I love my parents and am always thankful for them. I have the best ones ever. Period. You should be jealous. But seriously, they’ve always been very supportive and great role models for everything from relationships to how to deal with crappy situations to good work ethic. They’re awesome and that’s that. But today what I’m most grateful for is that I can pay them back in little ways every now and then for their awesomeness.
They’re spending this weekend at a nice little bed & breakfast in Wilmington. They helped us out so much with our back yard, making it beautiful and accommodating for our wedding. They spent countless weekends months before October 1st driving two and a half hours from their house to ours (and then back!) so they could help us spread mulch, trim limbs and branches, build steps, move stuff, and plant flowers. So, to say thank you, we paid for them to have a nice little weekend away all to themselves. They stopped by this afternoon for lunch to break up their trip a bit and it’s always so nice to get to see them. Even if it’s only for a few hours. I forgot to take a photo for the blog while they were here, so I’ll leave you with the one we took while on vacation together this summer in D.C.
So thanks, Mom and Dad. I love you and am forever grateful to have you in my life!
