Photo Friday ~ Another Wedding in Spain

My mother-in-law has a stash of photos in her apartment in Spain, and the lovely thing is that most of those photos are labeled!  Look at this one. It was carefully labeled with the date, place and a list of the food they ate at the wedding lunch. The image below is a photo of a photo, but when you are traveling you do what you have to do when you find a family photograph like this one:

On the right side of the table the last three people are my Mother-in-law, her mother Consuelo Martin (Vincent's grandmother), and her father (Vincent's grandfather Jose Garcia.

  1. How cool that she took the time to write so many details on the photos! The one thing I encountered with many family photos was mislabeling or no labeling, so it's always nice to have something that really captures the moment.
