43 years of Marriage

Yesterday was my parent's 43rd wedding anniversary. They were married back in 1968. Boy how times have changed. Looking at their wedding photos they both look cautiously happy and a little nervous. At only 19 they were getting married, expecting their first child and shortly after their wedding my Dad was drafted to Vietnam. I couldn't imagine dealing with all of that at my ripe old age of 30, yet alone at 19. But lucky for them (and my sisters and me!) everything worked out the way it was supposed to. They've had an amazing and solid marriage and I'm thankful to have them as my parents.

I Think You're Beautiful!

Nearly 10 years ago, Patrick bought me Mirror, Mirror by Joop Steenkamer, Jr. for Valentine's Day. It is one of the loveliest and most thoughtful presents I've ever received. Although Patrick didn't write these sweet and over complimentary words, I knew he felt them. Today we have the mirror hanging in our Lyla Belle's room. This is one of those presents that every time you see it, you feel special. It's a simple piece, with such an overwhelming and heartfelt message.
