Time Travel Tuesday


For this week’s time travel we will be traveling back really really far! Travel back to the oldEN days… how did your parents meet? Link up at My Life As Annie and share your parent’s love story.

I may not have all the details straight, but here goes. My mom was still in high school, but my dad had graduated a couple of years before. She was actually dating someone else when my dad caught her attention. She broke up with that guy for my dad, and six months later they were married at her parent's home. My dad was 20 and my mom was 17. They moved into a trailer on the same piece of land their house still stands today.

Very cool! My parents were the same age as yours. I know it's late but I'm gonna go post about my parents!

Amazing how many people got married so young. Amanda is 17 and I cannot imagine her being married (YET)!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I still have not found out officially how my mom and dad met, but I will... Your blog is way cute. Check back Friday at my blog and participate in my Friday meme. It is fun (or at least I think it is :) Blessings

This was such a cute story! I'm amazed at how many happy marriages were started at age 16 or 17! :)

Thank you for visiting my blog!
