They were breathtaking.


The other night when I couldn't sleep, I did a favorite thing of mine to do any time I am home at my parents : flip through old family photos. I came across the above gem tucked away in an album and couldn't stop staring at this one of my parents before they were married. Before they had six children.

They were breathtaking. My Dad said the love of his life was 19 and he was only 20.


On January 3rd my parents celebrated 42 years of marriage.

So sweet. I like looking at photos of my parents when they were first married. And not so grouchy and bitter. . . But hey, on a brighter note, I can't wait to see you!

love, love your parents love. my parents split up but I have a photo of them when they first got together and they look so young and so happy I still love that photo because our family had twenty good years together and that photo reminds me of that. Brendan and I celebrate 6 years in less then a month - I can only hope we have a love as strong as your parents.

I love these pictures. I kick myself for not making copies of them to bring them here and frame them :) Love, simple and fun <3
