grandma and grandpa-1952 [21 Aug 2008|11:05pm]

This photograph was taken over in Germany in 1952 when my grandma and grandpa were around the ages of 19 and 23. He was in the army and I believe she went over to Germany, where he was stationed, to visit. My grandpa told me that while they were there, she had her first taste of beer in one of those German beer mugs (what are those called?) I really love looking at this photograph because I find it so breathtaking. I love the sparkle in their eyes and the way my grandma hair is styled. So 1950s. I'm thinking about getting this printed and framed, but I am not sure where I could do that.

My mom says I am so much like my grandma because I love doing little arts and crafts now and then. My grandma was an artist and would paint many things. She would even paint murals on the walls of their house. My mom used to have some of her paintings but I think my grandpa has them now. I have only seen pictures of them but they were really good.

My grandpa sent me this photo to me awhile back.
I thought I would share it with all of you.
