Happy 50th Anniversary!!!

Well, it's hard to believe, but November 6th will be our 50th Wedding Anniversary!!  Where has all the time gone!  It was 1965 and a much different world that existed then.  We were just these young kids that fell in love and thought we would conquer the world as we lived on love!!

We got married in our local church with friends and family joining in our celebration.  Joe worked as an automobile mechanic and I at a local Pharmaceutical Co.  We rented this TINY apartment and thought it was a castle - because it was all ours!  I remember the rent was $125 a month and we were so nervous that we would not be able to meet that commitment.  The Vietnam War was raging on and many of our friends were affected by this.  I also remember the big "Black Out" of the East Coast happened a few days after our wedding and the Beetles were making their way into the US.  Life was so different back then.  No cell phones or internet.  TV was the big entertainment then along with the movies!

Our oldest daughter Margaret was our first miracle born to us in 1966.  Our second daughter Jeannie was our next miracle who came along in 1968.  That would complete our family.  Who would have thought all those years ago that we would become Grandparents of three wonderful Granddaughters!
Rachel Morgan was born April 30, 2000, Sarah Mae was born March 25, 2002 and then on October 31, 2013 Jennifer Faith was born to complete our family.  We feel so blessed to be able to enjoy these girls!!

We didn't have a honeymoon 50 years ago as money was short, so we are on our way out the door to enjoy the mountains and foliage and some down time.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing our memories!
Nancy and Joe
