Happy Anniversary Mami & Tati – my parents celebrated 40 years of being (and staying) married yesterday. FORTY years. That's a lot of loving, listening and compromising. I've learned so much about who I want to be as a wife and parent from watching the way my parents interact with each other and the world. This is not to be confused with us agreeing on everything but rather that with enough love, listening and compromising you can make a pretty damn happy life for yourself.
