Happy anniversary to my Mom and Dad! Today they are celebrating 40 years of marriage. They got married at the end of May in Montana, and when they stepped out of the church after the ceremony, they were surprised to discover a snow storm had arrived. You can see the dark storm clouds in this photo. My family talks about this photo often, because there is something poetic about stepping out into a storm at the beginning of a marriage, and facing it together. Forty years later, they are still happily married and are wonderful role models for me and my brother in our own happy marriages.
I hope there aren’t any storm clouds for them today, because they are celebrating their 40th anniversary with friends at the beach. Mom and Dad, I wish we could be there, too! But we’ll see you very soon. Happy anniversary! I love you!
