This session was a dream.
Let me start by saying their sweet, sweet son Dustin, gifted them with this anniversary session. THE SWEETEST YA'LL <3
We had so much fun during this session. Julie was very much into her creative side and came prepared! LOVE IT. They were completely natural in front of the camera. They exuded love and romance. They made me want to work harder at my marriage ya'll. This is what 40 years looks like.
Roger and Julie Kindly gave me a snippet of their story to share. <3. Prepare yourself.
" Our love story began on December 14, 1974. Roger and Julie met at the Sam Rayburn basketball tournament. Julie was talking to another boy and then they got to talk for a short time before her basketball team left to go home. After Julie got home she told her mother about the boy she met. Her mother encouraged her to write him a letter to Delmar School where he attended. Julie could only remember his name was Roger Mc….? She looked in the tournament program to get his full name.Julie wrote the first letter to Roger on December 16, 1974 c/o Delmar High School. Shortly afterward Roger wrote Julie back and they continued to write off and on through high school. One week they would receive 2 letters and the next week 3 letters. The price of a stamp was 10 cents.
The second time they saw each other was when Delmar School went to the Bonham Skating Rink in March of 1975. Julie’s parents brought her to the skating rink. So this was the first time Roger met her parents. Later that summer they started going to the race track in Bells with Roger’s family.
Roger and Julie’s story continued with a lot of letters and a few long distance phone calls (once a week). There were no cell phones or computers to e-mail with.
They got married on June 2, 1978 at DeShong Chapel in Paris, TX. Their first home was in Brookston, TX. All their neighbors referred to them as the “the Kids”. They paid $50.00 a month for their rent and Roger was making $2.00 an hour working at Sambo’s Restaurant.
Their love story continues on as they build new memories to cherish with their 3 children and 8 grandchildren. They love spending time together even if it is working in the garden or hiking the Harding Ice Field in Alaska. They give God the glory for the love he put in them for each other and putting them together. They hope and pray that their children and grandchildren may know the love of God and find their perfect mate.
And now they are ready to write their next chapter…..
Just Married 40 years."
