Recently my sister gave me a burned cd of photos my uncle scanned that belonged to my maternal grandmother. My grandma kept a lot of photos. She lived from January 30th, 1923 until January 1, 2007.
I have blogged on here about her before, I have a part of her with me every day (my wedding band was her wedding band), and I think about her and my grandfather all the time. Especially when I see cute little elderly couples holding hands or laughing together in love. I want to grow old with my own husband the way they grew old together.
I really miss them both, and looking at the photos my uncle scanned for us really pulls at my heart strings. It makes me happy and also sad that I didn't know them the way my mom knew them or the way they knew each other. The photos are very sweet and heart-warming so I have to share some of them here. And my grandma had really good style back in the 40's and 50's (and even after, I always remember thinking she had great taste).
(This one says "your wife, love you" !! The back of it has a heart felt message she wrote to my grandfather. I think this was a photo she sent to him during the war.)
And on their wedding day..
