Seasons of love

525,600 minutes in a year. That means as of tomorrow, my grandparents will have been married for 34,187,040 minutes (if I accounted for the leap years correctly).

To save you from having whip out your calculators or engage in mental math, that is 65 years.



13 children. More than 30 grandchildren (I've lost count). Who knows how many great-grandchildren, but probably more than 2 dozen.

I asked them at their celebration last night what the secret to 65 years of marriage is. My grandpa said "Lots of love." My grandma said "I fed him lots of good food."

I'm pretty sure both responses are resounding truth.

Wow. I believe my great-grandparents were married 67 years when he passed away. She lived to see 2 of her great-great grandchildren, including my oldest son. Treasure them and take lots of pictures.

So cute. Sadly, all my grandparents have passed.
