Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
– William Shakespeare 1609
This sonnet was read at our wedding 2 years ago, and I often recite it to Kyle. I am a true Shakespeare lover, and I love the sentiment in this poem that love lasts forever can can withstand anything. After 2 short years of marriage I can still picture forever with Kyle, and I can only hope for many many more years and anniversaries.
I love Kyle, but I also want more anniversaries because it gives me an excuse to make our wedding cake every year!
I made my own wedding cake and the recipe is so divine, I plan on making it every single year of our marriage. That’s a lot of cake.
Last night, we celebrated with a parmesan polenta, mushroom, shrimp, and broccolini dish- so delicious!
And cake for dessert of course!
We also relaxed over the weekend and watched ‘Spotlight.’ Have you seen it? It’s really good and not as uncomfortable to watch as I had imagined, given the topic.
We had the best weekend celebrating 2 years of marriage. Here’s to 100 more!
What do you do to celebrate wedding anniversaries?
