Today is my husband’s and my 10th anniversary.
I went to the place where we bought our wedding cake ten years ago and ordered a small “cake topper” in a similar design to our original cake (which was very simple) and in the same flavor.
(carrot cake with cream cheese frosting)
I wanted to surprise my husband, Jon, with it.
But when I picked up the cake yesterday, the baker told me that I had to make sure to keep it cool because of the frosting.
Okay, do you know how hard it is to hide an entire cake in your refrigerator?
I tried to camouflage it with juice boxes and a bag of shredded cheese, but for all I know, Jon saw it yesterday and just didn’t say anything (because he’s very nice like that).
(oh, delicious cream cheese frosting, you are going to taste so good in my belly with a little glass of champagne)
A good friend told me this week that the traditional gift for 10th anniversaries is Aluminum or Tin because it is flexible, but durable, just like a marriage should be.
And because it represents something that can be bent without being broken.
How incredibly appropriate.
Here’s to 10 years of continually bending and reshaping ourselves, Jon … but never breaking apart.
