This weekend we celebrated Eric's grandparent's 70th Wedding Anniversary.
It was a big weekend.
Can you imagine?
Eric's grandma saved her wedding dress, shoes, veil, train, flowers she wore in her hair....all of it.
The wedding dress was in fantastic condition, hand-made by her aunt and so pretty.
Imagine, all of this was in 1941, during the War...it seems a lifetime ago.
I think that not too long after they were married he was deployed overseas.
She saved her wedding toppers, a bridal shower napkin, her dress pattern and those little
bride and groom kewpie dolls. I am so glad she did!
I am in love with that wedding topper.
It was a long, busy weekend and it was wonderful to be able to get to celebrate such a
monumental anniversary with two really special people.
Not having any living grandparents myself, I feel really lucky that Eric's grandparents are in
our lives and live close to us. A lovely weekend, indeed.
