My Parents Were Awesome

...or so apparently the world would like to think. How else can one explain the phenomenon of new "It-blog" MY PARENTS WERE AWESOME? A surprisingly simple but ultra groovy site oozing with nostalgia where anyone can send in photos of their parents and grandparents from a time "before the fanny packs and Andrea Bocelli concerts".

It's a comforting daily post-it reminding us that yes, before rules about curfews and parties and riding cars with boys, they too (along with thick moustaches, greased-down hair, slim waistbands and big skirts) were once fashionable, happy-go-lucky folks that knew how to have a damn good time.

I've already submitted this photo:

Mak, Tato, Chicha, Bear: one day we hope you think we're pretty awesome ourselves.

I LOVE both pictures... gorgeous couple they are! Good times before the three "little monsters" came out? Hehehe! But more important than the guapo and guapa part, they are AWESOME parents and grandparents. You are sooo blessed Nana : )

Nona has said exactly what I was going to say! So I'll just say that these pictures are really beautiful...
And that I bet your children (to you both) already think/know they have awesome parents!
