Here is a little special edition of peace and love as a special day is upon us and because of these two, my life is truly blessed and I have much to be thankful for. When I was little, and my younger sisters and I would see my parents kiss, we would run away and tell them in whiny little voices (with very thick midwestern accents, mind you, "quit having marriage"!!!). I remember being so grossed out at the sight of two grown people kissing. My, how age changes you, for I am much wiser now and I realize that having two lovie dovie parents is very far from a bad thing.
Simply stated, my parents are two of the most incredible people I know. 28 years ago today, they kissed and said "I do". 28 years of unconditional love that have included thousands of hugs, constant laughs, 3 houses, Nina, Andi, Natalie, a migration from Hockeytown to the Queen City, beach vacations, birthday parties, dance recitals, school plays, late night talks, front porch conversations, dancing in the kitchen, amazing vacation to the motherland (Italy), and good food. It is always all about the food, after all. (my parents can work some magic in the kitchen...why do you think I love food so much?!)
I love you Mom & Dad!! Happy Anniversary!!!
