If the wedding dress fits...

Saturday, August 31, 2013

My daughter came over today and we found my wedding dress. I weigh today what I weighed on my wedding day, so we decided I should try it on.

Here's a photo of me almost 36 years ago with my Dad.

Here are two of me today.

My husband came in while we were taking the pictures and got misty-eyed. The lace has yellowed, but it fits. The sands of time have shifted things about somewhat, though. Providentially, the marriage is in much better shape than the dress. emoticon

    emoticon I love this blog! I have my wedding dress that I wore 20 years ago. I thought maybe one of my girls would want to wear it or use parts of it.

You look as beautiful now as you did when you got married. No wonder your husband got misty eyed! emoticon

    That is the nicest thing! Big pat on the back for you!
I think you are more beautiful now actually. (And I think DH agrees, how sweet is that, btw?)

    How nice! Aren't you brave and strong to re-photograph yourself and much the photos.
This could only mean one thing: you are in a "good shape"
many wishes for the rest of your lives together with your DH

    You look beautiful..then and now. Isn't that wonderful that you fit your dress? That was a spectacular dress. Your maintenance is going well! 36 years of marriage is great. We are in the 44 th year.
