This is a picture of my grandparents, Peggy and Gene, shortly after they were married in 2009.
My maternal grandfather passed away when I was around 10 years old, and I was never convinced that my grandmother would find someone else again. However, these two first met at a dance one Friday night, and only a few months later, were married. It truly was love at first sight.
They were married at our church in front of a small group of family and friends, and then left for Myrtle Beach on their honeymoon. Since then, they have traveled all over the country, enjoying life as much as they can. When they’re not off on an adventure, you’ll usually find them spending time with their grandchildren (me!), or at the lake fishing and boating. These two are a great example of true love and happiness.
I was inspired to use this photo for this assignment, because I thought it accurately represented what “love at first shot” actually looks like, and because of the backstory, I know it is true. This is one photo of several that my grandparents have taken over the years, and I think this is the one that is most effective, as it shows what true happiness and love looks like. I found this picture stored on my computer, along with several others that are similar, and uploaded it here to WordPress. I am glad I found this picture and was able to talk about it for this assignment, as I got the joy out of seeing them again, and allowing their story to be told to others.
