anniversary wishes

today is my parent's thirty-fourth wedding anniversary 
- september 5, 1981-

dear mom and dad,
thank you for all the special, 
little things you do,
for all of the words that sometimes go unspoken
for all of the times you both have been there to stop and listen 
for all of the support and encouragement throughout the years
for teaching me the meaning of compassion between two people 
for sharing in triumphs and tears
i hope you know how grateful i am for you both
and how each day you continue to mean more and more to me. 
thank you. 
i love you both - so much. 
people tell me all the time at home and i know it's true-
i won the parent lottery.
{ps: thank you for a fun, simple childhood in the country- would not trade it for anything.}
enjoy your anniversary and i can't wait to celebrate with you both tomorrow!

in case you missed yesterday's post: book love + a giveaway!! 

ps: my house smells like hazelnut coffee, cinnamon rolls in the oven, and pumpkin {a candle} - pure bliss. also, so excited for my college roommate {and faithful blog reader!} to come visit today- safe travels from minnesota, meme and matt!
