I have been going through tons of photos and slides and old letters lately. Here's a pic from my parents' wedding day:
They were SO young! It was 1953, and Mum was just barely 20, Dad 22. Mum sewed her wedding dress, which had a calf-length skirt. (She sewed MY wedding dress too! She was a skilled and gifted dressmaker.) They were married in Surrey, England and moved to Canada five years later, hoping to get ahead (which they did.)
After 19 years of marriage, things went splat and they split up. But it's nice to think of them being so happy on this day.
