Rich and Lynda go to church with me. They are two of my heroes. This weekend we got to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with them....50 years! That's just one of the reasons they are heroes to me. They are smart and kind and generous and funny...they live the faith they profess! See? Heroes.
See how happy they are?
Rich is a printer and he reprinted EXACTLY, on the very same press, the wedding invitations from 50 years ago, along with their love story beginnings. Their two sweet daughters took care of all the decorations and favors...usually it is snowy in February in our part of the world, so we got beautiful golden snowflakes.
Beautiful cake and when Lynda got her 18 choices narrowed down to 2 the baker chef told her not to worry...one layer was chocolate and one was lemon!
The party was held at the Greenbrier, WV's most famous resort. It's pretty dang fancy.
Here they are with their personalized Wooliness....
...and here it is up close. It is one of my new favorites. See how they are looking lovingly at each other. Well, Lynda lovingly and maybe Rich a little surprised that she would look at him that way. Surprised and happy!
My little husband and I all cleaned up. I did the math and we will be 93 and 99 when it is time for our 50th! I'm thinking we will celebrate that one in Heaven!
Love...find it and hold on!
