All in the Family

Today is a very special day. Of course, it's Mother's Day. It is also my dad's birthday. And, as if that weren't enough, it is also my sister-in-law's birthday!

All three of them are awesome people, and I feel so lucky to be related to all of them.

I definitely got my love of food from my parents. If you've read my blog for any length of time, you've probably seen the amaaaazing food my mom makes. Many of my favorites of her dishes are featured on this post. She and I have very similar food taste, and will frequently be eyeing the same things on the menu when we go out to eat.

My dad is a good cook, too, although it was a rare sight to see him standing in front of the stove. But I credit him with my love of dark meat and my sweet tooth (and, more specifically, the feelings of nostalgia I experience whenever I eat soft serve from Dairy Queen).

Here is a photo of them on their wedding day. Aren't they the cutest?

And here's a photo of them from last Christmas, when my dad surprised my mom with a ring at the end of the gift-giving. I love that my dad was so thoughtful to have surprised my mom with a gift like that after forty-seven (!!!) years.


They are the best parents I could ever have asked for and I love them so much.

As for my sister-in-law, not only is she a fabulous woman and a wonderful partner for my brother, but she also cooked up the cutest baby in the universe.
