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.
