Golden Anniversary

Today is my parents' fiftieth wedding anniversary. Their Golden Day! It has been such a joy to spend the day with them, reminiscing and laughing ... Tomorrow my brother and I are hosting a dinner for them, and the guests will be the majority of the people who were in their wedding party. Not a big group, but it should be a fun one.

They got married in Minneapolis; they were just 19 & 20 years old. They honeymooned in Duluth - their love affair with the North Shore has always been there - but came home a couple of days early because my mom was homesick!

They moved 16 times, lived in 6 states and 3 countries, owned 10 houses and built 2 (plus a cabin), and have travelled to 43 countries ... so far! Their lives together have been filled with love and a lot of laughter.

Congratulations, Mom and Dad!
