This is us.
The other day I ran across a photo of my mom and dad on their 40th anniversary. I can't find it now (of course!) but this one is close. I looked and looked at that picture, thinking "This is us now." We will celebrate 41 years tomorrow. It's so weird to remember how I thought of them then, and that now it's us. I didn't think of them as elderly, but, you know, they were grandparents and had been married 40 years. I didn't even conceive of becoming that. And now, here we are. Weird, but wonderful, too.
