Rachel, Day by Day
It’s time for another double take! Here are my wonderful grandparents, John and Jean. These photos are 57 years apart. Isn’t that incredible? For the photo on the left, I think they were going to a wedding together back in 1948. They were dating at the time since they didn’t get married until 1951. I love this photo; my grandma looks so beautiful and I love her hat! My grandpa is very handsome, too. He looks awesome in his sunglasses. I love the old car in the background, too.
For the photo on the right, we were all celebrating the new year (2005) at my mom’s house. Look how cute they look 57 years later! I always loved hearing my grandpa talk about how he was courting my grandma. Those stories are priceless.
This blog post is dedicated to my grandma. Today would have been her 87th birthday. I miss her every day, as do all my other family members. She was a wonderful woman. Every time someone calls me Rach, I think of her. She was one of the few people to call me that. I loved sleepovers at my grandparents house growing up and I loved our games nights. We even bought my grandma and automatic card shuffler one year since she had a hard time with it. Such good times!
I promise to update again soon!
