true love:



I feel so proud and blessed to say that today marks my sixteen year wedding Anniversary (we met in a bakery!). And so far, i loved every. single. moment.

Even the not so glamorous ones.

When i saw him on a rainy afternoon we were just two strangers with nothing more in common than a craving for something sweet and two flimsy umbrellas.. today we share not only a love of bakeries but a love for each other. That maybe because i married a man who gives me the strength to stand tall every day, who puts up with my german cooking and overreacting, and when i burn the pancakes in the morning he doesn't tell me i burned the pancakes. And because he taught me to let go when it's time to let go. And when our daughter is acting like a typical 3 year old, he doesn't tell her. He is the kindest most even-tempered and tolerant dad i know. (despite the fact that he is quietly hoping our girl will make it to Wimbledon. Actually i think he is counting on it) And when I say that playing the stock market was juvenile and irresponsible and the stock i wouldn't let him buy went up 25 points, he doesn't hate me.

So today, i am using my quill pen, dip it in indigo ink and write him a card - with an array of layered hearts. I believe some things deserve the permanence of paper.
