These hung on my Grandma's wall next her bed.
They were all from my Grandpa.
As a little girl staying the night at Grandma's,
I would always ask her to take them off the wall
so I could look at them.
she was 16 and he was 17.....
They got arrested on their wedding night!
It was illegal to elope back then.
Front page news on the Des Moines paper!
On their 50th wedding anniversary my Grandpa brought a tin plate....
It was the plate he ate off of, that night in jail!
"His wedding supper plate"
He had kept it all those years!
How's that for a romantic Valentines story!
Oh and now the Valentines hang on my bedroom wall.
Linking to these parties today!
