A very long time ago....50 years exactly to this date...there once was a couple who was brave enough to be married on the superstitious date of Friday the 13th. Legend has it that these 2 are still happily married to THIS DAY!
These 2 are truly amazing people! I feel privileged to have had them in my life for the past 20 years. Steve is a large of part of who he is because of them. They are wonderful examples and we couldn't have asked for more supportive parents. Even though they live thousands of miles away, they make it a priority to be at every baptism, baby blessing, or any other special event in our family.
Next month (our spring break), our family will head up to Washington to celebrate with family and friends the 50th anniversary of this marriage! Steve and I can both remember attending each one of our grandparents 50th wedding anniversaries and we both remember what a special event each one was and we're so grateful our children will have their own memories of this special occasion with their own grandparents!
So, here’s to you two, George Philip and Barbara Allene Hartman! May you continue to be blessed in your posterity and have many more days of health and fun!
Oh, I checked to see if that “Shot Gun Wedding” at Raw Hide, Arizona at Dad’s 70th birthday party bash was legal and binding in all 50 states, including Puerto Rico…………………..it is.
