Happy Anniversary to the people who made me!

My parents have been married 36 years today. One year and 21 days later I was born and greeted my brother who had turned 6 only 3 days prior to my birth. They have always been a terrific example of how a marriage should work, especially in their honesty with how things can be rough sometimes- I grew up knowing that marriage takes work, but the love, laughter and longevity shared by committed partners (and a healthy sex life!) makes the scary parts of life feel more like a thrilling ride and the fun parts so much more enjoyable, because they are shared with someone you can let loose and be your truest self with. I remember right after Shawn and I eloped just over 10 years ago they told us the secret to their long marriage- always put the other first. This isn't so easy to do, but remembering to try is the important part.

April is a busy month for my family. And now- yet another April occasion, my mother-in-law's birthday on the 18th, has fascinated Grace because she just discovered that the last digit of Bernie's and my age is the same as Grace's age. She just turned 5, I'll be 35 and Grandma Bernie 55- neat, huh? My mom is very into numerology and I think Grace is following in her footsteps.

Best wishes to the best parents I ever had!!
