30.

Yesterday my parents celebrated thirty years of marriage. I am incredibly blessed to have the parents I do. They are not only my role models, but friends. I am proud of them for all they have accomplished together and model my own marriage after theirs.
I know marraige isn't always easy, but I've never seen my parents fight. I grew up in a house where my parents loved coming home to each other. They held hands. They hugged. They laughed. I know that is not the norm for many kids and so I am extremely grateful for the love my parents share.
We celebrated my parents this weekend because they deserved to be celebrated. They are loving, caring, kind, generous, forgiving, and wise. They taught me what a good marriage should look like. They taught me to be loving. Kind. Generous. Open minded. Forgiving. Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have these two people in my life. I love you, mom and dad! To the moon and back.
