60th Anniversary













I just got back from Ohio. My grandparents have been married for 60 years. That is cause for celebration.

There were multiple funny conversations. Among them was this:

Cousin: Can believe you have been married that long?!?
Grandma: Ohhhhhh, yes.
Cousin: Grandma you're supposed to say no!
Grandma: Feels like its been longer.

She doesn't mince words.

One of the best parts about it were these cape cod honeymoon pictures my aunt had digitized from slides.
Slides!

A couple things of note.

1. My grandma was a total hottie.
2. The dress and bathing suit are fabulous.
3. That is finally a shade of red lipstick I can pull off. Coral-y, orange-y red. Subtle but gorgeous. Buying tomorrow.

Great pictures! They do indeed look like an ad. I actually took old photos of my gparents, made them black and white cutouts, and put them on t-shirts...it was a great summer project. Your grandmother looks like a model.
Anyway, I came to your site from Unruly Things and I think it's great! Keep up the awesome job.
