In August my husband and I will be celebrating 25 years of marriage. While it is only half the amount that his parents celebrated a couple of years ago, it happens to be many more years than my parents celebrated due to divorce. As I look at where God has brought us and the people we now are I can say that God is good. Don't get me wrong, we have had our share of struggles along the way but we have also been very blessed. So I have given myself a challenge: find 25 free or low cost touristy events in Ottawa and the surrounding area that we can do to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We have lived in the capital of Canada for 25 and have not yet seen and done it all. Some events will bring back memories and others will be freshly imprinted upon our hearts and minds. My list is longer than 25 because once I began looking if kept on growing. Join us as we celebrate and discover all that this beautiful area has to offer its residents and tourists.
