On a list of my top 10 obscure interests, somewhere on the list you'd find the Kennedys. For as long as I can remember, I've been so captivated by the invincibility and allure of the family... the political ambition, the scandal, the beauty, the charisma. I recently watched the Kennedy's miniseries on my apple TV and it totally reinvigorated my obsession... after the dust settles on the next few crazy weeks, I'll be diving back into a library of Kennedy biographies!
Meanwhile, on this day in 1953, the ever-charming JFK proposed to sweet and enigmatic Jackie. In honor of their sweet and seemingly-innocent betrothal, here's a crop of adorable photos chronicling their relationship... [thanks to kennedys.tumblr.com!]
From their honeymoon in Acapulco in September, 1953, Jack writes, “At last I know true meaning of rapture, Jackie is enshrined forever in my heart - thanks Mom and Dad for making me worthy of her. Your loving son Jack.”
The couple was notorious for their secrecy and elusiveness, so I feel like the captured moments of their stolen glances and endearing smiles are so precious.
Okay, I'm stopping...
