My Mother at 18

My Mom at age 18, snapped by my Dad on the beach.
She still looks almost the same!
But even better, they're both in their 60s and still happily married.

That's what you call "natural beauty"

Kathleen said...

Wow, beautiful and smart. You have to be proud. My Mom was also beautiful and smart. I miss her terribly.

I just recently found my mothers formal bridal portrait. I am now looking for just the right frame to make it fit on the "wall of fame" on my staircase. It's so wonderful to be able to see what they loked like in their carefree days. Your mother is beautiful :)

Hmmm, I was just thinking... My parents have old photos of themselves around, but they're all in black and white. Just like the TV we had when I was a kid. When did the world turn color???

Being married that long is an ever-increasing rarity in America. Out of all my friends, only one besides myself have parents that are still married - to each other! My parents celebrated their 44 year aniversary last month. WOW!

Mike, It IS such a rarity, isn't it? And they're so well-paired together. It's not one of those 'marriages of convenience' where they put up with each other only.

Daniel, ;o)

Susie!!!, yeah...she DOES look naked. I know she wasn't, because she would've been mortified. My mom is a very modest soul.

Uncle Joe, ;o)

3 Score & 10, thank you!

TSB, isn't it? We have pics of HER mom when she was very young, too. I love those pics.

Kathleen, you're correct. Beautiful AND smart. I'm so sorry for your loss. I didn't know...

Amstaff Mom, you know, you're right! I hadn't thought to express that, but you're right.

Bryan, ;o) thank you.

How nice That really is a sweet image. Thanks again for sharing part of yourself with us in blogland. My favorite post of all time was Saur takes on NASA but I look forward to each post. Did you listen to the John Cleese tapes yet?

Fred said...

Great pic and nice to know they're still together. My folks have been together for 56 years and they're still going strong.

Eddo said...

Yes, very beautiful.

Ellen said...

How wonderful to be immortalized so radiantly.... we should all be so lucky.
She is a beautiful woman, and I'll bet it goes farther than skin deep.... as you can see it in her expression.
