This is the engagement picture of my husband and I taken in fall/winter of 1997. I purchased a 10 x 13 frame for an 8 x 10 photo and put mementos of our engagement around the photo.
At the bottom left is a picture of my first bouquet and the actual card that came with the flowers. Going clockwise is a rose petal, the title of a Chamber Choir we went to see, a bowling pass, part of the program from a dinner theatre, the Blockbuster logo [we watched videos a lot], ticket stubs from a play, more rose petals, a cut out from our first church sweetheart banquet, a picture of the Easter basket he gave me, another rose petal, the ticket stub from a local high school play, one more ticket stub, and across the bottom is the top of the fudge box that my engagement ring was hidden in.
Can you tell what we liked? No sports tickets…it was over winter anyway.
This hangs in my bedroom and reminds me of the first good times we had together. I could tell you lots more stories based on the things in the frame, but I’ll leave you hanging for now.
P.S. My hair is nothing like that right now; and he has a flat top.
