shameless self promotion: 408 in a series.

wedding day

My Dad is currently purging years of accumulated stuff -- and giving some of it to me, as one does. This was taken on my grandparents' wedding day. What you can't tell from the photo is how teeny tiny they are. My grandmother was, maybe, 5 feet tall on her very best day. My grandfather couldn't have been that much taller.


How I wound up as tall as I am is still something of a mystery.*


* There is some height on my mother's side but I'm still among the tallest. 


I love the way the photographer arranged her dress into a swirl. My grandmother's wedding picture is the same.

I didn't love it enough to get a full length wedding dress myself, but the next time I wear a floor length dress, I hope I remember to take a picture like that.
