60 Years of Love

Today is oma and opa's diamond wedding anniversary!

Yes, 60 years of being together, still in love.

As opa just had an operation, and though he is better now, the celebration is being pushed a little later. But I am sure, they are both celebrating in their wonderful own way, today.

You want to know their love story? Read here.

Oh and about the wedding dress of oma; you might be as curious as the kids so I am sharing the story to you.

They got married right after World War 2, being practical which most people were during those times; she decided to create a dinner dress our of that wedding gown.

I asked her where the gown is and she said she dont know where it is now. We only have the photo. And the kids so wanted to have a photo wearing that same wedding gown of oma :) I told you, they are real crazy about weddings!

When I get old I want to be like them! Grey hair, old & wrinkled and yet still loving each other ! That's rare in our time, after 5 years of marriage=divorce if something isn't right and they think it's the better solution, sad !
