11 months from today I will be Mrs. Govednik!

Today is my parents’ 35th wedding anniversary.

They have the kind of marriage I have always wanted.

They are best friends. They truly enjoy each other’s company. They believe in each other’s hopes and dreams.

They have built a life filled with love for each other and their family.

(Lucky them and lucky us.)

It is fitting that I will marry Brian 11 months from today, my parents’ anniversary, because I plan to use their marriage as our marriage blueprint.

Yes, 11 months from today we will be husband and wife.

And I hope that on July 14, 2046 (wow!) we are celebrating 35 years together with as much love and happiness as my parents are today.

Thank you, Mom and Dad, for your love and inspiration.

  1. I cannot think of two better people to model your marriage after. I only know your family via the worldwide web, but I feel like I have known you forever. You are definitely my kind of people. By the way, my husband and I will be married 38 years on September 8th.

  2. Thanks Janie for those beautiful words…I’m looking forward to celebrating with you and Brian in 11 months! Love Dad

  3. Janie… Your wedding to Brian on the horizon is like the sun shining for the next 11 months! You and Brian are like 2 peas in a pod… a very LONG and HAPPY pod! Love you both! Mom xoxox!
