A Fun 30th Anniversary Surprise Party

On the 19th of this month Nick and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary. Yup hard to believe that it has been 30 years since we exchanged vows on a cool Sunday afternoon at a Catholic Church in Elizabeth, NJ.

We have raised two wonderful children. I am proud to say they turned into pretty incredible adults. They are smart, hardworking and compassionate. In May we welcomed a terrific young man into the family when Andy became our son-in-law.

Even though we've lived in NJ the entire time we've been married, we traveled to some interesting places from the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii to the beaches of Bermuda, from the cable cars of San Francisco to the Vatican in Rome and the beautiful Alps in Switzerland. And how can I forget all those DisneyWorld trips. Our friends Ron and Elaine introduced us to the Magic Kingdom back in 1987.

To help us celebrate our 30th Anniversary, Ron and Elaine hosted a surprise brunch at their home for us. They invited our Rutgers tailgating friends ( including my niece and her husband) , friends from church, neighbors who became friends and friends of friends who have become our close friends. The food was delicious and the company on a crisp fall day was the best. I am so thankful for all of them . We are truly blessed to have them in our lives.

"Thanks Ron and Elaine" - just doesn't seem strong enough for how much we appreciate all they did to pull this off. Even my hesitation since I didn't know when my surgery would be scheduled ( it is the 13th) didn't stop them from putting together such a fun time.

May we all share many more fun times together.


Every Day is a Blessing.
