Celebrating 30 Years!!!

Over the weekend my parents made the long trip here (14+ hours) to Memphis from TX! I haven't seen them since January so of course I was SO excited! I still can't believe they have lived away from us for over a year now. It hasn't been easy since I am so incredibly close to my parents, but when we are able to get together, we have the best time.

They came home since it was the holiday weekend and we had planned on all just being together and having great fun and family time. They celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary last month and since my brother and I were not able to be with them and celebrate, we had planned on going out to a nice dinner and celebrating while they were here. As their gift, I had planned for a photographer to meet up with us before dinner to take some photos of the 2 of them and then some of all of us as a family. I was SO excited about it and wanted everything to be just perfect!!

Sunday was the day we were planning on doing this. Things seemed kind of hectic that day and to top things off I heard from the photographer (who is a friend of mine) and she said that she had hurt her wrist and was so very sorry, but had to CANCEL our session. I was pretty bummed and disappointed, but I was still determined to get some great photos of my parents! Luckily we invested in a nice camera in November, so I decided to take that with us and stop and take some photos before dinner.

I think they turned out AMAZING and I was so glad that I ended up being the one to take them of my parents!!

My parents are SO beautiful together and I am so very lucky to have them and that they are still together after all these years!! I am also honored that I was actually the one that got to take the photos! My parents thought it made it more special too! I got some great shots and I am SO pleased with how they turned out!! I don't think they could have been any better {if I do say so myself!!} I have always dabbled in photography, so this was a piece of cake to me. I also think that the fact that it was me taking the photos helped my parents relax and be themselves!

I love you Mom & Dad!! I had the best weekend and we made lots of memories!!

I will share more from our weekend soon! Until then, hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday weekend!!
