100 Years

My great aunt Zelma's 100th birthday party was a wonderful success. So many people, so much love, great food and a gorgeous cake (well, two cakes) and she said she enjoyed every minute of it. 


This is Zelma's portrait that we made a month or so ago, when she was only 99:


And this is one of the photos from the fabulous slide show they put together for the party: my aunt Zelma and her husband Virgil in 1930, before they were married. LOVE this photo.


I feel pretty lucky. 

  • Velma looks like she is in great health and, if I can gauge by this photo, she has all her marbles. What a handsome couple she and her husband-to-be made.

  • Krista

    So cool! She sounds like a neat lady!

  • JoAnn Groth

    You are lucky to have such a spunky Aunt. I love the photo of them it is great!

    Beautiful portrait, Laura! Love seeing both the early years and her 100th year…a lot of life to live…may we all be so fortunate!

  • @Kim: Thank you, agreed!
    @Frank: Zelma DEFINITELY has many, many marbles!
