One year down, a lifetime to go...isn't that how the saying goes? Luke and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary last month. As previously mentioned, we went to brunch at North Pond in Lincoln Park. We exchanged cards and the traditional "paper" gifts. He gave me some beautiful card sets from Papyrus. My Mother-In-Law also showered us (okay, mostly me) with gifts too. She's so sweet! Flowers, antique china and diamond earrings!!! Luke mentioned to her that she was "showing him up" (haha), but I didn't really mind. It was a wonderful gesture. I can't believe it's already been ONE year. Time flies when you're having fun!
I was adamant about saving the top tier of our wedding cake (a.k.a. cupcake tower) for our 1 year anniversary. The Carrot Cake was delicious back then...could it be just as good a year later (and frozen)? After defrosting and unwrapping it, it looked safe enough to try so we both dug in. Verdict: Very yummy! The coconut frosting was still my favorite part...thanks again, Traveler's Cafe!
