This is the card that I made for our friends wedding we are attending today. The chicken design is not my own but from the invitation that was designed by the couples friend. The wedding is in their backyard (weather permitting since we have been getting rain this weekend) and I hope the chickens are invited too. At least I will get to see them in their coop.
This is the start of fall wedding season because we are attending another wedding on Saturday (in MN!). Lars and I had our anniversary this last Friday but we are celebrating this weekend. For the last couple of years I kept insisting that our anniversary was on the 5th and Lars had to remind me that it was the 4th, the only way I could remember was if I looked at the quilt. So this year I actually remembered, but it was a busy day and we didn’t see much of each other. We had been planning on celebrating over the weekend anyway, but I remembered to wish Lars a happy anniversary on the phone when we talked in between busy things that day and he didn’t believe me. He made me go look at the quilt because I had convinced him it was the 5th for so long. But we have the whole weekend to celebrate and we have Monday off too.
Happy wedding weekend.

Yesterday was our anniversary and we ate the 3 year old top of our wedding cake. It was stale good. As stale as a frostbitten kransekake gets in three years but as tasty as sugar and almond always is. You can see in the photo that we pulled 12 rings off of the top. You know what that means (if you don’t: legend says that a couple will parent as many children as the number of rings that come off the top of the cake). My mom frosted the cake so we accused her of rigging the frosting up to break at that point and she admitted that she did rig it but not for that many rings. In any case we don’t have 12 kids yet..
Of course we didn’t have just one cake at our wedding, we had another cake, a number of tortes and other deserts too. I made the kransekake and Lars made all of the wonderful tortes. We like our sweets.
We are visiting my parent’s this weekend, which is why we finally ate the cake out of their freezer. Not a romantic weekend, but we are taking another vacation next month to celebrate our anniversary (when we could get the reservation to an old guard station cabin).
Today we went to The Scoop and had some yummy Brain Freeze ice cream. We sat outside and enjoyed our “high fat, high quality” creamy goodness and watched people walking by (yes, some people in Spokane do walk) and a dog sitting by the table next to us and it felt like Portland. It was maybe the best ice cream we have ever had, and we have eaten a lot of ice cream.
