Happy 39th Anniversary to my mom and dad!! I know it's not been easy for them, many ups and downs. But they make it work no matter what!

They are the kind of parents that I could talk to about almost anything. They do what they can to help. This is the way i want to parent! I want my kids to be able to talk to me about everything and If I can help I want to be there.
