It’s my Wedding Anniversary today!! When I look back, I just feel such a lovely warmth flowing through me. The exciting marriage journey with my loving hubby and the joy of seeing my girls grew up will always remain to be the best part of my life. Life is not a bed of roses or a pot of honey all the time but it’s really about going through thick and thin together. After each year, we can happily say, “We made it AGAIN!”
I was over the moon when last night my girl came back with a box of beautiful cupcakes for us. There were 4 big red velvet cupcakes and 6 small cute cupcakes. She said, ‘It’s the best cupcakes in the world for your wedding anniversary!’ with a cheeky, sweet smile on her face. Awwww….she just warms my heart, as always. My other girl is away but she called. That makes my day, too….*big smiles*.
Now I wonder why she bought 4 and 6. I tried to make out the number but all was wrong. 46 years married? Of course too wrong…haha. I am not that old! Divide by 2? No, it’s not 23 years too. I give up. I think the box can only hold that many….4 big ones and 6 small ones…..haha.
It’s the first time I have tasted red velvet cupcakes. It looks beautiful and tastes awesome. Apparently it’s one of the most popular cakes. The cheese frosting was just so rich and delicious. On top of the frosting was a cute tiny rose. It looks similar to the rose that I made for my 1st wedding cake for a friend, except that mine is giant size compared to this one. If you are interested to see the first wedding cake that I had ever made, click on First Wedding Cake.
Well, I will try and make this red velvet cake one day but without using the artificial red colouring. I hope to use the natural red colouring. Need to think how to go about with that. Maybe I can use the raspberry or red cherry juice or even beet root juice.
This is such a nice cake for any romantic events. Valentine’s Day is not too far away. I think I should make a nice one next February.
Today is my wedding anniversay. When it’s over, I am looking forward to the next one! I do hope that for all of you who are married, you are enjoying your married life together with your spouse. Marriage takes a lot of effort to make it work and make it exciting. As for us, I love to cook and my hubby loves to eat. Perfect combination huh!….*big smiles*. And with my girls always enjoying my food too, I can always smile while I cook or bake.
My hubby and I also love badminton very much. When we are happy, we play with each other. When we are not, we play against each other….haha. It’s ok if I lose but I am thrilled if I win……*grin*.
Exercise is important for good health apart from eating healthy food. It also helps us to de-stress from a hard day’s work. I once played badminton with a 65 year old man and he was just awesome. He looks fresh, alert and full of energy. He still plays tennis. He has always been my inspiration. I had also seen a 75 year old man played badminton. He was really good in it. Unbelievable to watch! I believe if we keep exercising, we are able to play sports until old age. The more we sit and laze around, the stiffer and slow we become as we grow older.
On top of badminton, we love to sit in cafes for a cup of coffee, something light to eat and just enjoy our time reading away or chatting. I find that totally relaxing and refreshing. In fact, I often go with my girls also, whoever is free, if hubby is not available. My girls like it too. We will just sit and chat and laugh. It’s good for mother-daughter bonding.
Now, if you are reading this and you are still single, do enjoy your single life now while preparing for a married life. Why not pick up some hobbies, one sport and one non-sport to start with if you haven’t. It’s good for the marriage when you get married one day. I have met quite a number of my friends who are still single who always tell me they have no time. No time? Then what would happen when you get married and have kids? Think about that.
Hope you are enjoying your day. Have fun cooking and baking! I am going to enjoy another of the cupcakes and a nice meal later.
