Happy 35 Years Mom and Dad

Today my parents have been married for 35 years! That almost doesn't seem to happen enough now a days. Congratulations Mom and Dad!

I hope 25 years from now Joe and I will be able to say the same thing. I'm not sure what it is that makes my parents marriage work. Sometimes I must say I don't know how my mom puts up with my dad. Sorry dad, but it's true, you have your moments. Mom, back me up here. But they truly love each other. They have been a couple since 1969 and they haven't looked back since. I know it wasn't always easy for either of them though. They really truly love each other though. And 2 children and 4 grandchildren later they are still going strong. So they must be doing something right.

So Mom and Dad I really hope to have what the two of you have in 25 years with my own husband. Thanks for giving me a look at a good marriage growing up and something that I can strive to achieve in my own life.
