Pink Saturday



Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday!!
Today I want to share one of my most favorite pink
treasures....
I found this frame at a Home Goods store last year,
it was appropriately named "Boardwalk"
I knew when I saw it I had just the perfect picture for it......
My parents married in 1946........
a short time after they met........
She was a waitress
at a small diner across the street from
the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk........
just 18 years old........
and he was a driver for Greyhound bus lines........
They raised 6 children......
and were married for 54 years......
she passed away in 2000.....
he passed just 3 short months later.....
I have no doubt they are together now.....
playing on the beach somewhere.......
and having a wonderful time....

What a lovely story of your Mom and Dad. The photo frame is perfect for that photo of the two of them. How wonderful to have such a lovely memory and treasure to go with it.


Have a Blessed Easter.
