Special Day (Weekend Reflections # 3)

You may need to click and enlarge the pictures for a better view of the reflections of 19th century portraits of a woman in the top photo, and a man in the bottom photo


This is a very special weekend for me. On Saturday October 10th 1987 Vicki and I were married. 22 years later and I can honestly say that I've never been happier. I just realized that we have been married for most of our lives.

So today I have his and her's reflections. I took these pictures at the New York Metropolitan Museum. I figured that they might come in handy someday.

There is a good chance that I'll be away from the computer on Saturday, but please comment amongst yourselves while I'm away. :-)
Happy Anniversary Vicki!

Well...
Cats seem not to recognize themselves in front of a mirror, so we can't really join this meme, but we do appreciate your reflection posts, they're so interesting!
God bless you!

Happy Anniversary to James & Vicky! May you have many many more!

Sistertex said...

Hi James,
Thanks for visiting - nope this time it was not a 'planned' event, just kind of happened. Though once I saw the photo I thought it was interesting. Just by luck this time, but now I plan to try and 'think' about it more often since you started me thinking about 'reflections' a little bit more.
Thanks!
