Happy Valentine's Day

In honor of valentine's day, I'm posting this photo of my Grandfather Phil and Grandmother Doris, on their wedding day. They knew each other a very short time before getting married, and then my Grandpa was off to the Navy to fly planes in WWII. Their marriage produced four sons, and ended only with my Grandmother's death, when I was thirteen. The dress my Grandma is wearing in this photo is hanging in my mother's closet in Santa Barbara, it is dark blue velvet with cream colored lace details. I remember being allowed to try it on when I was a girl, and I didn't want to take it off.
