Oh I love these photos, that 1st one is the ultimate classic..so sweet.
Life has such a great collection of vintage photos.
CONGRATS on your up and coming wedding.
I'm getting hitched on June 20th....eeeeeek. I'm excited but nervous. We are also having an outdoor wedding right on a cliff above the ocean...should be beautiful. I was at first going to have just immediate family but now all my aunts and uncles are coming..lol, oh well. So its not as tiny as I wanted it as both my mom and dad have massive families. 12 on my mom's side, 13 on dad's...ugghh..haha, i love them all though.
i'm only inviting one pair of friends, might just have a little party for the others.
I wish you the best in yours!! Sounds romantic!! hope there are not too many bugs, i might have the same issue...eeek

Great imagery...thank you! A day to forget our political persuasion but remember above all...we are American!

Happy memorial day to you, too! Unfortunately, it's not a holiday here in HK, but I still appreciate it.

I love the top photo. An absolute clasic. It was taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt, great photographer. I just posted one of his photos on my blog - of kids watching the street puppet theatre in Paris. He was just wonderful at catching the moments. Hope you had a great weekend! xoxo
