|DH and I - 54 years ago|
I'm not that into these things, so it was great that my mom was. And she did a terrific job as everything was perfect... and fun (which I didn't expect - since being the center of attention has never been my thing - but the champagne helped).
Here's another pic in our 'going away outfits':
We weren't really going very far as we honeymooned one night in the French Quarter in New Orleans and then had to be back on campus for graduation.
After we graduated, we moved to Satellite Beach, Florida where DH had his first engineering job. We had an upstairs apartment not far from the beach and not far from Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral. This was 1968... so we were able to watch space shots from our apartment... which was exciting.
We moved from Florida to Texas in 1971 with 2 toddlers... and had a third in 1973... haven't moved again... and probably won't.
The 3 kids are all married now and have families of their own. They all live fairly close (none more than a few hours away) so we get to see them all a few times a year. So... despite the pandemic, despite the toxic political atmosphere, and despite the fact that life isn't always perfect - after 54 years, it's still good... and I would do it all over again if given the chance.
Thanks for going down memory lane with me... I could post lots more pics of kids, family, grandkids, and cats... but won't bore you with that (at least not today).
Stay well and stay safe!
Hugs (virtual of course),
Almost forgot to post a pic of our Anniversary cake...
