Back in June the kids and I trekked to Wisconsin to help my dad's parents celebrate their 60th (!!!) wedding anniversary. 60 years people. They were high school sweethearts...
They renewed their vows and stood proudly together.
Sixty years, six children, twenty-one (I think!) grandchildren, and five great grandchildren add up to quite the married life.
My Aunt Kathleen made them a beautiful scrapbook filled with thoughts and memories written by their children and grandchildren. It was one of the most amazing things I've ever held in my hands. Our family is certainly not without its troubles, but I'd say they are far outweighed by blessings.
Tonight Matt and I celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary. Nothing would make me happier than to proudly be standing beside him in another 53 years. (We'll probably have colonized the moon by then, so the pictures will be really neat.)
