a 50th wedding anniversary celebration

Life was a flurry of activity last week in anticipation of my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration ~ crafting a scrapbook for them, creating wine bottle labels and thank you cards, a cake to bake and decorate, and sewing a dress for me out of this blue-aqua linen...

(Somewhere there are pictures of the dress, I will try to post them.)

Sunday morning was a beautiful mass for my parents, a delicious brunch that they arranged at a canalside restaurant, and then back to their home for more food and celebrating.

This is the cake I made along with their original wedding cake topper, which my mom has carefully saved for all these years..It was a happy day.

Thanks Mom & Dad for setting such a great example all these years!
