This is the only picture I got to commemorate my mom and dad's 50th wedding anniversary. Bad daughter. Mom and dad came down to my sister's house the day before I met Rick Springfield. You may remember that day? You may remember everyone agreed to have their anniversary dinner a day late to accommodate my need to see RS? So anyway, that Saturday-the day after their real anniversary we got to go to a very nice restaurant where Cheryl and Alan live to finally celebrate a marriage that has lasted for half a century. That is crazy talk. They have been such good role models to me about what a good marriage looks like. I never once worried when I was growing up that my parents weren't going to stay married. Well, I worried one time. It was the only time I ever heard them argue with each other. But when I asked them if they were going to get divorced they explained that you can argue with your spouse and still love them and not toss in the towel on a perfectly good marriage. So here's to mom and dad-we all love you so much and hope you have many more years to love, like and even irritate each other on occasion!
