An Anniversary Celebration

Over the weekend, Travis (my husband) and I had the pleasure of helping his parents celebrate their 40th Wedding Anniversary. They were married in Las Vegas at the Silver Wedding Bell Chapel in 1972....I wish I had a photo from their wedding day to share with you - they have a fabulous wedding photo. To the right is a photo of the happy couple taken at our wedding in 2000.

We decided to have a nice afternoon lunch at our house and my husband would fire up the grill. He barbecued the meats and I made all the fixings....and because my father-in-law is a "chocoholic", we stopped by the local bakery for a beautiful German chocolate cake. With red ruby as the classic gift material for the 40th anniversary, I found some incredible hand blown ruby red wine glasses for a gift (silly me, I didn't take a photo) - we also picked up a bottle of chocolate wine for the man who can never have enough chocolate. It truly was a lovely afternoon as we reminisced about the last forty years while enjoying (for the most part) a home cooked meal.

Wishing my mother-in-law and father-in-law many more years of happiness...may your marriage continue to be blessed with love, joy, and memorable occasions!
