Wedding cake

Cathedral cake

Four days until our wedding. Yay! Today we received our first wedding gift from our registry. A lovely cathedral bundt pan, which I put to use tonight making a “96 proof chocolate cake”, which will be served on our wedding day, and thus I present to you our wedding cake. It turned out beautifully and smells fantastic. I can’t wait to try it.

The anticipation of getting married catches me off-guard constantly. One moment everything is normal, getting married this weekend feels so natural, just like a trip to the beach, the next moment the gravity of the act takes over. This is huge! Me! Getting Married! I always hoped I would meet my love, my partner, but I never felt confident that it would happen. Yet, here it is and it feels so obvious, so comfortable, it is easy to downplay how wonderful it is.

We have our party supplies bought, our outfits ready, the rings carefully boxed and now the cake made. We leave for the beach on Thursday.
