This past weekend turned out to be one of those times as my beloved hubs and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary.
Our daughter and her husband invited us to dinner at my very favorite restaurant, Cafe Adam, in Great Barrington, MA.
A beloved friend sent over a bottle of champagne!
Hubs and I started out with "Bittersweet Beet" salads, combinations of roasted beets, arugula, fresee, red leaf lettuce, hazelnuts, goat cheese, cocoa nibs and chocolate vinaigrette! Delish!
We also ordered hangar steaks with green garlic butter and house fries, all totally yummified.
Our daughter ordered this dish with duck, beans and so forth. She loved it.
Desserts at our table included apple with custard, a chocolate confection and coffee ice cream with decaf espresso on top with cherry biscotti!
This big box came next, filled with more than 40 letters, cards and remembrances of hubs and me from dear friends and family members all over the USA and beyond.
Our daughter had contacted almost everyone in our address books to participate in the memory box. What a special and heart-touching gift. (Thank you, honey, you are terrific.)
We also received a lovely cross, shown at top of post, with a "40 years" medal attached and a special book.
We will never forget that special and beautiful evening, celebrating 40 years of love, laughter, good and bad times, really great kids and their spouses, and togetherness.
Our hearts remain filled with love and unending gratitude.
