41 Years of Livin' and Lovin'

Today was BIG y'all!
 My parents celebrated their 41st anniversary!
Just to think... this is where it all started.  Just a couple a kids attending dances in what seems to be matching denim dance attire.
#TheyWereTheOldSchoolJustinAndBritney
#MyParentsWereSoAheadOfTheirTime #WithFashion
Too bad JT and Britney did not survive the matching denim stage like Mike and Amy!
Lets see, 41 years... let us take a stroll down memory lane
These two, they have been together since high school (whhhhhaaaa, high school).  Think about it, if you woulda married your high school love.....  Hummmmmmm.  Okay, that is over!
 Yes, tens... those are cut off jorts (jorts= jean shorts into one word, I love that on this blog we can learn new lingo together), and that hair!


After years together, many dates, late nights sitting on my MamMaw and PapPaw's couch, they decided to marry.  Talk about livin' on love... my dad worked at a grocery store while momma taught piano out of their house.  Then the children....
I came along.....
 shortly after..... Jason
Then they thought... what is one more... sweet baby Richard
It is safe to say that these three learned much about family from our parents.  We love each other fiercely and are each others best friends.  Our parents are amazing role models who showed love, kindness, patience (sooooo much patience, those Curry 3 were tough in the teen years), and commitment to each other (no matter what)!
You would think that with those 2 kids... having these 3 kids..... that we woulda worn them down!
(Insert ha ha emoji face and super uncomfortable emoji face when they told us they could still have babies..... #IKnow)
Then comes Katie.... the 4th.  Possibly the favorite #JustSayin
#SheIsAllOfOurFavorites
After all of these years, our family has grown by a manfriend.... my Aron (yes, tens.... he has a name)
and then the babies....

Who knew that so much love would come from these two.  I am blessed to have a front row seat, and I am glad to be a part of the years to come.
































Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!

Saying good-bye (insert saddest emoji face)

Tens... the drive home from the beach is the pits!
*Note to self... get a super high payin' job where I can just live on the beach!  (JK, my boss might be reading this)!
We woke up super early (4AM)!  Bah, who even does that??
At least I will have much to reflect on for the 12 hour car ride!




















We had such a fun time!  Who is going with us next year??  Thankful for my parents who make this trip possible for us each year!  It is so much planning and making sure we all get to where we need to be so we can be together.  Dad and Mom... you are the best (I am pretty sure they are not ones of the tens)!
What do you do for vacation?  You and your spouse?  You and your friends?  Do you do BIG family trips?  Maybe we will see ya at the beach next year!!
