Decade

By the time you read this we’ll be in Spain for four days to celebrate our anniversary. Exactly ten years ago we got married, and slightly less than exactly ten years ago we went on honeymoon to French Polynesia.

Scanning the prints from the wedding album would be tricky and time-consuming, so I’ve just chosen a few shots from my own compact digital camera (one meeelion pixels!) which I took out a couple of times during the reception. Funny to think that were I to get married today I’d be tempted to post live photos from the ceremony from my phone. The honeymoon snaps are from the same device, as at that stage I didn’t have any other kind of camera. Which is also a strange thought.

The wedding cake, brought over with us from Brussels. As per tradition we kept the top half for the birth of our first child. The Italians were a little nonplussed by this English-style fruitcake, and couldn’t believe that we planned to keep part of it to eat almost a year later.

    Look at your gorgeous faces in paradise! Congratulations, and here’s to the next 10,20, 30, etc.

    How did the cake hold up? The tradition here is to keep the top of the cake for your first anniversary, but many folks cheat, and go back to the bakery where they had the 1st cake made, and get a fresh one for the anniversary. We didn’t bother, as our wedding cake sucked.

    the cake was very nice, we ate it a few months Chiara was born, so over a year afterwards, and it looked and tasted just great. The cake maker had offered to re-do the icing if it had gone yellow, but it hadn’t….
