Happy Anniversary

Today we were going to celebrate my grandparents 60th Wedding Anniversary. Thanks to the 12+ inches of snow we received yesterday, we had to postpone it.
What a cute couple!


My aunt had asked me to do a flower arrangement for them, in a basket that was first used for a 50th Anniversary in 1933!!! It was in fantastic condition (& I was a little nervous to have it with a crazy 3 year old running around)!
** Sorry the picture is so dark, I need to work on the lighting in my living room at night! **

I had a lot of fun putting this together for them. I used 7 roses in the front - one for each of their children. There were 2 roses in the back for them. Getting together with such a large family is kind of crazy but a lot of fun. I have so many great memories of playing & doing things with my cousins, & now watching our kids play & do things together.

60 years is AMAZING & I know it wasn't always easy for them. Seeing people that can stay together that long & work through the tough times is such an inspiration. I hope my hubby & I can make it that far!!

    Congratulations to your grandparents! I think it's so sad that marriages don't seem to last that long anymore. :( My grandparents just celebrated their 50th last year! Woo!
