Cake & Words

I’ve decided to combine my Illustration Friday and Inspire Me Thursday this week. My youngest sister is soon to be married in August and also a cousin next month. Since wedding cheer is in the air, I was inspired to create a wedding cake coupled with a lovely poem by Emily Dickinson. All this wedding talk brings me back to my wedding day almost 13 years ago. One of the most wonderful days of my life. My groom & I walked on clouds the whole day!

Wedding cake with words

It’s all I have to bring today,
This, and my heart beside,
This and my heart and all the fields,
And all the meadows wide.
Be sure you count- should I forget,
Someone the sum could tell.
This and my heart and all the bees,
Which in the clover dwell.

~Emily Dickinson

    I love the playfulness of your line. And the colors are subtly divine. This has nothing to do with your cake image, but I love your background pattern on your website. Nice.
