Ain’t Love Grand !!!

So the saying goes, and looking at this gorgeous couple, my Aunt and Uncle, at the weekend, I would have to agree. 

60 years of marriage is a huge achievement for any couple, but to see these two so caring of each other, still sharing jokes, enjoying each other’s company, and enjoying the celebration of this achievement was one of those occasions I will always remember.


To be able to celebrate the occasion with their bridal party was equally momentous.


It was good to be able to catch up with my 2 sisters also, and take the opportunity for some photos. 


Sharing some pre dinner nibbles as part of celebrating our own wedding anniversary was good too. Motel rooms dont allow for the poshest settings, but the nibblies tasted just as good. 



But there was very little stitching done, apart from a little more work on my “secret” stitching.

I've removed the Word Verification from my comments section so it should be easier to leave a comment. I am finding the double word verification difficult to read and enter – I always seem to have to redo it, even after checking carefully to be sure it is correct, so hopefully this will make it easier for you too as I do love hearing from you. If I find it creates a problem I can go back to using it, but many of you are finding it is ok without, so it is worth a try. If you want to remove it from your blog, or read more about it, Robyn from Stitchin Time has some very easy to follow instructions. Or alternatively read this post at The run-a-roundranch blog.

Yep, 60 years is a wonderful thing! What a darling couple they are. And to have the wedding party there too is amazing!

Cute pic of you and your sisters, and congratulations on your own anniversary! Thank you SO much for removing the word verification....hopefully it will work as well for you as it has for me, I've had mine off for months and no problems. Darn blogger, lol!

How wonderful. I'm so glad you had such a lovely time with your Aunt and Uncle. 60 years is amazing and that they are so in love still is really wonderful. Love the photo of their wedding party.. and so glad they could all get together for it. Thanks for the info on the word verification "fun" ... I am going to change mine too.. It's so annoying! Congratulations on your own anniversary and glad you could get to catch up with your family. xx

It looks like you all had a great time - and isnt it great that the whole wedding party could get together! I am also finding word verification a real pain in the ...I think I will be removing mine as well.
