Happy, happy 40th anniversary to my incredible parents!! Forty years! Their marriage and obvious love for one another (and everyone around them) is deeply inspiring and beautiful, and they have given us such a strong example to look up to and learn from. Their steadfast commitment, perspective and outlook on life, penchant for laughter and humor, wisdom and patience, constant support and encouragement, and unconditional love are simply incredible. Yesterday, May 23rd, was a day of great celebration and joy for my mom and dad – and for everyone who knows and loves them.
My mom and dad are high school sweethearts, went to college together, were married weeks after graduation, became the world’s best parents (truly) a few years later, now have the world’s cutest grandson with another grandchild arriving soon, and are celebrating their fortieth anniversary with a whole lot of beautiful life lived and shared together – and so much more to come. We are so, so, so grateful for our family and for these two who cultivated so much love.
Marriage, while it can have harder moments or seasons, is simply the best, and we admire theirs a ton! And witnessing my mom and dad’s legacy in their strong marriage is the heartbeat behind why I love weddings so much. They’re the start of a lifetime commitment, unconditional love, and world-changing marriages! Seriously, aren’t they the cutest?! Love you forever, Mom and Dad! Congrats on FORTY years, and thanks for being such a beautiful inspiration for all of us!!
