Love that Lasts: 27 Years & Counting

In a world of celebrity gossip hyper-focused on break-ups and divorce…it warms my heart when I hear about a celebrity couple showing that love can stand the test of time.

Keep the Cake would like to wish Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick “Happy 27th Anniversary!

Kevin & Kyra were married on September 4, 1988. He was 29 and she was 23. They were married the same year that they both starred in the movie “Lemon Sky.”

It is not the number of years between 1988 and 2015 that blows my mind. It is the fact that Kevin seems to be more in love with Kyra today than he did 27 years ago. He made headlines yesterday professing his love for Kyra to the world. Check out this article from the Huffington Post talking about their anniversary and featuring an adorable photo of the lovebirds as a  young couple:

Kevin Bacon Adorably Reminds Us He’s Been Kyra Sedgwick’s Husband For 27 Years

Also read their Engagement Announcement as it was featured in the NY Times in the spring of 1988:

Kyra M. Sedgwick And Kevin Bacon, Actors, Engaged

And remember you most likely are less than 6 Degrees away from someone who attended that beautiful wedding 27 years ago! Cheers Kevin & Kyra!

Quote of the Week: Albert Einstein & Love

physics-765638_1280

“Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”

Albert Einstein

Newlyweds Need Romance Too!

Everyone pictures the first couple years of marriage to be perfect “newlywed” years of bliss & romance everyday. But that isn’t reality. Life gets in the way. And work & responsibilities will always be part of Life. You need to nurture your marriage from Day One. Now is the time to start threading habits in your everyday routines or traditions to keep your marriage healthy & strong. Nothing big, extravagant or expensive. Just enough to remind you to not take your relationship for granted. Here is a few basic tips we suggest… They may seem obvious – but sometimes you overlook the basics! Proven Winners!

Tip #1: Pick up a Phone – Your partner is worth more than a text….sometimes a spontaneous phone call can brighten their day! Just the sound of your voice during a busy day at work may mean the world to themconversation-687877_1280

Tip #2: Random Acts of Kindness – Always keep in the back of your mind what little things make your partner smile. What little surprises can you sprinkle throughout the year? Breakfast in Bed has always been a classic surprise!

Tip #3: Traditions & Routines – It is never too early to start traditions with your spouse. Romantic little moments that you make time for once a week. Maybe its a Friday Night Movie on the couch or Wednesday Night Stroll in the park after dinner. There is nothing wrong with scheduling romantic time in your chaotic lives!

Tip #4: Write from the Heart – I have always been a fan of the love note found in my lunch box or taped to the bathroom mirror. It could be just a few words “I love you!” or it could be your classic love letter. It is one of those romantic gestures that you will carry with you for weeks, months or years. Every time you come across that little bit of paper with your spouses’s chicken scratch… you smile!woman-792162_1280

Tip #5: Laughter is the Best Medicine – Humor is sometimes the only thing you can depend on in your marriage. You will have unexpected Ups & Downs. You will have Wins & Losses. You don’t know what the future will hold. But if you can still make each other laugh, find humor in your mistakes and enjoy a good comedy together once in awhile…you will be okay!

Tip #6: Just Because – It is customary to send flowers for Valentine’s Day, Birthdays & Anniversaries. I will tell you now. Don’t do it. Send flowers on a random Tuesday months after your spouse’s birthday or weeks before your anniversary. Just Because. Your spouse will love them 10 times more than any given holiday. They will feel like they won a special little lottery when they think the delivery man is walking to the woman 2 cubes from her but instead he stops at her desk. Just Because = She will Love you Forever!
