Story | Vintage Dime

[There are so many stories behind my photos and I'm excited to randomly share them with you.]  

wedding dime for shoe

In addition to something borrowed, blue, old, and new Erica's grandmother wore a lucky dime in her shoe on her wedding day in 1948.  She kept this dime in a tiny box with the inscription, "Something borrowed, something blue, and a piece of silver in your shoe."

In keeping with tradition, Erica's mom wore this same dime in her shoe when she was married. She kept this dime in the vintage box for years, hoping that one day Erica would be able to wear it as well. And on May 3rd, 2014, Erica tucked the dime safely in her shoe as she walked down the aisle, carrying years of family history with her.
