Family congratulations are in order, starting with my Mom and Dad. We're heading up to Orange this weekend to celebrate a remarkable milestone, their 60th wedding anniversary. I'm looking forward to hearing about courting in Boston when my Dad joined the Navy, the wedding in Grandma's living room, the honeymoon (where did they go? did they even have a honeymoon?), and how right after the wedding, my Dad shipped out to the South Pacific and didn't get home again for nearly two years. With that as a beginning, I suppose the next fifty-eight years were easy in comparison. Then again, people may show great strength in their relationships during difficult times but allow the same relationship to succumb to mundane times. But not them. Keeping a balance and constantly celebrating each other have been hallmarks of their marriage throughout. We're proud to share the celebration with them.
Meg will be with us too, relaxing after the recent beta release of Kinja, the project she's worked on for the past year and more. We congratulate Meg and the whole Kinja team, joining in her co-worker's sentiment. Kinja, go forth and prosper.
