Loving Hands ... Now and Then by suelbiz47

Loving Hands ... Now and Then

This month we will celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary. Pretty good for two people who met on a blind date and were engaged a week later... hehe Yes, we were wild and crazy kids.

I'd been thinking of the hands theme all week and then I remembered our wedding photos. I knew there was a picture of our hands. So today we staged a similar picture... same hands, newer rings, an even deeper love, and 43 years older and hopefully wiser. I'm a lucky girl to have found my prince charming and he still wants to hold my hand.
Seriously? You met on a blind date and were engaged a week later? That's amazing and wonderful. I guess you just knew.... Wow! Thank you for sharing that. Beautiful photo! Treasure your days together.

Congratulations! My in-laws just celebrated their 50th. Next year it will be my 20th. Keep up your love for each other.

Gret photo Sue. I must say, your hands (both of you) don't look like they aged that much in 43 years. You must be doing something right. Congratulations.

Thanks, everyone. It doesn't feel like 43 years. I guess that's a good thing!

What a wonderful recreation of one of your wedding photos! You weren't crazy... you just knew you made each other happy, and it's great that you're still making each other happy all these years later.

Sue, you are such a special person! This is the loveliest picture I have seen. I am so happy for the two of you!

Sue, I love, love, love this!!!! I think everyone from our generation has the "hands" picture from our wedding. What a fantastic photo of then and now. That would be a lovely invitation cover for a milestone anniversary party!!! (like our 50th!) Great, great photo!
