Ina Garten shares sweet anniversary pics: '48 years ago today and still dancing'

Today you may know her as the "Barefoot Contessa," but 48 years ago she was a newly minted bride named Ina Garten.

And as we can see from throwback photos from 1968 that she recently posted on Instagram, she and her husband, Jeffrey, have been taking a happy bite out of life all this time.

The onetime Ina Rosenberg met her future husband when she was just 15 and they wed five years later. The pair both had government jobs in Washington, D.C. (hers was in the White House; his in the State Department), but eventually she decided to start up a specialty food store.

These days, Jeffrey often appears on her cooking show and helps out; her latest book, published in October, is called "Cooking for Jeffrey."
