And Now for the Cake!

Bill also brought home pizza and salad and a bottle of wine ... all because this little blog turned one!


Get the symbolism? Sun and Candlelight? That would be chocolate underneath all that buttercream. :) It was very yummy.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.

I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

(Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

P.S. Template tinkering is underway! Please bear with me while I go back and forth ... :)
