Throwback Thursday: Cute Festive Parent People

Hi!  Happy Thursday!  Only 6 days until Christmas, guys.  Are you still shopping?  I'm not.  I'm just sitting around geeking out over this picture of my parents.  I was looking through old photos last week and I found this gem.  I need to frame it with the quickness.  I mean, HOW CUTE ARE THEY?? It's pretty much making my whole holiday season.

I don't know what year this is but I know it was before I was born.  My parents were married for a decade before they had me so this photo could've been taken in the 60s, and judging by my mother's amazing hair, that would be a good guess.  (Another good guess is that she'll know the exact year when she reads this blog because she's smart like that.)  I love everything about it.  I love the weird tinsel on that fat tree, I love love love my mom's dress and I love my dad's awesome suit and skinny tie.  I love how adorable they are.  Ahhhhh, I'm obsessed with this picture.

Maybe I've been watching too much Love Actually, but it does seem to me that the holiday season is the perfect time to get all mushy.  You can get away with a little extra schmaltz this time of year.  So here I go.  I'm gonna see these two in Texas in four days and I'm gonna hug them really hard.  Because, seriously, I hit the parental jackpot.

This is probably my last post before the holiday so I'd like to wish you guys the merriest of Christmases, the happiest of holidays, the kick-ass-iest of New Year's and the best of everything.  See you in 2014.
