Cake and Marriage

When I got married 13 years ago yesterday, I was a sweet young thang:

Back then, I only ate white food. It wasn't a conscious prejudice...I was just ridiculously picky and would experience a self-induced gag reflex over anything green. So I don't think I would have gone for this back then:

Yep, that's a CHEESE CAKE. A tiered stack of cheese wheels. Be still my beating heart. My wiser, smarter palette swoons over this one:

Wouldn't that be so perfect for an autumn wedding? My lack of a sweet tooth has been well-documented on this blog so this is right up my alley. It also reminds me how much can change over the years, how much richer and fuller our lives can become.

Eat, drink, and a toast to another 13 years of marriage!

Thanks to A Cup of Jo for the link. See The Cheese Shed for more goooorgeous photos.

I used to have the exact same palate as you: white food diet with an aversion to green. :o)

Thank goodness my palate has expanded as I've gotten older.
