29 Years Ago Today...
Mom got dressed up in--to my best photo recollections--an orange and yellow pants outfit.
They were headed out on the river, and Mom always told me that it had been windy and the water had been rough all day--until right before they were supposed to go out on the boat--and then the river turned to glass.
So they got on their friends' boat, with a couple of witnesses and someone 'official.'
And they got married in the middle of the Mississippi River. Or as close to the middle as they were allowed to with the Marriage License stipulations.
It was the perfect wedding by their telling--the way all weddings should be. Simple, unique, theirs.
I wish they could tell that story to me together today--with one starting where the other left off....
