A happy anniversary weekend

Hard to believe it's been almost a year already....

We'll be celebrating our first wedding anniversary in Savanna this weekend at the farm, so I thought I'd post about it now. This is a picture of our anniversary cake, which we got in exchange for a photo of us cutting the cake, from our cake lady. My friend Katie sent me the pic of us cutting the cake, for which I'm very grateful. Pete looks like he's lurching at the cake, ha ha, but it's a cute picture anyhow.

Our anniversary cake was a mini version of our wedding cake, complete with fresh daisies on top, and a basket weave pattern on the side. We got the Chocolate Amaretto Bailey's flavor for the filling, which is one of the fillings that was used on our actual wedding cake. I never did get a piece of Pete's groom cake, but I know it must have been good because Sam made it and she's an excellent baker. That day (and night) is still a blur, although I remember hanging out around the campfire at my parents' cabin after the reception, hair still filled with spray and ratted beyond belief. It was a fun way to end the festivities.

I have since had a few pieces of this cake already, and it's really good. Happy anniversary, Pete! And I will see you guys all next week. Hope you have a great weekend!

Gone, but not forgotten

I've been on a bit of a short hiatus from blogging lately—not intentionally, but there it is. I've just been unusually busy during the last few weeks, and too exhausted to even open up my laptop, much less think about blogging or photography or anything. I've finished up a freelance project and I'm feeling a bit rested after spending a weekend at my in-laws' farm, so I'm hoping to get back into things during the next several days. I've got lots of pix to post from visits to the farm, the zoo, etc...once I get them uploaded to my computer, that is.

Thanks to all of you who continue to support me and my blogs, and wait for my next post to show up. Hope you are all having a great summer, and relaxing as much as possible.
