Lynn

Kittrell, NC(Zone 7b)

Lynn, you have one of the few!! Gotta love him!

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

I do,I do!! Nice to see you here Melanie ^_^.

Kittrell, NC(Zone 7b)

Yes, I've been gone for a little while. You will see why on the other thread. But your hubby is awesome. If I came home and found flowers the first thing I'd ask is What did you do!! LOL!

Montgomery, AL

Lynn, I have three teenage daughters. It sounds like you two are newlyweds. Oh, my husband of 18 years just walked by and I showed him the picture of the arranged flowers that your DH gave you (hint, hint). Of course, if my husband gave me flowers he would expect something in return!

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

Jamie,
I would love to see a picture of your daughters.We are newlyweds.....40 years June 25th. ^_^.

Montgomery, AL

Wow, congratulations! Yours sounds like a real love story that should be recorded for the grandchildren. My mother-in-law (GranDD, short for Dorothy Duncan) is a wonderful soul who delights the grans with her 'you must know your family history' stories. (I like them too).

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

I love Love, among everything else that grows and flows (wine) -- Lilly of the Valley. north we hade many under the trees also violets. Chris would always bring in bunches of both for as long as they bloomed. Now mind you that was tideous picking.Then of course Peonies and irises.....He was good that way too. Would be married 55 years this year.

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

Helene,
That is such a beautiful story!! I know you will always hold those memories in your heart.

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

Like in your marriage, we were pals for almost 60 years. After 3 years of dating/ courting I told him "Me or your Mother". he lived with his than aging mother they shared an Apt. We had no $$$ so we would move in with my parents, well that's how it was than.There was the sister's houshold she than moved into and was very useful in taking care of her 3 children,cleaning and gardening and the sister could go to work come home to a nice cooked meal...... No day care than as You know.

We did have a good size wedding. Honeymooned in Europe for a month mostly with Fam., were now broke and came home to live with may parents for free so we could recoup and get an Apt. than house, than house in the country. It's called passages of life.

Montgomery, AL

I love how everyone (family) really relied on one another. It must have been so great seeing Europe like that, in families homes. Which countries did u travel through? Your story is super romantic too, Helene.

Chicago, IL(Zone 6a)

This truly is a wonderfully romantic story, Helene!

I actually grew up in Germany and I have seen American couples honeymooning in Europe. So romantic...

Both of us are from what was Yugoslavia, however Chris and I met here in NYC. His Momma - there were 5 Siblings all in Germany, also had a brother with Fam. So it was Obligatory to visit with all of them and their married kids. Every one so wanted to please us. It was totally boring.
Not knowing each other in Germany but both lived there for about 3 or 4 years before immigrating.
I was 99 lbs when we got married. I did'nt take time to eat always wanted to be somewhere else, doing somthing. Coming home to NY After the HM I was 115 lbs. 3 years later after the first DD shot up in weight - I can't tell....
We actually stayed 10 days in Austria, Salzburg (The sound of Music) and on the "Mond See" Moon Lake.That was Luxurious. Went Ball Room Dancing in Salzburg, we both were good dancers. skinny dipping in the lake - we were young and a bit wild....Lived to the fullest within reason however. Not one regret.

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

Am i hoging this thread?
Can I bore you with another pretty story? Another passage in my life.
While on Honeymoon - my Girlfriend from german school arranged to have her wedding in the time we were in europe. We had the first born at the same time. She only had a Son. I had 2 DD. aftter the kids, we lost track of each other. I eventually forgot her married name, she lost our address... After 45 years - 3 years ago we connected again (through a young man whom I baby sat - another pretty story) so 2 years ago she, her DH and her Son and his Family came here to Longboat Key to vacation and stayed for 3 weeks. They were 8 peeps. They stay in Condos across the street on the ocean.
As we speak ,they are en route to repeat said vacation. Will be here 18 days.Again in same condos
Pretty story.

Oh Helene, how beautiful. You really must write it all down for the grandchildren. My mother-in-law had their history bound into a book for all of us. What a treasure. She has early Alzheimers now and we are so grateful that she did this when she still could.

Montgomery, AL

That's wonderful!!!

Chicago, IL(Zone 6a)

I've been to Salzburg on several occasions during my childhood. It's a charming town. Love the fortress and old town. I also remember Mondsee. It's a very nice area of Austria.

And again: Your stories are so nice and romantic. Seems like the world was moving at a different pace back then. Thanks for sharing your memories!
