Happy Easter everyone, a day to celebrate new beginnings. Speaking of new beginnings, the happy young couple you see in this photo were starting the beginning of a 41 yr. and counting life together. You may have guessed, Yes, that is me and my husband, but I still call him my boyfriend. Down through the years people have wanted to see our wedding photos, of which, there are none because the only people at our wedding were the preacher, Chuck and myself, the church secretary witnessed the paper work and went to lunch. Long story short when Project Tuesday called for an altered picture frame I thought of this one little faded picture taken of us at his Mom's house right before he shipped out to Norfolk, Va. I followed shortly thereafter with 2 suitcases, a makeup bag, and my purse, oh my, Sept. 1968 a very good year. This will be the closest there will ever be to a wedding photo of us.
My little poem doesn't show up as much in the photo as in person, but it's our favorite poem, "Grow old with me! The best is yet to be." by: Robert Browning
I'm going to try to sneak this into Artful Inkable challenge also, Book or Album Cover Inspiration, maybe they'll take this poem. It is in a book of poems by Browning, the only cover I could find simply said Poems by Robert Browning.
Oh, by the way, the flower there is made from the scraps I cut off making the curve inside the heart.
