33 years and going strong

GrandparentsToday is my parents 33rd wedding anniversary.  How amazing is that?  I’m tickled to realize that my parents are celebrating their 33rd while Jonah and I are about to celebrate our 3rd.  It’s exciting to imagine where Jonah and I will be in another 30 years, hopefully on a mountain somewhere or drinking a tasty beer, ummmmm beer.

When you’re younger, your family is your parents and siblings.  You learn from each other, grow together, and create friendships that can last a lifetime.  Sharing a history with someone is incredible.  My parents, siblings, and I have adventured together for years and created lifelong memories.  Play your cards right and you can have these amazing friendships with people you’ve shared your childhood with that get richer as years go on.  Lucky for me, all of mine are still intact or at least I hope so!

My parents have built such an amazing legacy in their 55 years on this earth.  Four children who love and care about each other; all who are finding their own ways in this world.  Last October they also became grandparents and the legacy continues.

Last week Harper and I got to spend the weekend with them in Anchorage.  We had a wonderful time eating, drinking (beer for the 21+, water for the Harps), and laughing.  It’s a wonderful thing to see the people who raised you interact with the person you’re trying to figure how to raise yourself.

 

Cheers to the happy couple!  Enjoy your day!
