HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO MY HERO (Oh Yeah-and to ME)

She wore flowers in her hair-
Yes she did!

42 years of marriage started here-
on the riverbank in Alva, Florida.
Whoop-de-doo
When did I get wrinkles and
when did his hair disappear?

sigh

The bride wore a Gunne Sax gown
and the groom wore a
BLUE LEISURE SUIT!
LOL

Then, we had to re-marry a few years later
IN A CHURCH
just to make everyone happy!

And where are those pictures?
Yeah- I am wondering that, too! 

Hope you all have a wonderful day.
I am planning on doing the same!

Happy Anniversary to you both! You both look beautiful. I remember that style of dress that you wore and I loved the style. My DH also enjoyed wearing leisure suits too - they were comfortable. On the 28th of this month, I will be celebrating 57 years with my DH. We were high-school sweethearts. A few years ago, my DH and I went to our 55th class reunion. We were the only ones in the room still married to each other. LOL Have a great day. Love reading your blog and your prayer requests.

Happy Anniversary and what a lovely couple! I would love to see the other pictures when you find them myself! Beautiful Diana and Hero looks great in his leisure suit, how well do I remember those!

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Happy Anniversary Diana. You are still as lovely as ever. In fact you look like a young Dyan Cannon, whom I love, by the way! I loved those Gunne Sax dresses and mine was similiar. Also Mr. Sissie had a blue leisure suit with a shirt that matched the lining! Your Man was styling!
I hope that you have many more wonderful years together.

hugs,
Sissie

You are just too groovy for words!! I agree with the young Dyan Cannon comment from above. Actually, you haven't changed a bit. As for your hero, he seems to be sporting less sideburn these days :) -Jenn

The clothes of our past haunt us through time. That blue leisure suit is da bomb! I recently saw some drapes that looked just like a pair of bell bottoms I wore in 1971.

Happy Anniversary. You haven't age a bit my friend. Oh, and Gunne Sax dresses. I had several and my niece wore one as my flower girl. Still have it packed away as she passed it down to my girls.

I pray for your health and the future for you both.

Oh my goodness I wore a Gunne Sax gown, too. Our daughter calls it my hippy wedding dress. I still have mine, do you? Young lady you get prettier with age . . . like fine wine:) Sweet photos.

Happy Anniversary to you and your man Diana. What a wonderful legacy to give your kids. We just celebrated 39 yrs, it went by so fast. I remember Gunne Sax dresses(I had several)and my hubby wore a leisure suit for his going away outfit-the days of John Travolta. You were a beautiful bride and your hubby was quite handsome. You are still a beautiful bride! May you have many more decades together.

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh a very happy anniversary to you two! How cute were those flower children! 'If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.' Love the photos, Diana. Gunne Sax was all the fashion and leisure suits. What fun memories that brings back! And how the Lord has used you two over the years. Faithful servants. God bless you!

My grandmother sold Gunne Sax dresses in her store. I remember them! Did you know that they're selling for a pretty penny now in certain high end vintage shops! Y'all are too, too cute. You look like Lonnie Anderson, and your hubs looks like Clint Eastwood!

Happy Anniversary!!!

Hope you had a wonderful anniversary!

Oh, my word, the Gunne Sax dresses. . . weren't they something? I remember finding one on clearance in a size that was too big for me. I bought it even though it was too big: I was just so happy to have it!

You look beautiful in these photos. I think you should wear flowers in your hair more often! :)

Missy George said...

Katie Isabella said...

Such a gorgeous couple and Gunne Sax!!! I was "old" for them but I wore them anyway on occasion. I was a young mother..I didn't let that stand in my way. xx

jmac said...

beautiful couple!!! Happy Happy Day to you both!!

LV said...

What a difference time makes! I definitely remember the leisure suits. Today, the trend is more for outdoor weddings instead of churches. I still love the church ones best. Wishing you many, many more blessed, healthy years.
