    I’m sure theses photos hold many fond memories.

      They definitely do. They were high school sweethearts and will be celebrating 50 years in April. :)

    • Jessica January 29, 2017 / 7:41 pm

      Yes! :) For some reason I felt like celebrating them today! Some of my friends have lost their parents and miss them so much. I just wanted mine to know how much they mean to me. :)

    I love the old photos! Old photos are so much fun. When my in-laws celebrated their 50th (12 years ago) the kids got together and made a family photo album. It was so much fun looking through old pictures of my husband and his siblings. They also had reels and reels of old slides. We spent and entire afternoon with the entire family looking (and commenting and laughing) at them all.

      Ohhhhhhh. That sounds so great. I bet that was the BEST day! Thank you for sharing that with me. I can just “see” your whole family sitting in a living room and so happy! You just made my night! :)

        It was great! There were grandkids laying all over the floor. So much laughter.

          Oh! That makes me happy! My dad has his mom’s, my grandma Wilma’s journals. I’ve been reading a few of them. I guess one year after Christmas, they invited some of her and grandpa’s siblings and their grown kids over and they all watched old black and white movies of the families. Oh, how I wish I’d been there. :)

            Reminds me of your story. 😊

    I love seeing pictures of these fashions as it reminds me of my own childhood. I was blessed with awesome parents too. 😊

    • Jessica January 30, 2017 / 11:49 am

      I’m so glad you like this. What you said about the fashions makes me smile. My mom has the trendiest closet! Then and now! I’m happy to hear you were blessed with awesome parents, too. :)

        • Jessica January 30, 2017 / 12:21 pm

          Sometimes! :) She’s also good about passing things onto to me and my sisters! Lucky us!

    Lovely photos, they’re precious! I enjoy looking at photos of my mother when she was a young girl and woman – also fun to look at the fashion of the time!

    • Jessica January 30, 2017 / 12:15 pm

      I’d love to see photos of your mum. Bet she’s beautiful. It is fun to see our mothers before babies. :) Thank you for your lovely words!

      • Annika Perry January 31, 2017 / 6:12 am

        Jessica, this is so sweet. You are right, my mother is beautiful and always has been – she has a great sense of style (ha! she lucked out with me the tomboy daughter!).😀

        • Jessica January 31, 2017 / 7:19 am

          Oh my. Your mother and mine sound so much alike! Mine is very fashion savvy. That’s funny about you being a tomboy! Sounds like WE have something in common!! 😊😊

  5. Linda Osborne January 30, 2017 / 10:12 am

    I couldn’t agree with you more! I love them both dearly and treasure time spent with them. They have created a beautiful family and you are one very special young woman. Love you,

    • Jessica January 30, 2017 / 12:17 pm

      Aw! Thank you, Miss Linda. You’re always so good to me! I LOVE that you’ve known my parents longer than I have! PS you looked beautiful in their wedding picture! Love you, too! ❤️

    I look at your parents and I see Susan Sarandon and Gary Cooper!

    I hope they’ll have a fantastic anniversary this April!

    • Jessica February 1, 2017 / 7:12 pm

      Wowsa!!! That’s a wonderful comment!! ❤️💜☀️

      • Mrs Strawberry Blonde February 1, 2017 / 9:15 pm

        I meant it! :)

        I wanted to comment on quite a few posts but over the past two weeks I haven’t been myself. I had to submit my tax return by yesterday and I almost despaired. But it’s the same every year… anyway, I slayed the tax demon – 5 hours before the end of the deadline! :)

        I also wanted to comment on that house you found, the one with the boarded-up windows. I too wouldn’t have gone in – but not because I would have been afraid of trespassing. I would have been more afraid of who and what might be waiting inside… seriously, why would anyone board up the windows but leave the door open? I know I scare easily. And sometimes I’m scared of things that aren’t even scary, but it’s who I am. But then… you have recently experienced that fear can be a good thing – I mean the dodgy guy ‘waiting for you’ to leave the library…

        Have you guys actually managed to beat that nasty virus? I hope you’re well. xx

        • Jessica February 1, 2017 / 11:00 pm

          Wow! Glad to hear you got your taxes done and in. I’m going to be doing that soon as well… Yuck. I’d say we’re about even on the wanting to comment on each other’s posts. No worries, there. I’m not going anywhere.

          Ha ha. That’s a good point about the house. I kind of wondered why there was wood piled up on the front porch… Someone using it for heat?

          Down the road from where Little Bit takes horse riding lessons, probably 10-12 years agothere used to be a big ol’ 2 story, completely run down house. It was abandoned, of course.

          One day I was driving by there and I SAW a man in there. Then he was gone. I thought I was seeing things. Maybe a year later, they tore the house down.

          Last month I found out that there WAS a man living in that house the time I saw him. The house belonged to his family and he lived there with no electric or water… So, your idea of someone being inside may not be too far fetched!!

          Our virus finally went away! Hooray! Things are much better here! Thanks for asking! Big hugs to you, my friend!!

          • Mrs Strawberry Blonde February 2, 2017 / 8:27 pm

            Glad to hear you guys have recovered from the virus. xx

            Believe it or not, last night I had a dream about an abandoned building. It was a building I used to work in before everyone was made redundant (long time ago). The building’s quite ugly, and I never knew whether a different company had moved in. Anyhoo, in my dream I had to find the building. And it was difficult! When I arrived, I found the building to be empty. I was quite sad. So when I woke up this morning the first thing I did was googling the building – and it appears that a company with 400 staff moved in some time ago! I was happy about that!

          • Jessica February 2, 2017 / 11:12 pm

            Oh my gosh! That’s a dream! Hmm. Wonder if it was all that talk about abandoned houses!

    • Jessica February 1, 2017 / 7:13 pm

      And, thank you. 😊💗🌻

      That’s very sweet of you, thank you! They’re really great people. 😊😊
