the look of lifelong love

my grandparents celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary last month.

we missed the party, but luckily my mom hired our much beloved wedding photographer, kirstin, to capture the big event. seeing pictures of all my family gathered in the kitchen and spread out on couches and laughing and hugging and celebrating just makes me so happy and fuzzy and warm.

i feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family.

and i feel so blessed, in particular, to have such wonderful grandparents. they are graceful and kind, tolerant and forgiving, universally loved and admired, funny, insightful and inspired. they have supported all of us as we've gone to college, served missions, gotten married, had babies, rejoiced in triumph and struggled hard against trials.

they love good food, good music and, most of all, the good company of family. i am so glad to be a part of their family, and i only hope i am so lucky, sixty years from now, to be surrounded by half as wonderful a legacy as they have created.

hey AWD, are you in? (hope you're up for living into our mid-90s!)
