My parents got hitched 30 years ago today (after dating for seven years)! My sisters and I couldn't be happier to have gotten stuck with this dynamic duo. Looking through old photos made us realize what a full life these crazy kids have led.
They are honestly more in love than ever. In writing, they say that if something reads smoothly, it's because there's been a lot of hard work put in behind the scenes. Their incredible relationship is then a testament, not to luck, but to their dedication in building a beautiful life together. They've never stopped having fun and I don't think they ever will. We're just lucky they brought us along for the ride!
We put together a video montage to commemorate the past three decades...
We also gave them a family tree (complete with our own crest) that my insanely talented graphic designer friend, Lexi McKenna, helped us create. If you look at my Google history right now it is all: Ancestry.com & Obituaries. Rather morbid but fascinating delving into our roots (apparently we're decedents of Swedish royalty?! Thanks Augustus Johnson, née Johansson).
Side note: One of our great-great grandfathers was named Levi Pratt...pretty badass name for the 1800s. Kudos to our family members for digging deep into old records for us as well! It was truly a labour of love.
