Day 7: A Photo That Makes You Happy

Every photo has a story behind it.

A simple photo of my husband and I tells a happy story of a night we will never forget.

(Forgive the grainy picture.  Apparently my scanner stinks, too.)

My brother and sister in law were married on September 22, 2001.

11 days after 9/11.

Most of the wedding guests who lived many states away canceled their airline reservations, but drove the distance (many, many hours) to celebrate.

And celebrate we did.

We had so much fun at this wedding and reception.

Everyone felt relief, as if it were finally OK to breath and let loose after a very stressful week and a half.

We celebrated love.

We celebrated life.

We celebrated freedom.

    That was such a hard time in our history. I’m glad that your family was able find a reason to celebrate.

    Thanks for coming by and wishing me a happy birthday. 🙂

    It’s always interesting to hear the story behind the picture. And it’s always nice to hear how people found renewal, hope, and joy in that difficult time.
