From Michelle in Wisconsin –
In our family lore, we have a lightning bug love story that happened some 70+ years ago. One night, when my Mom & Dad were still teenagers, they were out walking and my Dad caught a lightning bug. He used its lantern to trace a glowing line around my mother’s ring finger. Then he vowed “Here’s the first of many rings to prove how much I love you.”
To celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary, we filled the hall with jars of firefly lights – for our family, fireflies will always go hand-in-hand with romance.
