My family sure knows how to make me cry. While I was in the shower I heard the buzzer downstairs, so I quickly got dressed and knew if it was important they would make their way in and ring our bell. I still had my hair wrapped in a towel when I saw it was a delivery man with a package from America.

Inside the box were two cake mixes and a frosting, along with a happy anniversary card from my family. Sent for a ridiculous $36.88. How incredibly thoughtful. It really warms my little heart. And anyone that knows me, knows that I do love cake.

Fortunately I have some frozen blueberries from our blueberry picking expedition (we went again this weekend and they were sadly closed for the season) so I can attempt to make something similar to our wedding cake. Last year when we were home around that time, my family even had the top of our cake replicated for our first anniversary - how sweet are they?

It looks like I will be baking on Thursday so Stefan and I can celebrate with some cake and champagne when he returns.

Thanks Mom, Dad, and Meem! I miss you and love you so much. ♥

Our cake was lemon with fresh blueberries in lemon frosting between the layers! You have excellent taste!

Happy Anniversary! Aren't care packages the best?

I will definitely take some pictures, although I'm debating on making cupcakes since they are more manageable with limited refrigerator space.

your cake sounds like it was divine. I spent my anniversary just the way you suggested and I had a really great day. I'm looking forward to sending some German goodies your way!
