I know everyone thinks they have the best parents on the planet, but mine actually ARE the best. And today, they are celebrating 28 years of wedded bliss. Congratulations, Mom and Dad!
As a child, I held my parents' marriage in such high regard. I wanted the exact relationship they had when I married down the road. I wanted us to be a wife and husband who respected one another, loved one another and worked together in equal partnership, just like my mom and dad did. I learned from their example and continually allow their love for one another to influence the way I interact with my own sweetheart. So far, it's been working really well for us.
(Maybe they should write a book?)
Twenty-eight years later, they've got five freaking awesome kids (just being honest!), three "new" kids in their oldest children's spouses and two of the cutest grandchildren known to mankind.

Beautiful posterity, Mom and Dad. We all love you!
(And thanks for getting together, otherwise we wouldn't exist.)
