Today is my 8-year wedding anniversary to the love of my life. I'm very proud of the family we created together and the bond we have. Marriage is never easy; you constantly have to work on it. I put my all into my marriage and show Joe respect -- I respect him as a father and as a husband more than words can say. We are so blessed and I am grateful. He's truly the love of my life!
So we are still in Cali! How gorgeous is the estate we stayed at? Now this is vacation. It was truly breathtaking! The vineyard Chris and the boys took us to visit was so much fun. I had no idea it was supposed to be just business! The Manzo/Laurita clan didn’t look so happy. Sorry, guys! We were on vacation and there was wine everywhere… I don't think we should have gone on that business trip! LOL! We probably should have stayed at the estate and let them do their business thing.
The surprise 50th birthday dinner for Caroline was so sweet and so special coming from her family. I love the bond that family has, they are unbreakable. Whenever I see them all together, I always think of my own family with one girl and two boys. I know we will be as happy as they are when I'm 50! God bless them. The speeches were perfect, and we all shed a tear!
