Celebrate love

Everyone is celebrating their anniversaries, or so it seems.

Facebook is filled with love.

‘Tis the season, I guess.

I can’t help but think back to my own wedding in February of 1996.

Hard to believe we were married for almost 10 years.

It felt impressive back then to have been married that long.

However, it doesn’t seem that amazing now compared to people who are hitting 15 or 20 years together.

My parents hit 50 years of marriage this past week.

I know.

That’s pretty major!

They celebrated with a pool party for the Fourth of July instead of hosting a socially distant anniversary party.

Truth be told, my mother didn’t want to celebrate it at all.

Let’s just say that marital bliss can be elusive when you’re living in a house with a 90 year old blind husband.

As for my own marital aspirations, more than anything, I’d really like to settle down with someone, shack up and live out our golden years together.

But since that’s not happening, for better or for worse, I think I’ll just have to be satisfied taking care of myself.

So here’s to the season of love and anniversaries.

May we all find reasons to celebrate our loved ones this summer and always.
