Pear and Chocolate Cake- Happy Anniversary! -By Brii
I know I know, probably you are all already thinking about St. Valentines day,
(by the way have you seen Susan's valentine breakfast?)
but yesterday my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary!
it seems yesterday we knew each other,
it seems yesterday everything started
it seems yesterday, but it is today and will be tomorrow
I believe that every day is a new day, nothing is for granted, you have to earn love and respect, you have to show love and respect, you have to pull up your sleeves and work hard together to stay together.
and now since my dear mother in law is not here with us anymore, all this gets more important. you have to live and enjoy every day, every minute of it!
so, stay close to each other, help each other, love each other.
I found this on the table in the morning.
Flo & Brii
and as I had told Gokki (daughter n°3) that her grandmother always used to bring
me the years first Primroses as gift, for our wedding anniversary
when she came back in the evening, she and her boy friend Giovanni, brought my
a bunch of colorfull primroses.
the photo didn't come our very well, but it was very very pretty, and I hope you can
immagine the atmosphere.
I'm tried again this morning. :-D
