SATURDAY SAYINGS: AN ANNIVERSARY WISH AND LIFE QUOTES


Happy Saturday, Blogland!

Today, September 1st, is my parents 39th wedding anniversary!!!

I wanted to let them know how much I love them, admire them and feel lucky to have been surrounded by the bond they share with each other and the genuine example they led growing up! It allowed me to see, first hand, that true love exists, that marriage is important and cannot only be lasting, but create happiness and love that gets stronger each and every day!

In fact, growing up, I don't think I fully realized that the family I had was so unique, special, and in many ways, rare in today's world. I never heard my parents raise their voices at one another, we always had dinner together as a family each night at the kitchen table, and we were raised to know the importance of respect, manners and helping one another, including those around us.

To this day, they still hold hands walking down the streets, whether anyone is watching or not, and they know what each other is thinking and feeling even if they aren't in the same room, which is so lovely.

I owe a lot of who I am today to them. All thanks to their guidance, support and unconditional love!
And now, since it is Saturday, I wanted to put together some life quotes for all you to get you through the weekend and into Labor Day! :)

Enjoy...

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a Happy Labor Day ahead!!! I'll be back on Monday with a review on some fun jewelry from the Real Housewives!
