Thirty-five years ago today . . .

Wow! The years seem to have just flown by since I myself was a bride on a very hot summer day in Fairfield on August 24, 1974. If we look like a couple of kids, it’s because we were . . . teenagers in fact! As you can see, wedding attire has changed quite a bit since my own wedding day. No strapless gowns back then as is the norm today. And that headpiece atop my veil . . . oh my. Seen any blue tux’s with ruffled shirts and a bow tie lately on any grooms?

Jo Ann — Yes, the little sandwiches mom packed for me and Mark to take on our honeymoon to Lake Tahoe. We might have starved on our three hour car trip, you know! What a priceless memory and a wonderful mother.

Linda — Shirley Temple . . . that is so funny! I have all this curly hair and yet I blow dry it to make it straight!

Thanks for sharing a precious memory, my little sissy. It was a great day, thanks for the memories. I’ll always remember Mom and the sandwiches! Happy 35th to you and Mark.

What a beautiful bride. You know when you were a little girl I used to say you looked like Shirley Temple with all your blonde curls. In your wedding picture you look like her when she was that age! Happy 35th anniversary.
