This was a little photo shoot that I did last November and it was posted on my temporary blog…It was kinda special and I didn’t want to lose it, so with the amazing power of cut and paste technology (**two fist pumps**) here it is for your viewing pleasure…
Happy Wedding Anniversary to my parents! Twenty seven years ago they decided to become MR. & MRS. and started a life together. A little later than some, they got married at 27 and 28 years old respectively and it worked for them. They have always told my brothers and I to follow the Lord’s plan for each of our lives, to seek Him first and find out who we are as individuals before we get married. I am so blessed to have them as my parents. They have each worked so hard and made many sacrifices for our family…they’ve been chauffeurs, boo-boo fixers, coaches, short-order cooks, teachers, cheerleaders, stay-up-with-a-sick-kid-all-nighters and every other oh so glamourous thing that comes with being a parent –of four! They are the kind of parents who never missed a game, always made time for family dinners and were really present in my childhood. And that is something I wouldn’t trade for all the tea in China.
The thing I admire most about my parents is when they made the choice to homeschool my older brother and I. It wasn’t a common thing to do, they didn’t have support, and everyone told them they couldn’t, yet they did it anyway. They heard it from the Lord and obeyed. That’s been a huge part of my upbringing, never conforming. Having the freedom and encouragement instilled as a child to be a unique individual, that is a total gift. Not every kid has that. So thanks Mom and Dad…y’all rock!
We recently did a little photo shoot to celebrate their upcoming anniversary…CHEERS TO 27 YEARS!
Dad is a hoot, and Mom has a great laugh. They go together like peas and carrots.
the moon was just starting to come out and my Dad says "get a picture of the moon between us!"
Anniversary Shoots are the best idea since peanut butter and chocolate! Why document the wedding day then stop there. 27 years of lovin’ is like a wedding day on steroids.
