Happy 60th Anniversary!

Just married!
This almost slipped my mind, but today would have been my parents' 60th wedding anniversary.  Earlier I had been reminiscing about their 50th anniversary celebration and wondered why it had popped into my thoughts; finally, the date connected with me and I realized that this was their 60th.

The wedding was simple, held in my grandparents' home.  A friend played the piano and sang and the refreshments were cake and punch.  I remember my mother saying that after paying for everything for the wedding she had twenty-cents in her wallet when she and Daddy pulled out of the driveway to leave for their new life together!

  1. Awe! Love her glasses! Too cool. My grandparents had a simple ceremony too. Their families were farmers so they really couldn't justify buying a big poofy dress to just wear one time. My grandmother wore a pretty full skirted 50's frock and my granddaddy wore a sharp Sunday suit. They got married in the local church and had punch and cake like your parents. It's amazing how things have changed!
