Happy 40th Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

I am so proud to say that Mom and Dad celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on Saturday!  They were just "babies" when they got married at 18 and 20 back in 1973.  Aren't they adorable? 

The lovebirds made a little road trip to Colorado and got married over President's Day weekend during their undergrad years.  40 years, 6 kids, and an ever-growing number of grandbabies later, their love is still growing strong.  

Thank you, Mom and Dad, for showing us through your example that marriage is a sacrament, a lifelong commitment, and a daily decision to die to self in sacrifice of your spouse and family.  Cheers to you and many, many more years of marriage!
