Happily Ever After…..

17 Aug

Today I would like to honor two very special people in my life.  My Mom and Pop celebrate 55 years of wedded bliss. They are one of the happiest couples I know, and when Tyler and I were planning our wedding 2 years ago, it was their advice on maintaining a happy marriage that I sought out the most.

Every year on their anniversary they share a sweet tradition of giving each other the same two cards that they have been exchanging for years. They add little notes of remniscence of years gone by, but the card is the same. The result is a box full of love notes that tell a romantic story of a love that has stood the test of time. A true example of how profound the simplest token of affection can be.

They still hold hands, and they still say “I Love you.” Even more wonderful, they extend their love to so many others whether it be friends, family, or perfect strangers. They always have so much to give, and their’s is a relationship to emulate.

Some of my best childhood memories were spent with them, and while they had their fair share of hardships, you would never have known. There were always smiles & laughter and plenty of hugs and kisses between the two. They lean on each other, and its very apparent the strong bond that they share. Its amazing that after 55 years of marriage they still act like they are newlyweds.

Thank you Mom & Pop for setting the example of how true everlasting love should be.  You are truly and inspiration.  May you have many more years of love and happiness to come.
