Just take a few minutes and soak in these pictures. My parent's 50th anniversary surprise party. I can't believe we pulled off this thing. I can't fathom that no one blew it or my lies, upon lies, upon lies, were not discovered.
When you are a military family, you pick up friends from lots of places and then watch them move on. The beauty of my parents is the ability they have to maintain relationships. I mean, 45 years of friendships. That, too, is a legacy. This weekend- from this Saturday morning brunch to the end of Sunday afternoon, was a perfect representation of hard work, grace, perserverence, and laughter.
What a great celebration, of two great people, and 50 great years, with their great friends. I am so... grateful.
