The weekend before last, my Grandma Rice turned 90 years old, so Jesse and I drove up to Grand Island, NY to celebrate with my family. I love looking through people's photo albums and imagining all of the events captured in snapshots. Looking through my Grandmother's meticulously numbered and labeled albums was especially a treat. It's wild seeing people who you only identify under the labels grandma and grandpa as young kids with their whole lives still ahead of them.
There were certain images I didn't want to forget so I took some quick snapshots with my point-and-shoot digital camera as we were on our way out the door. Excuse the blurriness, but I think they're too romantic not to share.
They got married on July 12th, 1947 and remained together until my grandfather passed away three years ago, one day before their 60th wedding anniversary. Jesse and I decided to get married on the same date in the hopes of having such good marriage luck. During our visit, we actually got to watch some old film footage of their wedding (in color!) that had been lost for years.
