40 years together.

Today is a very special day for my mom and dad--their 40th wedding anniversary!

Although life hasn't been quite as easy as these two kids probably thought it would be--raising three children, working multiple jobs, trying to make the money stretch, and more recently dealing with cancer and their own parents' failing health--they learned to work together and support each other, and they make a great team.

They created a family and a lot of happy memories. And they are very much loved by their kids, kids-in-law, and grandkids.

Hope you guys find some time to remember and celebrate this weekend! Congrats and lots of love to you both!

Well that is the cutest picture EVER. I just love your mom's hair...why we ever ditched such fabulous hairdos I'll never know.

A very happy belated anniversary to your folks! Forty years is a wonderful accomplishment.
