Happy Anniversary!

Happy 55th to my wonderful parents-in-law, Mom and Dad Keller.
They have a ton of marital advice to give after 55 years together.
One of their pearls of wisdom . . .
Marriage is not 50/50.
For it to work, it takes 100% on both your parts.

I didn't really think much of this advice at first.
You know, in those early days when you hear music play
inside your head when you just look at each other :)

Several years of marriage (two kids, a dog, a cat, and a fish) later and I totally get it. When the phone is ringing, the dog is barfing all over the carpet, the baby has just soiled himself for the 947209540254 time, someone is ringing the doorbell trying to sell us something, dinner is burning, I got three hours of sleep last night, we haven't had a real converstation in days, the garage door is broken, we're all out of clean underwear, and Megan is climbing on top of the fridge . . .

Yeah, now I know what you mean!

Happy 55!
Love you!
