Philip and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary on Wednesday night, the full moon of June, which was the date of our marriage.
He had rehearsal that night, so I baked a strawberry-chocolate tart and brought it to the theater. With wine and other libations, the entire company (of which I was an integral part for so long, and of which Philip is now a Helen Hayes Award-winning member) toasted us and heard our recommitment to one another. We do this in front of at least one living witness every year, and this year's was especially sweet for both of us.
All hail to Juno, Queen of Heaven, patronness of relationships and the magick of ongoing, loving commitments!

They hold a yearly event where 60 of the top chefs in Washingon provide tastings of their food. It's an orgy of food and Philip and I had a wonderful time at it during our weekly date night.)
