My parents have been married for 30 years today!!!!

Hi all,

So its a pearl wedding anniversary in my household today!!!!! Here are some pictures of my folks wedding 30 years ago, today October 31 in Lusaka, Zambia.

Signing the registry....
cutting the cake

The wedding party....
So cute......

Had to add this photo coz my mom's shoe game was on lock-down!!!!!!! not to mention that Afro was fierce.
My parents and I - I am sticking my tongue out, but I was still cute!!!!! With my Buddha belly and all. Check my mom's hat y'all and my dad had my swagger, or maybe I got his!!!!!!
So my parents had three wedding ceremonies, one at the magistrate, one at Swapo headquarters in Zambia and then after they came back to Namibia, did they renew their wedding in a church. Also, since both my parents were in exile at the time, non of my grandparents nor family were in attendance, however, my fathers father did ask my mothers fathers for permission that those two could marry. And my mom still kept the letter. And she has a few that her parents wrote to each-other when they were courting!!!!! We are a family of letter writers hahhahaha lol.

ohhhhh, so what did I get my folks, well, I got my mom some silver and pearl earrings and well, for both my folks I got them some fancy drinking glasses even though my folks don't touch the sweet nectar, over here you can get alcohol free champagne, which they like. Its hard to buy for a man!!!!!! And he already has everything else, how many ties, watches, business card holders, coffee mugs, cuff links, wallets can I girl really buy?

So yep, that's it. In our house, celebrations go like this -January (New Years), March (mothers birthday), May (Mothers day and my birthday), June (Father's day), July (father and brothers birthdays - 26 & 27 ), October (sister and parents anniversary).Then Christmas is pretty close afterwards lol.

Blessings, Love and Celebrations.
