Ann’s Wedding Picture. 1951. 17 years old.
Last week I showed you a romantic picture of my husband’s grandmother and grandfather. After his grandmother died in 1988, his grandfather remarried two years later. He married a girl he had known as a young man. They had even been on a date before! She had been a widow of four years. My husband’s family calls her Granny Ann and they have been married for 20 years!
Granny Ann is a non-pretentious, sweet woman who loves her new family like they were her very own. She even buys Lydia and Asa Christmas presents every year! This completely stuns me as she already has SIX children of her own and who knows how many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
I love this picture of her because you can see the hope and promise in her eyes. Her hat is delicious and I love her corsage. She is beautiful inside and out!
(Oh, and she’s the one who gave me the pound cake recipe!)
