On Sunday we celebrated my In-law's 50th wedding anniversary. They wanted a small celebration...dinner with the family at their favorite Italian restaurant
It was in the same restaurant in which they celebrated their 40th anniversary
and it was the same restaurant in which they celebrated their 25th anniversary.
All I can say It's one darn good restaurant.
We had hot antipasto which was unbelievably yummy
I had the shrimp oreganata with angel hair pasta.
I looked over at my in-laws and they can argue and nudge each other all day long.
He'll tell her that she is cooking the sauce all wrong.
and she'll tell him to go jump in the lake.
but when we clinked our wine glasses.....they kissed.
...and for a moment I'm sure it brought them back all those years ago when they said "I do". They love each other. They need each other. A marriage lasting 50 years is a beautiful thing these days. They have seen good times and bad.
I have been married for 16 years and I hope and pray that we will one day far off in the future celebrate 50 years together......
and when he tells me I am cooking the sauce all wrong....
I'll tell him to go jump in the lake..... and he'll know I still love him with all my heart.
