Our Anniversary

Today is our 10th Anniversary. Ten whole years. Ten happy years. Two kids. Six moves. Five cars.

We had a quiet day together with the kids. A little shopping replaced some things that have worn out over ten years. It was a nice day...the kids went to Grammy's restaurant tonight..no kidding, she actually made them a menu...and we went to our preferred restaurant for all occasion, Indian! yum.


We are now living where we got married. One of the things that was important to me about this anniversary was that that we get our wedding cake again, since we are close to the bakery that made it the first time. When i was thinking about this...mind you not too hard...i thought for a brief moment i could get a cake like these above. Get the cake that i would if i had to choose it over again, but then i decided that authentic was better...even if it meant it was maybe slightly out of taste or out dated.




So i went to the cake counter and told the ladies there that i would like to order a very small wedding cake. I did not go totally prepared(went all off of memory), so some of the decoration was missing, but i think it came out pretty close. To celebrate we had a few friends over to share it with us. If you look close you can see the old one in the picture on the counter. Make sure to wave back at Chris!!!



Happy Anniversary Babe!! Here is to 10 more great years!! Love you!!!!!

Happy anniversary to you too babe. I love you more today then ever. It's amazing where we've been in ten short years. I can't wait to see what happens in the next ten and beyond.

Congratulations!! You've made it 1/4 of the way to where Dad and I are now. We love seeing your "love" and how it has grown and matured. Your post brought me to tears, yet again!

Leslie: I'm tired keeping up with all your moves and your life! gosh and you had to pack up all the sewing stuff each time too!
What surprised me was your cake, almost identical to the one for my son which I made but had decorated with yellow flowers instead.
great blog!

Did you use the sword to cut it too?!

How sweet. I look forward to getting married so I can celebrate anniversaries. Congratulations!

Alisa said...

Congratulations Leslie! We were 10 years married this past April, so we are pretty close. Now I'm curious how old you are, but that's totally rude to ask, isn't it? I'm 31.

I remember sitting at a picnic table on Ft. Rich hearing your wedding story for the first time- I've always loved that your reception was on a boat... very romantic, sweet friend. And wasn't it for your anniversary that I got to be your flower delivery gal one year? Anyways, congratulations! We're nine years this summer and I might steal your cake idea- I love your poetic soul.

Happy Anniversary! The cake is so pretty. 10 years is awesome. Doesn't it seem to go by so quickly? I wish you many more (a lifetime) years of happiness together.

yay! Happy anniversary! It so so darn sweet that Chris left you a comment!!! Champ is a great guy and he even occasionally reads my blog, but there is NO WAY he'd ever leave a comment. Your idea of the cake for your anniversary got my wheels spinning...

I missed you! It's good to be back and may I say I am already jealous that you won that sweet Waldorf doll?!
