A date...that'll live...in infamy

This past Christmas...well, the day after actually...marked the 101st wedding anniversary of my great-grandparents, Elizabeth and Edward. They were both 23 years old.

It also was the 50th wedding anniversary of my parents, Elizabeth and William. Look at this picture, aren't they cute?

So using the same day, Bo and I exchanged our vows in 2009.  Since Bo has issues with his image being posted on the internet, here are the backs of our heads (that'll show him, huh?):

It was an overcast day and too cold for me outside in a sleeveless dress!  The fur I'm wearing was my mother's.  And here's the ring, in it's permanent home:

And finally, here I am:

I know I don't look happy, but I really was.  Honestly, I was premenstrual (hence the zits) and tired.  Lesson learned:  never allow pictures without lipstick.

Oh, here's the cake. 

My sister-in-law surprised me with the same cake knife my parents used at their wedding!  That was very, very moving.  I missed them very much that day and really wished they were alive to be with us.  They would have loved Bo and he them.

So, it's official.  Well...almost because I still haven't mailed it to the State of Georgia yet for filing.  Seriously, I can't find my stamps.
