This week, I wanted to share with you a newspaper clipping from 1938!
I’m not sure when or from whom I got this, but it is very special to me and, no, it’s never been in ANY scrapbook.
Some of you have met my Yaya HERE. If not, she is my 93 year old Greek grandmother.
She was married to Gus, whom you may have met in a previous ‘Fro post HERE.
This is their marriage announcement from the newspaper!
So many things strike me about this announcement. I love the way it reads “the attractive daughter”. You don’t see that written today. It reminds me I need to ask my dad why they got married in NYC. And, wow, they got married June 19 and “are expected to return…..August 1”. A six week honeymoon, folks!!!
I love that she is just as beautiful today as she was then.
And it makes me hope there are more photos somewhere of their wedding and travels. Because THAT should be in a scrapbook!
So as we keep the ‘Fro going….head on over to Marcy’s HERE and check out more of the Sincerely ‘Fro Me to You posts.
