Time Travel...

Putting together
pictures for a slideshow at the
wedding has meant
diving into
piles and piles of
old photos.
Its felt overwhelming at
times,
but has been more
fun than
anything.
So, I thought I would
share some of the
pictures...



Here I am...
only a few months old.
Bright and alert, of course!


I was born about one
month before my
parents' second
anniversary.
I am told that I was
"kind of the second born child"
since my Mom already had a
dog she
loved.
:-P


I love the look of
old photos...
I also love the little
dresses my
Mom put me
in!


See what I mean?!
Who doesn't love to see
littles girls in
pink dresses?
:-)


Apparently
"Beauty and the Beast"
was already my
favorite Walt Disney
Princess movie.

Still is!
"Tangled" comes in
second.
*runs and hides from avid "Tangled" fans*


Oh... the good old days when
I looked cute in
pigtails!
;-)


Ye old bangs...
I'm one of those people who can
figure out about how
old I am in pictures by how my
hair is cut!


Playing outside...
always loved the
outdoors.
I have very few memories of my
childhood that
DON'T include either
being outside
or
reading a book.


Oh look!
No bangs!


I still make this expression...
Some things never change.


And I still love
warm, yummy
sweaters!


I had to include this pic...
Dolly was my
favorite pet
EVER.
She was a blue-hooded rat and,
for two years,
she spent at least some time
every day with
me.
Most people were
freaked out by her...
but she was
wonderful! 


Dressing up has
also always been a great
love of
mine.


Ohhh... and off was cut the
maiden's long
tresses.
I had my hair layered for a little over a
 year.
I liked it quite a bit...
on the days that my hair
did what it was supposed to do!
;-)


And a little over a year
later...
my hair grew out pretty fast.


Sweet Sixteen here!
I can't believe how fast the
years have gone by
since then!
:-O


Getting older...
:-)


One of my senior pics
two years ago.
And I haven't changed much since then!

Hope you enjoyed walking down
Memory Lane
with me.
Watch for another post later this week...
I'll be posting some pictures that
*barely* made it into the
slideshow and some
others that
didn't!
Hope you'll be in the mood to laugh.
;-)

God bless!

In the photo of after the one where you got your cut short and layered. You look like Mandy Moore in A Walk to Remember.
