Throwback Thursday

Happy Anniversary to my mother and father.  If they were alive, they would be celebrating their 46th Anniversary.  Not a day passes where I don’t think about them and miss their presence in my life.  I look at my children and am saddened by the knowledge that they have grown-up without my parents in their lives.  However, I can see my parents in each of them and believe that they’re looking over their grandchildren.

I know, I know, there are more pictures of mom than dad in this one.  I only have one picture of my father during his honeymoon.  I have to ask my sister to look through her photos for more.

    Sweet photos! Especially love that wedding shot.

    And you’re mom was one gorgeous woman. She could’ve given a Victorian princess on a movie set a run for her money.

      Thank you! We still have the gown. Unfortunately, It didn’t fit either my sister or I. The women in my family are shrinking! Mom was 3 inches taller than I am, and 7 1/2 taller than my sister, lol!

        Meant the comment below as a reply! I messed up. Sorry about that.

    Wow! Quite a difference in height!

    I tried on my mother’s wedding gown when i was thirteen, and it fit perfectly. 🙂 She is still so petite, and i’m definitely not. Lol

      Similar issue with my statuesque mother and I, lol!
