love, LOVE! | lasting marriages

It's no secret we love LOVE.  & of course, weddings.  Weddings are the ultimate celebration of love, but after that, comes marriage...  

Sadly, today, enduring, solid & loving marriages seem to be somewhat rare.  That said, I feel it's important to take a personal moment to honor the life & legacy of my wonderful grandparents and their epic love story.  

My "Mogee & Pogee" were married for an unbelievable 68 years!  A few weeks ago, at 92 years young, my beautiful, fun, spunky grandmother passed away.  Only a short couple weeks later, her loyal life partner & soul mate, my warm, kind, gentle grandfather died of a heart attack at the age of 94.  

As heartbreaking as it was to lose these two within a couple weeks, knowing they are re-united is comforting, beautiful, and inspiring all at the same time.  We are lucky to have enjoyed their presence, their bond, and their real-life love over the years. They will be sorely missed, but the legacy they have left behind is fairy-tale perfect.

In the spirit of appreciating lasting marriages, I find this is too cute not to share.  I am inspired by the captured magic of these real couples and their love and commitment. So special! 

I would like to thank everyone for their condolences & well wishes during this difficult time.  We are blessed beyond belief and humbled by this enduring love story.  May we all be so lucky!
