In love like grandma and granddad

One day I want to be in love like my Grandma and Pop-Pop.

This is Tom and Bessie. They were married in 1946 after my Pop-Pop returned from fighting in the D-Day invasion on Normandy Beach.

For their first date, Pop-Pop walked from Staten Island to the Bronx to pick Grandma up at her door. He arrived early before my Grandma “had her face on,” which I think still traumatizes her to this day.

Even though she’s almost 90 now, Grandma still tells me that my Pop-Pop was the most handsome man she ever met. ~shared by @stephiexcupcakes
