CELEBRATING 53 YEARS OF MARRIAGE THIS WEEK
THROUGH THE YEARS
OUR WEDDING DAY APRIL 20, 1963
This is a snapshot at our reception. Bill's suit is blue but it is hard to tell.
Back then punch and cake was appropriate and I have a punch cup in my hand. Bill was in college and money was sparse.
We also had mints, peanuts and "I" made the grooms cake.
We did have a lovely wedding cake.
Our 25th anniversary was on a cruise with 50 family members and friends.
Five children and they were all there.
We wore pink...even men wore pink in 1988. However, the background was blue.
Our 50th Anniversary with our five children
We celebrated with over 75 of our family and friends.
Our party was held here at the Balsam Inn. This Inn is over 100 years old.
This is our granddaughter. Most of our guests stayed at the Inn the night of the party. It was a "grand" celebration.
HERE WE ARE NOW
Thank goodness there is a touch of blue in the bottom corner.
We are blessed beyond words to have each other for 53 years and still be in love.
Happy Blue Monday
Blessings and love,
Note: If you made it to the end...Thank you for bearing with me on this long post sharing our long marriage.
