Wedding Rings

21/365 - 31st Year

photo hunt

This week's theme on Photo Hunt is "anniversary," and this was the first image that came to my mind. I took this 21 January 2009 as my photo for the day on my Project 365. 21st of January is important to the family because it was when my parents celebrated their anniversary. Although my dad was already up in heaven the time I took this picture, it was really touching that my mom still has the wedding rings, which a friend custom made for them using my dad's coin collection.

I am a big fan of my parents' love story. It's not something you will get to see in movies, but it was unique in itself. They only got to share a life together for 29 years, but it was a very well lived life.

WOW! What a beautiful tribute to your parents love. This photo is fantastic and now I want to make one of my own. Hope you don't mind me "borrowing" your idea. :)

I'm up and would love to have company. The Misplaced Midwesterner
