my sweet mommy and daddy

I would like to dedicate this post to my parents. Today is their 30th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! How amazing is that? 30 years of loving each other, loving us, and most important loving God. They have painted the PERFECT picture of what I want my marriage to be like. They love Jesus first and foremost, which allows them to love each other more everyday and love us girls with everything they have. They are such amazing role models and I look up to them so much! They have sacrificed SOOO much for us, which I am so grateful for. They have always supported us no matter what and have never stopped loving us, no matter how many mistakes we make. They have showed us how to love God and how to love others unconditionally. I am so thankful for them and so amazed by how much they love each other.

A little background on my parents - they met in high school and were friends but didn't date. Apparently my dad was quite the "lady's man". :) Anyways, my mom was a year older than my dad and when she went off to Auburn they started dating sometime...not sure exactly when! They got married on August 30, 1980 at Huffman Baptist Church after mom graduated from college and dad still had 2 years (thanks christen!!!) left. Mom was a newlywed to a college baseball player (bless her heart!). 30 years later they have 4 daughters, 2 grandchildren & 1 on the way!!!

I will leave you with a picture of my sweet parents
Thank you mom and dad for showing me how to love God and love someone else unconditionally. Yall are amazing parents!!!!!!
