We celebrated my parents' (Ma-Ma and Pa-Pa) 50th wedding anniversary on Sunday with a fancy schmancy dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House. As I sit here thinking about how much fun we had together and how delicious the food was, I realize just how blessed I am to have such a wonderful example of marriage set before me. My parents never ever fought in front of my sister and me and never let on if there was a worry in the household. They kissed good night every single night and usually held hands on our family neighborhood walks. Daddy always bought Mama a dozen red roses for their anniversary and took her out to eat at one of two restaurants: Boots or Fogcutter. I love them dearly, and I am so very happy that we were able to celebrate this important milestone together!
