25 Years and Beyond!

June 10, 2009

Most of the couples I feature here on my blog have been married mere weeks, even days.  Today I have a couple who is celebrating 25 years!

25 years ago I attended their wedding…sadly my camera was not in hand. I was 8. This lovely couple are my aunt and uncle. Uncle Ron is my dad’s big brother and like my dad loves the water and his boat. This first photo represents an important history from my dad’s side of the family. My dad grew up in this home. Aunt Margaret and Uncle Ron have carried on the traditions of this home as I grew up next door to it.

My aunt Margaret was also my Sunday School Teacher. She has always had such a fun way about her. Among all my teachers from Kindergarten through University I remember her as being the most fun. I always felt ‘grown up’ around her, as though she valued my points of view. She moved in next door when I was 8 and from there on in I felt like I had a place to go to be me.

I’m sure you all agree that there is evident love between this lovely couple. But I would have to argue that maybe, just maybe, his boat is my uncle’s first love!

    They’re all lovely, but the one in the boat reminds me of two giddy teenagers sneaking off so I have to say it’s my fave!
