50th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

Celebration: Mr. G’s Supper Club in Chicago, IL

• Carennea is a retired teacher for Chicago Public Schools. James is a printer at RR Donnelley. Carennea and James met at age 21. With his upstanding ethics, James made a lasting impression on his sweetheart. They wed at 23 and today, Carennea remains grateful her prayers for a good man were answered.

He knew he was in love when…

He decided to ask me to go steady with him. Back then, that’s what we called it.

She knew she was in love when…

She first laid eyes on him at the church picnic.
 
In 10 years we will…

Still be in love and looking forward to our 60th year of marriage.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

About her husband sooner, but it was all done at God’s timing.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Cooking. He loves Carennea’s cooking and she loves to see him eat it happily because it’s made with love, especially after 50 years.

Our nicknames for each other are…

He is “Honey” because he is just so sweet and he calls her “Baby” because she is kind of short.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

At church because that is where we first met so long ago.

Our song is…

“I Stand Accused” by Isaac Hayes and “Order My Steps.”

Our perfect date night is…

Dinner at our favorite restaurant Whitney’s or me cooking a fabulous dinner and just watching him eat.
