Happy 50th Anniversary!

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!

Hey Beth, I'm so glad things went well. We love the family picture. Anna Beth was so proud to see that Caitlin wore her necklace and that it matched perfectly.
