50 Years


This is my parents circa 1964. The lump is my little brother!
And they still have that chair....

Yesterday my mom and dad celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Cape Cod, their long ago honeymoon spot.

It hasn't been an easy 50 years for them, but their love has seen them through tough financial times, in-law woes, the trials and tribulations of having children Innocent and health crises. A whole lot of health crises.

I am so, so, lucky to have their example in front of me. Lord knows, the Man is no saint and we don't have a perfect marriage. But I know that watching my parents made me want something just as good for myself, and most days I have it.

I'm so damn lucky to have them for parents.
