Two years today!
I, Sally, take you, Matthew,
to be my husband,
to have and to hold
from this day forward;
for better, for worse,
for richer, for poorer,
in sickness and in health,
to love and to cherish,
till death us do part;
according to God's holy law.
In the presence of God I make this vow.

Cutting the cake

Love is a temporary madness;
It erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.
And when it subsides you have to make a decision.
You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.

Because this is what love is.
Love is not breathlessness,
It is not excitement,
It is not the promise of eternal passion.
That is just being "in love", which any fool can do.

Love itself is what remains when being in love has burned away,
And this is both an art and a fortunate accident.
Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground,
And when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches,
They find that they are one tree and not two.

It's not a poem, it's a quote from a book. And I ought to leave it for someone else on my friends list to look smug by guessing...

Happy anniversary! ♥

(that is some spectacular double posting. I will add that I have never seen pictures of your wedding before, that you look gorgeous, and that everyone in the shot looks content and happy.)

Congratulations! I recognised the quote from the film, not the book (how uncouth of me) - it's Pncgnva Pberyyv'f Znaqbyva.
