Wedding Week – Anniversary Celebrations

We were hoping to celebrate our one year anniversary on a picnic at the Toronto Islands. We both took the day off work and bought all the fixings for a lovely picnic date.  We had the blanket and everything ready to go when we looked at the forecast. High of 14 degrees. UGH. Out on the island with the wind blowing off the lake it would feel like 10 degrees cooler. Definitely not sunny picnic at the beach weather. So we scrapped the picnic and headed downtown. We grabbed coffees and did some window shopping, strolled around some of our favorite places downtown. We went for lunch at Bannock, and shared an amazing duck poutine pizza.

OMG it was delish!

We did some more shopping, and then headed home to spend some time with the pup. After the sun went down, we closed the curtains on the deck, turned on the deck heater, broke out our picnic fixings, blankets and some good bubbly, and headed out to the back deck for our picnic. With music playing, great food and drink we enjoyed a lovely backyard picnic. It also included dessert of our frozen top tier of our wedding cake.  For all the brides-to-be out there; frozen for a year wedding cake tastes like it’s been, well, frozen for a year. Do yourself a favor, buy a small new cake (or a couple cupcakes) from your wedding cake baker. Then you can try a bit of your year old cake, then enjoy actual desert of fresh baked cake!

(It wasn’t that bad… the cake tasted pretty good, but the icing and fondant tasted like rocks.)
