Favorite Photo

Just recently I happened upon this picture of my Grandma (Maxine) & Grandpa (Royal) on their wedding day.  I've never seen it before and it caught me by surprise.  I don't think I have ever really seen that many pictures of my grandparents when they were younger.  They were such a gorgeous couple!  My Grandma's eye are just breath taking.

I just looove old vintage family photos, and this one has got to be one of my favorites.  It's especially personal to me since Ryan & I's wedding anniversary is just a few weeks away. 

When we build a mantel over our fire place in the den I plan to display a host of old family photos on it.  I wasn't planning on tackling that project quite yet but this picture has speed that idea up!

I'm feeling pretty sentimental today and this has brought back so many memories of them.  My Grandma is my only living grandparent and she is like a second mother to me.  I lost my grandpa right after my wedding.  On the flight home from our honeymoon during a layover I found out he had passed away.  Talk about coming back to reality!  I really cherish my childhood memories of them and it's so hard to see loved ones get older and pass away. 

Ryan & I would be so lucky to have a long lasting marriage like the two of them did.  I hope we have just as many years together or more.
