When the day was done...

This is the final post from the 60th anniversary party which is bittersweet to me. As I mentioned in my very first post
"A Day to Remember" I took 265 pictures which is amazing considering all that went on during that busy day, but I just wanted to capture every second of every moment and never forget the joy and love that surrounded me that sweet day with our family.
Out of all those photo's I chose the best of the best so that my MIL and FIL could have their beautiful love story told and to share with all of you what it means to celebrate a marriage of 60 years. Through good times and bad, through sickness and health, for better or worse, to have and to hold from this day forward, till death do us part. That, is the true meaning of the word, "marriage".

These two wonderful people, Arnold and Betty have been a shining example to their family of what the commitment of marriage means and their eldest son, Mark, my husband is proof of their lessons in life.

He is my husband, my companion, my biggest supporter, my best friend through life and nineteen years later (twenty-two together) I am still in love with our marriage and this man. For that reason, this last post is for Mark to say thank you for all your support, your help and back breaking effort with my vision of the day for your parents 60th anniversary party.
I am so blessed to have you in my life, I love you...
your best wife...Mrs.La Bella Vie

Mark surprised me with this beautiful corsage the day of the party.
He said it was because of all my effort and hard work I put into this event, and that I deserved something pretty to wear that day too. How sweet is that?!

and this was how my little girl kitty, "Pearl" and I spent the next day...


  1. A lovely tribute to your in-laws and their long happy marriage, and to your dh too. The corsage is beautiful and very romantic.

  2. What a beautiful week of pictures it has been! You deserved a rest with Pearl! Enjoy some down time for awhile!!

  3. MIL and FIL can't say THANK YOU enough and the above tribute brings tears to my eyes.Our kids and their kids are the best in the world.60 years is a long time but the days just keep coming and going by and when we look back we can't help say, "where did the time go"
    MUCH LOVE, Father Arnold and mother Betty

  4. Ok. I totally teared up reading their note on here! You made that such a special day for them that no one will ever forget that was lucky enough to be a part of it. You should upload your pictures to Kodak and make a book for them and you!!! You husband obviously has had great role models! That was so thoughtful of him to get you a corsage. I love the picture of you and Pearl! You definitely deserved a day of rest! Hope you are having a great weekend!
