I’m just going to start by saying that yes we did have these cookies at our wedding. Not this exact recipe mind you, but a very, very similar nutty, crumbly cookie covered in mountains of powdered sugar that were wrapped in the most precious cellophane packages and handed out as thank you gifts.
They were made (as almost everything at our wedding was) by a friend and tremendous baker and were exceptionally delicious at 3 am when I finally got around to eating something. I’ve had that day on my mind lately (we will be celebrating seven years together next week) and can’t believe how quickly the time has passed and what an incredible amount of living has gone on since that warm October day seven years ago.
Two kids, new jobs, a huge move, trips, major purchases, an amazing amount of dirty dishes, laundry, arguments, hurt feelings, apologies, and so much generosity that sometimes I am amazed that we have it in ourselves to continue to give more.
But we do. Every morning we get another chance to do it over. Reconnect, recommit, remember what made us fall in love in the first place….take a deep breath and do it all over again.
