For the first time in my life, I baked a cake at midnight. And we cut it and ate it soon after. Just as we were watching the movie that talks about finding love in the most unusual of places and circumstances: Dil Chahta Hai.
Close to three years ago, we met one another, at the most unexpected of places. Close to two years ago, we knew were going to be friends for life. A little over a year ago, we realized we didn't want to walk the rest of the path alone. Exactly a year ago, we tied the knot.
Very eventful 365 days these have been. At times it feels like the first anniversary took an awfully long time coming. At times it feels like the year ran past and we just didn't realize it. We've packed in so much into this past year that it will stand out.
My cake is an adaptation of my standard Golden Glow cake and I just substituted 1/2 cup of flour with 1/3 cup of cocoa powder. The rest is exactly the same. So I won't write down the entire procedure again.
Love actually is all around us, if we only care to look. I am glad I was looking despite everything that was happening in my life at the time. The tough times only make you stronger. And they probably also make you believe. In just about everything. Love included.
