The Parents Hit 44 Years

Saturday was my parents 44th wedding anniversary. I wish'd we could have been there to celebrate with them but they had to settle on a card and a gift certificate I'd given them to a yummy restaraunt they love. 44 years..Wow..My mom and dad have gone through a lot together but they always got through it. Total role models for my brother and me. My cousin told my mom "Wow Tia, you and Jack are a rare breed. You just don't see couples last as long as you guys do." I totally agree. Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! Your (adopted) son and I love you!

Wow 44 years! That is awesome. You don't hear that very often any more.
Hey I need to get a hold of you and I don't think I have your email address or phone number. So if you could email me your number at I need to talk to you.

robin, 44 years is a very long time and very impressive. but, your parents totally don't look old enough to have been married for so long!!! maybe staying young is the key:)

Mine just had their woulda-been 51st anniversary. My dad passed away just before it.

For their 50th - we had a family vacation in Palm Springs. It was wonderful and the video and pictures are just priceless.

I can't even imagine living to 50, much less living to 50 years as a wife (sarcasm, here...I am a joker when faced with adversity, sorry)

COngrats to your mom and dad and family.

Wow...that's an accomplishment AND they still look so in love, VERY INSPIRING!

Robin, thank you so much for all your comments and encouragement!

I'm married. I have 3 kids. I have a big nose. Now go on and catch up.

Keep it nice or I'll post your email and make fun of you.
