Still the One...

This past weekend my parents celebrated 33 years of marriage! I love my parents more than anything in this world and love their marriage just as much. I am the person I am today because of them and their marriage. I wanted to help celebrate their amazing relationship with several lovely pictures of them. (and their hair and clothes from over the years) :

But in all seriousness to put in to words the way that I feel about my parents...well I just don't know that I could ever come close to doing their marriage justice...to put into words in a way that they deserve, in a way that captures the magic and romance that is their marriage. Of course to say that their entire relationship has been rainbows and bunnies would be a big old fat lie...but that is why I think I am so lucky. The fact that my parents somehow found a balance for their children to learn that marriage is a wonderful thing with amazing rewards...but that it is also a lot of work...that lesson is priceless. And they did it all in a way that we never felt real tension...even if they did. We lead an amazing childhood filled with happy memories and an even more amazing adulthood with parents that love each other and us more than anything in this world and that is the best feeling I could never truly describe! There are many songs that I would say describe this amazing relationship but one sticks out more in my mind because both of my parents seem to light up when they hear it and would say it really describes them at this point in their lives. It is the song "Still the One" by Orleans and some of the lyrics read like this:

You're still the one that makes me laugh

Still the one that's my better half

We're still having fun, and you're still the one.

You're still the one that makes me strong

Still the one I want to take along

We're still having fun, and you're still the one.
I love you both more than these words could ever really describe and I am so happy that two such amazing people found each other and had the opportunity to create the life that you have created...and I am even more blessed that I get to be apart of your magic. Thank you and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!
