I am thankful that, on this day in 1964, my parents married. Their marriage created a legacy of love & faith, building a life together and for our family. My mother described her wedding day as perfect, the quintessential ideal autumn weather that every bride deserves. When I married Kegan on a day of perfect weather, I truly believe that was a gift from my mother, who wanted me to have a wedding day like hers. As much as I think about the importance of love on my own anniversary I think of it on theirs, and I know this is a day my dad and my siblings spend thinking of our mother, missing her, and so grateful for the love she and my father shared.
