This past weekend was my parents’ 56th anniversary—56th! You read that right! So that certainly called for a special card. I had in mind that I wanted a card with the their actual wedding date–June 11th, 1960. Now, I have been making them anniversary cards for a few years now and I certainly have KNOWN their anniversary! BUT–it wasn’t until I was creating this card that I realized their anniversary date was a palindrome? That means it is the same forward as backwards—like ‘civic’ and ‘kayak’. Truth is, I don’t know if dates can be palindromes but I am going with it!
Here is the card:(Side note: this card actually has 3 color blues on it….as homage to the fact that my parents at one time had a different color blue on every side of their 4 sided house…..but that is another story!)
Turns out, THEY never knew about this palindrome thing either! If they had, I bet their wedding invites would have looked a lot like this! Or at least their “Save the Date” cards….like anybody needed a card to remember to save the date in 1960….
I also found out this weekend that this date is the date on the iconic Norman Rockwell wedding license picture!
So you can see, it was a match made in heaven—or at least in Olneyville, RI!
Thanks for stopping by.
