LOVE AND MARRIAGE, NO MATTER THE AGE!

Yesterday, my sister-in-law got married! She is 79 and the groom is 81. They met at church after both their spouses from long-term marriages had passed away.
The ceremony was held in the groom's beautiful backyard. Both families furnished the food -- all simple from family favorite recipes. No caterers--no special themes or decorations--and we certainly didn't dance into the night!
There was a traditional wedding cake made by the bride's sister to be cut and shared.
It was a special celebration joining two extended families. PLUS, the groom got a new 98-year-old mother-in-law in the deal!!!

They both look younger to me! Beautiful day to be out celebrating.

School tomorrow, but the painting isn't finished. Ran out of primer and energy. Had a house full of family and friends yesterday, so am just puttering with music, books, and such this afternoon.♥♫
