Just the mere sight of this picture makes my heart happy. It’s a picture of my Grandparents shortly after they were married 65 years ago! They had a small civil ceremony in New York City, packed up their car and moved out to California the very next day.
This is a picture of them standing in front of their very first apartment on the UCLA campus where my grandfather as well as many other generations of my family attended school. I love this picture. They look proud, in love and full of optimism and zest for life.
Growing up, my Grandparent’s house was my favorite place in the world. We lived about an hour and a half away and as I little girl I remember thinking “as soon as I get my driver’s license, I’ll drive here every weekend so I can spend the night.”
I’m so lucky to have them in my life. I look forward to celebrating with them and my family in the near future to commemorate their 65 years of marriage!
