So I'm at my family's house this weekend celebrating the 4th of July with fireworks, picnics, s'mores, sparklers, barbecues, and cousins; the whole nine yards. I'm also helping my mom sort through all of the junk in our house to get ready for the annual July neighborhood yard sale. While cleaning stuff out of the basement we found a box of paperwork dating back to the early 80s, and nestled in this box was the forty-dollar check that my dad wrote to the minister who married them in July of '84...the memo line says Thanks much! And there's the check for the ring. Aww! Mom was so excited.
