hi friends! i've been out of the loop for the past week and it has been heaven. my family and i took a mini vacation to palm springs. we just got back into town yesterday and now my parents are coming for a visit today! i'm so excited to see them! they are all i have, no brothers or sisters. i'm an only child and i haven't seen my mom and dad since april. i miss them so much. i hate that we all get so busy that we don't visit each other more. last time i was at their house i went through a bunch of old family photo albums and came across this picture. i love it. it was taken around 1975 according to my mom. my mom looks so smitten with my dad i can't stand it. he kind of looks smitten with her too. he was an adventurous surfer/skater and she was a shy lover of music. they were really young when they got married and really young when they had me. they have happily managed to beat the odds and celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary this year. i love the life that they gave me when i was growing up. their purpose in life was to make sure mine was great and i don't mean with material objects. i hope you have a fabulous weekend friends! i will be soaking up as much time with my parents as i can.
