Late one evening I was going through a drawer full of paperwork, envelopes and various "stuff". In the midst of saved banking information, medical paperwork and bookwork...I found my parent's wedding pictures. I have a copy of one of their wedding pictures at my house, but I'd never seen the rest of the pictures. I grabbed my camera and took "pictures of the pictures" so I would have a set of them safely stored somewhere. I sat them aside and finished the drawer. About an hour later, when I was working on a different drawer, from a different place in the house...I found an envelope of old pictures and clippings. In that envelope was the newspaper announcement from my parent's wedding. Coincidence? I don't know.
The best part of this story is that when I called my dad into the room to see what I'd found the look on his face was priceless. He thought the wedding pictures had been lost when a prior home had flooded. He didn't think he still had any of his wedding pictures and he had them all. What a blessing for all of us. Thankfully, I looked in every envelope at every item before throwing anything away.
Today, I'll share a few of the pictures and take you back to 1947...
They are all named Bob
Look at those outfits my grandmothers were wearing!
Weren't they cute and so very young!
