Recently my parent in laws celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.
What a huge achievement!
I think I can speak for just about everyone in saying how proud of them we are. I kept thinking... imagine if they hadn't got together. Imagine if they had stopped at number 5 child. Imagine, imagine, imagine....
Alot of the family got together for a celebration lunch (which was wonderful). And I looked around a couple of times and thought "Oh wow, none of these people would be here today if they hadn't got married". It was quite an amazing insight.
My SIL Sue organised for letters to arrive from the Queen, the Govenor General, The Prime Minister and many others too. It was pretty neat! I didn't know you could do this but it was so special.
Everyone played their part in the day. I baked and decorated a cake, plus did the place card settings. Remember those butterflies I talked about a while back? Uh huh! That's them.
So thought I'd show you my wee creations....
So, my very best wishes go out to some wonderful role models who I'm proud to say I know and love and are ever so glad my children know and love as well.
