Mom and dad are planning to renew their vows. This year, they will be celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary. My parents were never married in church; they eloped and what they had was a civil wedding. My siblings and I encouraged them to have a church wedding this time and they agreed. I will be in charge of the food and wedding decorations while my sister will take care of the rest. It's still a few months away but we are already very excited. The groom and the bride are utterly quiet about the whole affair but we are sure they are excited too.
