40 Years

Today is my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. That’s crazy to think about, right? I am pretty dumbfounded by it. I mean, it’s one thing to celebrate your grandparents’ wedding anniversary in the x0-th year, but I find that many of my friends, colleagues and other peers don’t have their original, intact parents still married to each other. 40 years! Whew.

To celebrate, my sister and I put together a little fun surprise for them. I can’t take credit for the idea, as it was found on Pinterest. But we did put a little spin on it to make it more like us. We sent a note and self addressed and stamped postcard to 40 friends and family that have known Mom and Dad throughout their marriage. The idea is to send snippets of memories through the mail that my parents will collect into an album we’re giving as their anniversary present. Each postcard is numbered for every year they’ve been married. They’ve become – my father, especially – very nostalgic, so I think they’re going to love receiving memories for the next several weeks.

My parents are pretty great. They deserve another 40 wonderful years together!
