It has been over a month since I have made an entry in the blog. Life has been busy; my family tree grew a very large branch when I married my best friend of 10 years. Preparing for the wedding took up loads of time and to top things off a tree fell on our house just 2 weeks after the ceremony.
I have been packing up and saving items from the wedding, keepsakes to pass down as things have been passed to me. I hope that the wedding bouquet jewelry that was in my bouquet will be used by our granddaughter for her wedding. It would be a nice tradition.
One of the things that I have inherited is a box of flowers that came from my great grandmother’s wedding June 15, 1899, when Josephine S. Davis married George Arthur West. Josephine’s brother, William “Will” Davis had kept the small box of flowers and passed them on to my grandfather, Chester Davis West in the 1960s.
We have some of our flowers drying that I will place in a box and save. I wonder if they will last 110 years like the ones I hold in my hand now.
