November 20, 1949

This date always stands out to me.  it is the date that my parents got married...they eloped while in college at UGA....
Here is a picture of them taken at their wedding reception ....I love to look at the picture..the tablecloth my Grandmother used on this table now lives with me..one of my cherished family heirlooms...

they were so young here......and had a lot of life to live before it was over ..they were married for over 50 years..today would have been 63 years...wow that's a long time........
funny thing...Me and Bryan eloped from the very same town 48 years later....I am telling ya, generational ties are strong things...they go on even when we think they don't..I like the tie here...my parents and us...we share the same kinda of wedding....an elopement.....and from the same town..

Here are my parents as they started out their life together 63 years ago today...

Mama and Daddy


Happy Anniversary Mama and Daddy......I am glad you got together and stayed together....the older I get, the more I understand how difficult it must have been to stay married for your whole lifetime but how much it meant to me that you did it....thank you....I just wish my Mama was still here so she could read my blog.....she would have loved it...

thank you for stopping by and sharing in this post...I hope to see you again soon...

  1. Oh, my goodness, were they cute!! The anniversary of my parents is coming up on the 27th. They would have been married 74 years! You are certainly right, your mother would have loved the blog - especially, all of your beautiful flower photos!
