So today is the 36th anniversary of my mom and dad saying "I do." They are two of my most favorite people and while they don't always get along (who does?), they make me smile and I know that they love each other. I have many pictures of them and the oldies are the ones that crack me up the most... there's something funny about seeing your parents when they were your current age... it's weird.
Anyway... here are some of my favorite pictures of them together:
Sometime in the 80s
New Year's at Aunt Karen's... late 80s?

Thanks for getting married mom and dad.... and for sticking together through ups and downs. You have shown me what marriage takes to make it and you are an inspiration. Making it to 36 years without killing each other... awesome!
Love you both!!!
