While real roses adorned our wedding cake, this vintage cake topper did not, although I’m sure I’ve had at least as long as my husband. Back in my giftware days I thought it would make a cute card and here it is in my studio, still whole after many years of moves and shuffling about.
Today is our wedding anniversary. Passages from Tagore’s Firelies were read at the ceremony and it seems appropriate to quote this one after fifteen years of marriage:
Let your love see me even through the barrier of nearness. – Rabindranath Tagore
Dear ones, Marie & Robin:
The vintage cake topper is still whole, & so are you both. In some of today’s seemingly “throw-away” marriages, it’s becoming a bit uncommon.
Union: a state of harmony and agreement. Difficult to come by, but add some essential ingredients: stong love, mutual respect, caring, patience with a listening ear & fortitude and you have the making for a lasting relationship.
Here’s to HEALTHY, LASTING RELATIONSHIPS for us all. Hear! Hear!
