Weekly Travel Theme: Romance


As part of Alisa’s Weekly Travel Theme: Romance I’m sharing a well-loved photo my husband’s Grandparents as a young, engaged couple in the early 1920’s.  They married soon after and had four children starting with my father-in-law  and followed soon after by three beautiful sisters.  I’m sorry I never got a chance to meet Joe and Bess but am happy we have plenty of stories and a few treasured photos to keep their memories alive in our home.

  1. What a wonderful old photograph! You are lucky to have it. I treasure the old photos of my grandparents. They help make real a time and place that seem just out of reach to me.


  2. What a gorgeous old photo, I can feel their love and the ease of each others company. Makes me think of the simple joys of simpler times, when we wanted less and were happy more easily….despite the challenges:-)


  3. Old photos truly are a treasure – and this is a wonderfully natural shot, looks like they are going to have a picnic under those trees. And I agree about that coat 🙂
