When Life is Well, Life

One thing that really concerns me is the setting up for disappointment of the younger generations.

Things I know: 
1) When one works for something one appreciates it more
2) Life isn't all rainbows and unicorns
3) Expectations are just that, expectations
4) Everyone should live through the Ramen noodles and other such college survival foods, it just seems like a right of passage and makes home cooked meals just divine
5) Every marriage can benefit from a cheap apartment/ugly couch beginning, seriously it is all an upgrade from those humble beginnings
6) Life is about everyday, down and dirty living NOT the big events or planned family outings 
7) Sometimes you spend your anniversary at the ER because that is real life (my husband has kidney stones and boy is that painful) 
8) I can be thankful and even happy in the not so fun days because we were together on our anniversary and kidney stones may be extremely painful but they are a much better ER diagnosis than we could have received. 
9) How can we be married for twenty-three years?? I cannot be much older than that myself.

Class of 2016

And we have our first graduate. 

He played baseball the day of his graduation party and it happened to be senior day as well. 

I had my husband talk during graduation, I would have cried and it would not have been pretty. 

Instead I was able to laugh at something Benjamin said during the diploma presentation. 

Of course there was food: pork, chicken and side dishes, 

and desserts

I didn't get too many pictures during the party because I was busy enjoying good conversation.
