84 er meget!!.... 84 is a lot!!

I går fejrede mine svigerforældre deres 49. bryllupsdag! Jeg synes at det er UTROLIG FORBLØFFENDE. Sådan et eksempel at de har lavet til deres børn og børnebørn! Jeg har også tænkt på mine forældre og huskede at de fejrede deres 35. bryllupsdag i januar. Og selv om jeg hader matematik, talte jeg og indset at sammen---mine forældre og mine svigerforældre har fireogfirs år af ægteskab.... WAUW!!!!! Jeg håber at Mads og jeg er heldig nok at have et ægteskab så stærk som vores forældre. Alle fire af dem har lavet et rigtigt godt eksempel til os!

Yesterday my inlaws celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary! I think that is absolutely AMAZING! Such an example that they have set for their children and grandchildren! I have also thought about my own parents and remembered that they celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary this past January. And although I hate math, I counted and have realized that together--my parents and inlaws have eighty-four years of marriage.... WOW!!!! I hope that Mads and I are lucky enough to have a marriage as strong as that of our parents. All four of them have set a great example for us!

It's almost spooky how much their living room looks like my parents-in-law's living room - the furniture, the ornaments, the paintings. Just Danes of a certain generation I suppose.

Kelli, you have me hooked on you blog page. It is the first thing I check every morning before I even go to my e-mail. This picture of your parents and Md's parents should be a treasure to you and Mads.

Aww.. lovely! So sweet and inspiring! My own parents celebrated 50 years together last year!

That is so sweet ! You are so fortunate to have such a strong family. Marco and I have been together since 1987, that's 22 years! Time goes by so fast sometimes and so slowly other times (like now when I'm at work, ha ha!)

In this day and age yes, it's extremely impressive that they are still going strong- so many give up on marriage too easily when things get tough. You've both had great role models so I'm sure you and Mads are heading for a lifetime together. ;-))
P.S. Great photo of both couples..can see where you and Mads get your great looks!!

I'm sure you & Mads will have a long, wonderful life together. I hope that you continue to enjoy each other as much as Dad & I do after all these years.
