happy 41 years of marriage to the best two people in my life. Shoutout to my grandparents for living on the same block so my parents could meet at an ice cream truck as kids. I've never met another couple who share a bond like them…it also helps she talks a lot and he doesn't. I asked my Dad once what was the secret, "let it go", there are no grudges in a happy marriage. My mother is also the funniest human being on the planet so I'm sure that helps. Cheers to endless unconditional love ❤️
