- Bonanza & The Andy Griffith show were the most popular shows on television.
- The 8-track was a new option on many Ford cars.
- “Beam me up scotty” was the phrase out of everyone’s mouths.
- When a man loves a woman, by Percy Sledge was #1 in the music pop charts.
Well, Percy Sledge must have been inspired by the love Mike had for his new bride, Linda.
This past Saturday, their sons, Brian & Ray invited their closest friends and family to celebrate their fifty years of marriage. Fifty years! That’s an impressive amount of time.
My son told me recently that everyone he has met in college comes from a divorced family. I’m not trying to be a downer, but it just shows the truly AMAZINGNESS of the fact that Mike and Linda have woken up every morning in the past 50 years and decided on love. They choose each other every day.
Seriously, is that not beautiful and impressive???
A dear friend of Mike and Linda, Dianne, was not sure what to give them as a gift. She decided to give them the gift of pictures.
Honestly, you should not have an event like this without someone capturing the moments.
As part of their gift, Mike & Linda will receive a mini-session of just the two them celebrating their love.
Thank you Michelle for thinking of VAP when your mom thought of hiring a photographer.
Here are some images of their dinner celebration taken at White Fence Farm restaurant in Romeoville, IL.
They drove up in the exact car they rode in on their wedding day 50 years ago to be surprised by so many people that love them.
