Grootouders houden te lieve fotoshoot om hun 63-jarige huwelijk te vieren

Liefde overwint alles. Joe en Wanda Nelson zijn al getrouwd sinds 1952 en nog steeds gek op elkaar. Om hun liefde te vieren, fotografeerde kleindochter Shalyn Nelson de twee tortelduifjes.

Om hun 63-jarige huwelijk te vieren trokken Joe en Wanda hun beste goedje aan voor de lens van Shalyn. De twee ontmoetten elkaar in een tijd vér voor Tinder. Joe zag Wanda lopen over straat, stopte zijn auto, vroeg haar mee uit en de rest is geschiedenis. Zeg nou zelf; van zoveel liefde smelt toch de grootste cynicus?

“Dearest Wanda, it’s been a long time since I have written you a letter. I think it was when I was working in Canada, that I wrote you last. Anyway, I still love you just as much, probably more. The years have gone by fast. One morning you just wake up and you are OLD. Anyway, I wouldn’t trade them for all the gold in Alaska. We had 3 great kids and lots of fun raising them. Most of the time. We carried them to movies, playgrounds, swimming, ballgames, parties, etc. I wish that we could bring back some of those days. Now they have kids of their own which we have watched them grow, and some now with kids of their own. We must be real old. The days we had at the Freez-It at Fairfield and The Dixie Queen at Jewett and built the Rocket Drive-In with a 30’ rocket ship on the roof, those were the very hard years with lots of hard work and no vacations. I still worked my engineering job in Houston thru the week, and weekends at the drive-in businesses. Later, we got smart and got out of the drive in business. Later I retired, and we moved back to Jewett. We got into the ranching business. We made a lake and called it Hidden Lake Ranch. Found out that was a lot of hard work too. Now that we are in our Golden years, I think that we have turned to rust with all the Dr.’s we see. Anyway, I will close this letter to you saying I love you as much today as the day I married you. And just think, the license only cost $2.00. The best bargain I ever made. With all my love for you, Joe.” Happy 65th Anniversary Mamaw and Papaw! I love you both so so so much! 💗 #lifegoals #lovemygrandparents #oldlove #oldlovebook #lovethenelsonsproject
