#1,696 40th Anniversary.
by Erin Napier
Tomorrow, my mama and daddy will have been married for 40 years. 40 years! That’s 12 years longer than I’ve existed. 3 years longer than my brother has. She was 19 and he was 21 years old in 1974.
Truly, just babies. Tonight Ben and I went over to cook dinner for them to celebrate.
Afterward mama got out the photo album of their honeymoon and their first year of marriage. I love how easily I can see my own face in hers.
Daddy. A TANK TOP? Seriously?
