39th Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday 2nd July was our 39th Wedding Anniversary. Wow, can't really imagine we have been married  for 39 years now. Can't wait to celebrate our 40th year, the Ruby Anniversary next year, God's willing , that is if we are alive then. I made a simple Strawberry  layered sponge cake with strawberry whipped cream frosting to commerate our special day. Supposedly to be a bigger cake but unfortunately I dropped the cake while unmoulding the sponge cake. Looking thru the egg rack on the fridge door , I found that I had 3 eggs left for a smaller cake. Thus, the cake is a small one. This will do as I just wanted to commerate this special day with a cake. The cake turned out great. Fluffy and light yet moist at the same time. I used canned strawberry for fillings. The strawberry filling ,surprising not overly sweet and have a tangy taste, which is perfect for layered cake . I added fresh flowers from the balcony as decorative item for the cake top. We had a wonderful day together and I wrote a love note to the hubby though. 
Here is what I wrote to him.

We have endured the actual test of time, growing with one another and closer together every year, through good times and bad. Our anniversary will remind  us of the happiest time of our relationship but it also reminds us of the hardship we had to go through to get to those happy times. Our love becomes stronger over time. If we had a day full of heated but healthy marriage fights, remember I would cook your favourite dinner that very evening to make things right. On our anniversary I swear we will spend the rest of our lives watching Netflix  and  having lots of chats and chilling out on the balcony drinking Soju and counting the stars above.
Wishing many more years with you my Soulmate. May God's countenance continue to shine upon us as we live the balance of our lives together with Him as the Head of our marriage.
Loving you and our kids to bits. Happy Anniversary and still counting!
