Wistful Wednesday: June 6 1998

Fifteen years ago our youngest daughter married Andy.


Jen had just graduated from Bemidji State University and was headed to Mankato to get her Master of Fine Arts in English.

Andy had graduated earlier from BSU.  He bought a house in Hector Minnesota and was working in the cities.


Starting their new life together.

  I was in charge of the flowers.  I ordered all the bouquets and corsages made, and a bucket of cut flowers to arrange into bouquets for the alter and for decorating the cake.



Savannah and Trica

Savannah was the flower girl, she was not yet two years old.  She flew down the aisle because I had gum and she knew it.  Maddie was only six weeks old and in the photos she is all wrapped up in blankets.

Rachael (our niece), Far Guy and Jacob (our nephew).

Jacob was the ring bearer.  Both he and his sister have now graduated from college.

Back in June of 1998 Far Guy and I had just sold our home in Harwood North Dakota, and barely finished moving everything we owned into storage on June 1.  Later in the  Fall of 1998 we would begin to clear the land for our greenhouse business and home here in the boonies.

Fifteen years seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye!  Happy Anniversary Andy and Jen! :)
