50th Anniversary

Today’s post is a little different! Though we did take a few family photos, this evening was a party…a 50th anniversary!

I met with Bob, Eileen and their friends and family at La Piazza, a delightful Italian restaurant in Manotick with great food, atmosphere, and even live music! After arriving in the La Piazza limo, the party guests enjoyed wine and appetizers while wandering through the lovely courtyard.

The private room was lovingly decorated, complete with personalized menus and a beautiful anniversary cake.

The happy couple had great stories to tell, and many words of love and gratitude for those gathered to celebrate with them. Almost 5 years into my own marriage, I’m always interested to hear what those with more experience have to share!
