Last weekend was so special! We celebrated my grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary!
But we clean up well when we want to! ;)
What can I say about these two? PawPaw, son of Italian immigrants (youngest of TWELVE), born and raised in Oakfield, NY, joined the Army and made his way south. Mimi, youngest of NINE, borned and raised in Sweetwater, AL, stayed close to home. Their paths crossed, and at 22, Mimi took a bus to New OR-leans, and PawPaw HITCH-HICKED to meet her, where they wed the next day at a local lawyers office! The rest as they say, is history. Sweet, precious history.
Mimi and PawPaw and their offspring, each so special to me in their own way (especially my sweet mama!)
Along with our feast of BBQ and pasta (it goes perfect together, trust me) there was this beautiful wedding cake....along with four other cakes that left us worthless for the afternoon!
And where there's a wedding/anniversary celebration....you know we gotta do this!
So with that, my sweet grandparents, congratulations on 60 amazing years, I'll see yall later, and Ciao! XOXO
