I don't know that I've ever posted a picture of my in-laws. I thought I'd share this one because it came out so nice. My in-laws have been married nearly 52 years. We actually both come from families with marriage longevity. My parents were married 35 years before my mom died. My one set of grandparents 50 odd years and my other 35 before my grandpa died (they had both been widowed with children when they married). Both of DH's grandparents were married over 50 yrs. and my in-laws 52 so far. The fact that we are going on 25 was never unexpected. It never occurred to me that we'd do anything but remain married. We've had our moments of total love and devotion..ahem...but neither one of us has ever even suggested throwing in the towel. It just never occurred to me that I'd be anywhere else.
I wish I'd have taken a good picture of my dad while I was visiting, but I didn't. My dad is NOT photogenic so the very best picture I have of him is from Mrs. S's wedding.
I just love my family. For all their quirks, foibles, "pita"ness, and just plain weirdness, I wouldn't trade them for anything. Why so mushy? Holidays of reflection always remind me of what a lucky, lucky woman I am. From my husband, his family, my family and our family, I am a very lucky woman.
