Grateful for Mom & Dad

One of the reasons we bought our house was that it's less than a ten minute drive from my parents. (Some people would consider it walking distance, but I am not one of those people.) The older I've gotten the closer I've gotten to both of my parents. Growing up I always considered myself a "daddy's girl," and I definitely still am to some extent, but the older I get the more I rely on my mom.  
Aren't my folks super cute? This was taken on their most recent trip to Cuba.
I got to spend a fair bit of time with my parents this past week (we actually just got home from having supper with them!) and it got me thinking about how fortunate I am to not only still have both of my parents, but to live close to them and have a great relationship with them. That's what I am really feeling grateful for today - what about you?

  1. Your parents are adorable. I've always been a daddy's girl too, since birth! But as I've gotten older, my mom and I have become incredibly close. I'm so happy you have such a strong relationship with your parents! (And I'm sure they are SO grateful for their time with YOU, too!) Thanks for linking up today, Sara! :)

  2. That's awesome you are close with your parents! I live about 5 minutes from my MIL and 15 minutes from my parents and I really like it. My relationship with my parents (especially my dad) was really strained when I lived with them but it's much better now. I'm currently raising a 100% daddy's girl and that bond is so, so special!
