Silver and coral




Our son had waved to us on the scan.
It gave us the impetus we needed
to legalise a relationship 
that was already ten years established.
So twenty five years later
we have arrived at our official
silver wedding anniversary
and our unofficial coral anniversary.
I once had a beautiful silver and coral necklace from P.
I would have worn it today but it was stolen.




No matter. 




We're still smiling.

  19. I never would have found this lovely post if I had not tagged you.
    So, thank you for humouring me. I had only 120 posts to choose from. 800-odd does sound forbidding! Congratulations on your 25 plus years! I love the old photos, and the new.

  20. Now this is why my mother always told me to read everything first. I just realized that your silver wedding anniversary post was a very recent one, and I would have found it easily in my weekly catch-up on your blog. Silly me!
