All because of a hamburger...


Today...my parents celebrate 43 years of marriage.

My mom was 16 when she met my dad at a hamburger shop with his buddy. It started there. After highschool, they got married. Immediately they moved to San Diego b/c my dad was on a ship in the Vietnam War.

From military...came moving...came starting a {business}...buying homes...raising a child...ups and downs of {life}....good times and bad times....

They had their {own} story but in many ways similar to most BUT in their {Chapters} was an underlying commitment to one another....when quarrels pushed them apart-they always had good sense to take the first step back.

They made a promise and have given a life time to fulfill it-

On my song list....is their song....it fits them perfectly because they are {still} the one in each other's eyes.

Happy Anniversary, mom and dad....
