Happily Ever After...

...or "happiness is being married to your BEST friend".
60 years ago today...
Leo married Irene...
the pretty girl he saw walk by the service station
with her girlfriend.


Hmmm...wonder if he whistled?:)
Anyway, here they are
60 years later,
4 daughters later,
11 grandchildren later,
and lots of great grandchildren later...
still married...
still spending life together with their best friend.


Best friend?
Don't they have other friends?
yes...there have been many for both throughout those 
60 years...
but when all is said and done...
their "bestest friend"...
is the one by their side...
every day...
for 60 years.


What an example for
their daughters...
grandchildren...
great-grandchildren...
and many others who crossed their paths
through the years...
like neighbors,
co-workers,
friends,
campers,
golf buddies,
and choir members...
to name a few.

I think it is probably simple...
don't get married unless it is to your best friend...
and you could happily be by their side for
60 years...
or more.


(See...you can blame them for me believing in 
happily ever after:)
Hey...what did you expect from a girl with a blog called
fairytales and grace?


Happy 60th Anniversary to my mom and dad!
I love you!!!

Suzy
XOXOXOXO
