My mother’s parents, Daniel and Leona, were married in 1939. This portrait was taken in 1989 to mark their 50th wedding anniversary. Isn’t it wonderful when we have special photos like this of the ones we love? I wish that my grandparents were around to ask them what 50 years of marriage is like, what it was like to be young newlyweds in 1939, and many more questions. Alas, I didn’t think about asking those types of questions when I was younger and they were alive.
This layout is based on a sketch I found at the Artful Delight blog. It’s their August layout challenge sketch.
Are you fortunate enough to have your grandparents around? If so, I would like to gently nudge you to ask questions about their lives now.
