love it.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

together forever.

today was the day, twenty-eight years ago, on a rainless, cold february day that perry and donna were wed... they met at dairyqueen... my dad, the hot shot with a motorcycle, a band and a killer mustache couldn't get my mom, the pretty cheerleader, out of his head and pursued her. knowing always, she was the one. a few years later they were engaged on a ferris wheel at the fair.

happy anniversary mom and dad!

to celebrate, my dad whisked my mom off to whistler last weekend... (their favorite getaway) and bought her tulips (her favorite flower) .. and they went out to Presto Cucina's (their favorite Italian restaurant) ... i love my parents so dearly and am beyond blessed that they have been married thus far. they are true examples of unconditional love, commitment and selflessness - - - despite all their different qualities, they have made their marriage work and their love last... they often go on "dates"... they both are passionate about and eager to renovate and redecorate our lovely home (all the time!) they are both hardworking and full of love and support for us kids. God could have placed me in any family, with any parents in the entire world, but he chose this one especially for me and i am forever thankful and overjoyed that he did. my life would not be the same, nor would it be so beautiful without them... they bring so much wisdom and advice and love and sacrifice and joy and laughter and silliness to my life! (just ask my dad to make his lizard face and my mom to show off her dance moves and the howling will commence!) - they really are the BEST parents a girl could ever hope for... i hope for a love like theirs one day.

i have heaps and heaps of admiration and an overwhelming love for you two.

i'm so glad you fell in love.

  1. Ohhh this is beautiful, Karli. It's so wonderful to see love stories like these displayed, and I LOVED actually getting to meet your parents and see how wonderful they are first-hand. :] I'm so glad they fell in love, too, so that my life could be blessed by YOU!
