I love my parents. I took this picture and a few others when we were home in October. My parents have been together since they were 16, when they met at a picnic. Mom said she saw Pop playing baseball and thought he was so cute. They celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary earlier this year. I’ve always taken after my dad – he and I and his father are the only brown-eyed children our respective generations. I have his coloring and his chin, but as I grow older, I think I look more and more like my mom.
This picture makes me homesick.
