my parents wedding, india, 1980.
It’s Dhara’s Appacha + Ahmana’s [her grandparents] wedding anniversary tomorrow, and she wants to wish them a very, very happy anniversary! They’ve spent 31 beautiful years together thus far. Dhara says she’s grateful for the love and cheer that envelopes their home everyday. She couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! She loves you both dearly, along with the rest of us!!!

my parents after their ceremony. in order of appearance: chinamama, my pretty grandmother, my mom, my dad back from the States stylin’ in a linen 3 piece suit, my grandfather, and little 14 year old joji uncle — even though all these people look pretty stoic, they are all very happy inside, I promise.
