49 Years Ago Today!

49 years ago today my parents said "I do."

49 years ago today my parents began a life together.

And I am happy to report that 49 years later they are still together.

Next year, on their 50th anniversary my sisters and I will throw a big 50th anniversary party for them.

I can't believe my parents have been married for 49 years.

I've been married 26 years and I think THAT'S a long time.

So congratulations to my parents on their 49th anniversary.  I love you both very, very much. 


  1. Isn't it crazy to think they've been together long than they were apart!

    Congrats to them! I think the younger generation (ie mine and younger and maybe just above mine) can take some guidance from the older generations who make/made it work!

  2. Congratulations to your parents! You will have a ball next year planning and celebrating.

    I love your new picture at the top of your blog!

    I will honk as we go through Eldon tomorrow. We are going to an auction at Excelsior!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Yes! A congratulations to your folks. It's always inspiring and encouraging to hear tales like this one.

  4. Congratulations to them! My parents are 50 years married this Autumn. What a blessing we have to be in families that stayed together :)
