Another bride!

on January 14, 2014

Today is my mother’s 58th wedding anniversary. I don’t always remember but I did today. Since my dad died 36 years ago it is not a day that we celebrate, but my mother has beautiful memories.

I love this picture of her on their wedding day:

    She looks lovely, Julie. She made a very beautiful bride.

    (Every time I look at wedding photos from that era, I cannot but admire their tiny waists).

      I know – did they wear corsets?

        I think so, Julie.
        I’m amazed every time I see my own Mother’s wedding photos. No white dress, but she looked very slim.

        Even though I was very slim when young(er) – skinny even at a teenager – I always had broad shoulders & hips and a relatively large waistline. I weigh almost double what I did when 19 (Oh, my goodness, can’t believe I said that online – lol).

  3. STUNNING! And you look like your mom!!!! Beautiful beautiful beautiful!!!
