It's Almost Time to Retire

Saturday I took a trip to my mom and dads’ to deliver some flooring, paint, etc. for their bathroom remodel. 

This is how good a daughter I am – I walked in the house, saw Mom dressed up and thought, “Hmm.” Then I realized it was July 10th, their anniversary. So I told Dad I brought him presents for his anniversary. He’s a smart man and didn’t buy it. But he chuckled and smiled at me anyway.

This is their 62nd anniversary. Can you imagine being married to your husband or wife for 62 years?! Me neither. Dad said that at 65 they can retire. Mom laughed and scolded him with, “Marriage is a lifelong commitment!”

I think marriage is hard work whether you’ve been married 19 years like my husband and me, or 62 like my parents!


  1. It is amazing isn't it! Marriage is such an investment... but it is totally worth it :)

  2. I love old wedding portraits like this! Great post.
