50 years and counting...

50 years!!! I cant even imagine it. We have been married for 21 years and every day feels like a gift...even the tough ones. Can't imagine what 50 will feel like.  But this sweet couple on our blog sure can! Their precious children & grandchildren joined together and brought them to Saint George Island to vacation with the rest of the family.  What a precious gift! And we got to capture it. What? How lucky are we? It is so special to us when we get to photograph a couple for their anniversary, especially when so much of their family is present to celebrate their "stick-too-it-tivness".  Surely, that's a word! We never take it for granted when we get to photograph a couple, who has pushed through hard times and stayed together for so many years.  We know firsthand that staying married is hard some days, or weeks, or years. We are always excited when we get to meet a couple that has defied the odds and loved each other through tough times. So...with that said, we applaud this lovely couple on our blog today and celebrate their choice to stay married!  What a gift for all of their family members.  A beautiful legacy they are leaving.
