50 Years of Marriage

Now that is something to celebrate! And so we did, this summer in Idaho when the family was able to gather, but today, September 29, 2012, is the actual anniversary day.

Mom and Dad's wedding in New York City

The early years: my parents, the original hipsters. Dad smoked a pipe, too. And, isn't my mom beautiful?

"Like everything which is not the involuntary result of fleeting emotion but the creation of time and will, any marriage, happy or unhappy, is infinitely more interesting than any romance, however passionate." ~ W.H. Auden

Happy Golden Anniversary Mom and Dad. Thank you for giving your family the gift of a committed, loving, and interesting union.

Your parents are absolutely every one of those pictures. The top picture, though? Kristen looks a lot like your dad, doesn't she? And your mom really is stunning!

The hipster picture is like a picture out of Life magazine. Really perfect.

Happy Anniversary to your folks - may they have many more years of joy together.
