Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

It was 1975 and my mom was a senior at Florida State University. One of my mom's roommates in the dorm was about to receive a visit from her cousin, Johnny, driving from the small one-light town of Campbellton, Florida. I don't think my mom was quite aware how this simple visit would turn into her destiny. When my dad walked through the dorm doors, my mom thought, "That is the man I'm going to marry, he just doesn't know it yet."

Soon, my dad's visits to Florida State were no longer for his cousin, but now for my mom, and over the course of my mom's remaining time in school, they dated around the campus and fell in love. Nine months later, mom graduated from school and they began their lives together 32 years ago today.

And what an adventure it has been. I came along five years later to join their love story. It hasn't always been an easy journey, with many ups and downs, but they have been the greatest example of my mom's favorite quote, "Whatever the question, love is the answer." It's been an honor to witness their love through the good times, the bad times, but yet through it all, to watch how true love truly endures.

Happy Anniversary mom and dad! You two are my heroes and my best friends. "Where there is a Williams, there is a way!"

How cute is their wedding photo? Wedding photography suuuuuuure has come a long way! :-)



And here's a recent photo I took of them all mushy gushy earlier this year.


Also, if you are looking for a great source daily inspiration, my mom is the true writer in the family and has an awesome blog too! I'd love for you to check it out and leave her some love!

As always, your parents are precious! I had never heard the story of how they met! I was just driving through Campbellton last week, and when a friend called and asked where I was, I told her... and she had no idea what I was talking about. :shrug:
