Two Years Strong

It's hard to believe May has already passed us by. Today we find ourselves at a fresh start to June, which also marks our wedding anniversary.

It's been 2 years since we officially got married here in Richmond, surrounded by a small group of close friends and family. When thinking about it, Tim and I both agree it feels longer than 2 years ago — probably because we've actually been in this relationship together coming up on 11 years. While we took things slow, I'm a true believer that when something is right, it will still be right if there's reason to wait.

Below is the most recent snap we've got together. This weekend we were trying to test out a handful of polaroid cameras we'd picked up at a local Flea market earlier in the morning. Hanging out and goofing around with my best guy — it's all I could ask for:

While we are still a young couple, we continue to grow and change together, and I can't help but be reminded of the poem we had read during our ceremony, Lorsque Tu Seras Vieux by Rosemonde GĂ©rard — the same poem my maternal grandmother kept in her wallet throughout the course of her 50+ year marriage.

When You Are Old
Every day I love you more and more,
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
I will not mind the wrinkles of your face;
My love will be deeper and more serene.

Think of all the springs which will fill our hearts.
My own memories will also be yours,
These common memories will entwine us more,
And constantly between us other ties will interlace.

It is true, we will be old, very old,
Weakened by age.
For, as you know, I love you more and more,
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.

We'll be traveling to London for a week later this month so have decided to formally celebrate our 2nd year anniversary while abroad. That being said, we do still have the frozen cake topper from our wedding that we're ambitiously planning to try later this evening...

Did you freeze and eat your wedding cake? Was it good or a terrible mistake? Wish us luck — we'll be sure to let you know how it goes.
