Twenty Nine Years Ago...
Today is our 29th Wedding Anniversary so this post is very short! The card above was made with some "leftovers" from another project that I will share in a day or two. I put it at the top of this post so my wedding photos wouldn't be showing up in the blog lists on all of the blogs that link to me.
The wedding doesn't seem so long ago - until I look at the photos and see how young (and skinny!) we look.
The littlest flower girl in this photo is now 32 and has been married for over six years. The ring bearer is married with two children and the older flower girl is engaged and will be married in September.
Here we are with our parents. My mother passed away in 1996, but we are lucky to still have my Dad and my husband's parents (who just celebrated their 55th anniversary).
I never made a wedding scrapbook, in fact, we never even ordered wedding photos so I only have the original shots. I took them out of the photo sleeves they were in a couple of years ago because the adhesive that holds the sleeves together had disintegrated and left some white residue on the edges of some photos.
One of my goals for the coming year is to put together an album in time for our 30th anniversary. I will have to do a lot of touch up on the older photos that I have scanned, however, since we were married "pre-digital," I don't have thousands of them to sort through. I do still have all of the "memorabilia" to include (which is pretty incredible considering the number of times we have moved since getting married).
Thanks for taking a short trip down Memory Lane with me.
