…that my parents got married! If you’ve been following along for a while, you might recall that they were debate partners and high school sweethearts. Here’s their prom picture from 1966, my mom’s senior year, to jog your memory:
This weekend my siblings and I threw them an anniversary party, which you’ll read more about in coming days. In preparation for the event I spent a lot of time digging through the basement, scanning photos and hunting for video, and I managed to turn up a reel of super 8 film that my mom’s uncle shot on the day of their wedding. I had it converted, then edited it down (read: removed the really, really dark parts) and made a little movie to show at the party. It’s a bit fuzzy, but it’s a fun watch — especially if you know my family. My mom has, apparently, always been a total ham. Enjoy!
