{Happy Anniversary to my beautiful parents}

Yesterday was my parents 34th Wedding Anniversary.
They are currently in Vegas having a wonderful time!
These pictures were taken in 1979 shortly after their wedding.
A few months later, they packed their bags and moved to the United States from Romania.
My mom was 22 and my dad was 26.
I can only imagine how adventurous and scary it must have been to leave everything they have ever known and start their lives in a new country!

34 years later and they have a lot to show for their hard work:
A beautiful home
5 children who are all very tightly knit
1 daughter in-law & 1 son in-law
2 beautiful nieces
My dad owns his own business which is thriving
My mom works as a Job Coach and helps Imigrants and Refugees find jobs & start their lives in the US
They put all 5 of their children through college

But most of all; they taught us to be hard workers, honest, and live with high moral standards.
They taught us to love God.
Value family.
Love each other.

These are my amazing parents.
I am so so thankful for them.

Thank you Mom & Dad for choosing family, honesty, hard work & integrity.
Thank you for loving us so much!
God Bless You!

I love you!

This is such a sweet post! My parents immigrated from Ukraine 23 years ago, and I am always so grateful and proud of their bold leap of faith.

Congrats to your parents! 34 years is huge:)
