HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

Today is the date of my parents wedding anniversary. They were married this date in 1935. My mothers brother Louie and her younger sister Ann were their attendants. My mother had an eighteen inch waist! Look at those lovely calla lily flowers in her bouquet. I had wonderful parents. This picture is framed and hangs in our bedroom with a collage of phamily wedding photos. I am sorry the quality does not shine but it is framed and I would not take that photo apart for anything! I miss my folks as they were wonderful examples of true Christian love. But I do store lots of memories here.



My oldest daughter had wanted to be married on this date and the hall she rented was already taken so she moved her wedding to August 27th. She wanted my mom in attendance and her grandma Rita too so she chose to move her wedding to Pueblo. The Marriott Hotel and Convention Center has 163 rooms and for my daughters wedding we rented 73 rooms and they were all filled with phamily and friends. It was a beautiful wedding and that was ten years ago on Aug. 27th. I am very proud of Noelle and Roger. They have really managed to stay happy and enjoy their phamily. They went to dinner at a Hawaiian steak house on Friday night. If anyone can find a unique eatery it is my girl! She has had a love of good food since she was a small child. So happy  anniversary to my loved ones today.

Oh Happy Anniversary to Noelle and Roger!! I loved reading the stories you had to tell about your parents and your daughter and her hubby. I wish them a long, happy marriage :) :) :)

I thought your parents wedding photo was neat, even when blurry :) :) I could tell that the wedding dress was very beautiful...and they were married during the height of the Depression...that couldn't have been easy. Did they ever share stories with you about those early years?

Have a lovely Sunday, Anne!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Ah, this is sweet! I understand not wanting to take the picture apart. And, I can't say that I have ever enjoyed a waist that small! I think it's neat that your daughter was able to get married around the same time. And, what a wonderful Christian heritage your parents left you!

For some reason, this just brought back all the miracles God performed around our wedding! He definitely let us know that He was orchestrating our marriage.

Thanks for sharing,

That motel in Pueblo... The Marriott Hotel and Convention Center... might of really been hopping with the happiness and laughter that night you rented 73 rooms!

I can understand not risking "de-framing" a picture to take a picture... Your picture came out well enough to show a beautiful bride in an awesome dress...
