A Tale of Two Hats

38 years ago today, my parents were married in Palm Springs at my grandparent's home. My mom wore a gorgeous silk organza dress made by my grandmother, and my dad rocked a handlebar mustache like it was his job. They were introduced by friends, and what ensued was a love affair rooted in travel, laughter, and great design. The running joke is that my dad taught my mom to read a map, and my mom taught my dad how to dress, how to decorate, how to entertain, and well, everything else outside of geography. This photo was taken on their honeymoon in Hawaii, clearly before class was in session. (SWEET hat, Dad.) The moral of the story, you ask? Today is my parents' anniversary and they're kinda the coolest peeps I know, so I thought I'd celebrate it...by totally humiliating them with this pic! I know, I know, I'm a great daughter.

Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad. Thanks for teaching ME everything I needed to know about life and love and well, everything. I love you guys. (And your rad attire.)

Ha.Ha.Ha. What a sweet post! We, of course, disavow all responsibility for the terrycloth hat. It must have been photoshopped. Otherwise, how does one explain the excursion into the dark side of haute couture? Dad
