A picture is worth a thousand words

Every once in a while I find a picture that I absolutely fall in love with.
I found this particular photograph a couple of years ago.
This is a picture of my Grandmother and Grandfather shortly after they got married.
I can't pinpoint what exactly it is that I love so much about this picture.
I love the location: In England standing in front of Buckingham Palace.
I love the time period: 1953.
I love my grandfather's Air Force uniform.
I love my grandmother's sleek, polished style. It's timeless.
I love the story behind the picture: My grandfather was stationed in England, where he met my grandmother, and later brought her back to the U.S. with him.
I keep this picture in a frame on my dresser.
They will be celebrating their 59th year of marriage this year.


  1. Lovely picture! I love old pictures of family members like that.

  2. This is SUCH a special picture!!! I adore old family photos-- they really mean so much. Love this!
