Forty-two Years

Today Tom and I are marking forty-two years since our wedding March 29, 1969, in Puyallup, WA.
The Puyallup Valley was known for its daffodil bulb fields, and the Daffodil Festival, so for our March wedding daffodils were our flowers and yellow was our color.
My three sisters and two brothers were in the wedding party, along with Tom's brother and two cousins.
The cake looked traditional, but with a fresh flower topper, and CHOCOLATE inside, it was on the cutting edge for the times.
It has been a great forty-two years, and we look forward to many more good years together.

  3. Wonderful photos. I do love daffodils except I don't much like their smell. Hope you weren't over powered with so many daffadils in one place.

    I hope you have many more anniversaries to come.

  7. Happy anniversary Linda. Wonderful photos and it sure brings back memories of my sisters wedding. The umpire waist and the daisies as well as the colors were the same. I wore yellow as her maid of honor. Fun memories. My hubby and I celebrated our 30th on the 23rd of this month.

    By the way, I don't know how you are related to Jessica Norquist, but she is dating my nephew (on my husbands side), Mark Evans. Small world!
