Happy 40th Anniversary to my parents!


Senior Prom 1967

I would TOTALLY wear any of the clothes that my mom has on in these pictures if she still had them today (and if I were a size zero!)

They have been celebrating this week with a trip to Maine.

They spent the first few days driving along the coast and shopping in the rain, but yesterday,

true to form,

Daddy talked Mama into climbing Mount Katahdin with him.  It’s the highest mountain in Maine.

I received the following text message from Mama late in the day yesterday:

Took 12 hours to climb and come down.

It was the hardest thing I have ever done.

Very steep, tons of boulder fields and cold and windy.

I think we are glad we did it but it may be my last climb.

Sound familiar?

I am super proud of her!

And of both of them for hanging on tight to one another for all these years.

They are an inspiration to me and to so many others!

Love you both!!
