But really I am posting today because in my world 09-09 has always had meaning, even when it wasn't tripled. Today is my parent's anniversary. They've been married for 37 years today despite some early surprises (the wedding was supposed to be the following April, but then I was born in January) and bumps in the road. I've heard my parents fight and watched them slow dance, and generally discovered in their example that relationships take communication and care but that they are worth it.
I am grateful to be their daughter.
