Time to Raise Toast with Cake and Roasted Peanut Pesto Pizza for Anniversary Celebrations !!!


"The best and the most beautiful things in the World cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart." 
                                                                                          Helen Ketter

I am touched with these words as we complete a decade of love and companionship... !

Today we are Celebrating our 10th Marriage Anniversary and a Perfect time to raise a toast.... ! Hope we create more sweet memories and always cherish the joy of being together with  each other. All these years were beautiful and blissful and though wish many more to come and live happily ever after... !!!

Ten Years back, down the memory lane on 15th February 2004. 

It was a bright Sunday morning. I woke up very early in the morning. Little excited for new life and new beginnings and more anxious about the unknowns and unplanned things destined to come along the way. As I walked through the memory lane, I had a glimpse of my childhood days running in our backyard in little red polka dot frock. Missing all those good old days of being in play school to elementary to high school and graduating from college and university. Every day was a better day, more meaningful and memorable, yet the recurring thoughts of old bonds with family and friends were flashing before my eyes, making it misty for a while.

The time flew and ten years rolled up in a breeze...!!!! 

Recalled and refreshed the memories of some of the best days and some not of the best days of life as life did appeared scrambled at times...

The reminisces of past make me realize that the good old days are rolling up fast. And I need to make the best of the present time! 

The day was spent in entertaining ourselves at home by watching Winter Olympics held at Sochi, Russia. The games are truly captivating showcasing the array of skills and talents of uber talented people. It was so much fun and really rejuvenating to see the athletes doing their very best and so much inspiring and motivating to follow them. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn virtually from the masters in their respective sports. Indeed an incredible league of people carving a name for themselves and their homeland on international platform. A toast to their spectacular performance too !!!

Since it's snowing here continuously from past few days,  we baked our favorite dish - Pizza with Roasted Peanuts, Veggies and Pesto and Lemon Poppy Seed cake at home for the celebrations.... !




Beautiful Roses for the day !


Pizza base getting ready...



It's Fun to be a Selfie... !!!


The Happy Time begins... !!!

Baking Signature Cake for the Occasion!!!

 Bundt Lemon Poppy Seed Cake !!!
Perfect Cake to Celebrate the Precious Moments !!!


These years were blissful yet the best years are still to come, I guess....!

Many Thanks for being here. Have a wonderful day and stay warm !

Cheers,
Sonia

Happy Anniversary, Sonia! That Helen Keller quote is one of my favorites:)

What a lovely story you have shared. So many milestones are happening for you these past few months. I wish you much happiness:)

I must admit, I don't eat pizza often but I'm sure I have never heard of a pizza quite like yours. Very interesting. The Lemon Poppy Seed Cake looks very tempting:)

The best is yet to come Sonia, enjoy the ride! Happy Anniversary! Wishing you many, many, many more:)

Happy Anniversary Sonia. Your roses are beautiful, and the second picture of them is so cool. The pizza looks delicious. Homemade pizza is the best. My son used to make it for us all the time. I love the Helen Keller quote and had it on my refrigerator for many years. Your blog is so pretty, and I would love it if you would follow us. I would certainly follow you as well.

Have a beautiful day.

Happy Anniversary Sonia, I hope you had a lovely day.
How strange it is that we remember the things we wore at certain times. Your little red polka-dot frock sounds delightful. I remember smocked dresses – see now I’m really showing my age!

Sonia said...

Hello Barbara, I do remember that dress because it was my favorite and used to wear it too often. I used to had smoked frocks when I was too lil' made by my mom too, now recalling and missing the hay days... ! Thank you so much for the warm wishes.
Luv, Sonia
