Sapphire Wedding Anniversary.



Today, my parents celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary, also called Sapphire Wedding Anniversary.

My parents are by far the most interesting people I know. They live their life in a way that constantly leaves me in awe. Having changed it around more times that I can possibly count, they have continuously managed to maintain their optimism, their integrity and their joie de vivre.
And through it all, they have retained their love for each other and their unconditional love for us, their children.
Additionally, they have kept themselves impressively young, both mentally and physically as well.

Happy Anniversary mom and dad, you are the best!

What a beautiful tribute! Their passion for life was certainly passed on to you...
The old photo is beautiful. Your mom's coat is fantastic! They are a gorgeous couple now!
This is inspirational! I hope to have a Sapphire wedding anniversary someday! (I almost made it to the silver last time...missed it by a year!)

I *hope* your parents read your blog and can see what you have written about their enduring marriage.
They are still so youthful in appearance and I want to wish them many happy, healthy years ahead..

Aw! Look at your cute little parents! They look great! A girl at my office is getting ready to give her mom and dad a 50th anniversary party. I said I didn't think that if you added both my parent's 5 marriages between them together, it would even reach 25 years. And, it didn't. It was only 23 years. There's no wonder why I have problems with commitment when you look at it like that! Eek! ;)

Protege said...

=Mel,
thank you so much; my parents are truly an inspiration.;)

You know, I was thinking about the fact, that I might never celebrate 45 years anniversary, maybe not even 25 or 10.;)
So, we all have thoughts in that direction at times.;))
