Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Shanks
|My God, they are a good looking couple. |
And happiness just radiated from them.
I am not ready to jump back into the blog yet.
After our busy week (and year), topped off by these two wonderfully happy faces,
I crashed on the couch yesterday
and today mom has a doctor's appointment.
Back to life a usual! :-) But not!
Now I have another daughter.
But I couldn't wait to post my favorite pictures.
I'll be back with more pictures - rehearsal and wedding next week.
The professional shots will be several weeks in the future.
I show a few of those when I get them.
But here are a handful of my favorites for you now.
|Mom - May 19th is mom's wedding anniversary. |
66 years ago she was the bride.
Mom made it to the wedding.
And as you can see, she was dressed in new clothes, hair done up
and smile bursting from her face.
My eyes tear up every time I see her joy in this picture.
She had such a difficult year.
To make it to this point with such happiness was a major achievement for both of us.
|Wedding Cake Topper|
The wedding cake topper was just perfect.
The bride with dark brown hair,
the groom with no hair
and "the boys", Grimace (Pug) and Meathead (Bull Dog) ...
|My husband and I|
And then these two old people showed up!! :-)
We let them stay.
They were dressed nice.
