We were pleased to receive an invitation to John and Marilyn’s Anniversary Celebration.
Marilyn and I were childhood friends.
We don’t remember when we met. It was probably in Sunday school.
We were told to park at Martin Tree Service – and that transportation would be provided to Jeff (their son) and Hannah’s barn.
We loved the transportation that was provided.
It was no ordinary barn. It was built for gatherings like this.
Marilyn and John were visiting with guests when we arrived.
The barn was beautifully decorated.
I had fun looking at her scrapbook and finding a photo of myself (center).
I forgot that I was one of their gift receivers.
Shortly after we got there the wedding party assembled for a photo.
Soon everyone began calling, “Kiss! Kiss!” – and they quickly complied.
After enjoying a delicious catered meal (can you believe it, I forgot to take pictures of the food) and visiting with people we knew – and a few we didn’t know – we prepared to go home.
Each of us was encouraged to take one of these cupcakes home – a gift from John and Marilyn.
The same tractor and wagon took us back to our car.
I love that many of our friends are celebrating their golden anniversary this year – and next.
