Yes it is 90210 day =) It makes me giggle, though I never watched the show.
OK the important thing about today is that it marks 26 years of marriage for my amazing parents!
YAY! My sis and I are so lucky to have been raised in such a happy and affectionate household. They have set the example for what I hope my marriage with J will be -- happy, full of love, hugs and trust. There will be bumps in the road but we will get through together. I feel like I remember them being in their late twenties, but definitely their thirties and watching them grow up together, as a couple and as parents.
I look through pictures and see just how young they were when they started a family and I am amazed that they did it so gracefully. I don't remember them fighting, though I'm sure there were disagreements. I don't remember wanting for anything that was a necessity...you know kids, they always WANT something, right?! =)
They have hugs and kisses and love to spare. They have grown as individuals but together, closer as the pages in their lives have turned. These two people are a beautiful example of what I want my life, marriage and family to be - happy, healthy and full of love. They still act like newlyweds, hold hands, hug, kiss and cuddle. I want to be like that in 26 years with J!
Happy 26th Anniversary to the most loving couple and amazing parents!
