{Oh my goodness.  I just had to re-blog this from butter and brass.  Such a sweet story! I can't stop staring at the photo.}

A Lifetime of Love

my grandma and grandpa, dorothy and donald, were married on a warm june afternoon in 1949 in a small church in st. paul, minnesota. the day before the wedding, a doctor had discovered that my grandpa had strep throat and prescribed him antibiotics and bed rest. the morning of the wedding, his temperature was well over 100°F. regardless, nothing would stop him from marrying my grandma. she wore a beautiful, new, white suit with pearl and gold buttons and an orchid corsage, a borrowed gold necklace, and a traditional blue garter. after driving off in their decorated car, my grandpa went back to bed. i love this photo of them. my grandpa could not take his eyes off her, and who could blame him.

Isn't that so sweet?  Happy Valentine's Day!
