First of all, I have to say whoops! I know this post is late and also out of order in the 52 weeks series. I noticed I forgot the prompt for week 7 after I had written my post for week 8. I'll get it together at some point here, so please bear with me.
Week 7: Valentine
Is there a love story in your family tree? Maybe a couple was married on Valentine's Day or you have a valentine that one ancestor gave to another. Maybe you have an ancestor named Valentine.
I wanted to shine a light on my father's parents for this prompt. I have been going through a ton of pictures that I recently inherited from my father. Here are a few of from a vacation that Ethel Smith Murrell and Harold Murrell Sr. went on in 1971. I am not sure of the location. It could be Barbados or it could be possibly St. Croix.
Anyway, these two are adorable together.
Harold and Ethel Murrell were married for 64 years. It's sweet to see the love between them in these pictures.
