Thirty-______ Years

Today is my birthday, and I thought I would treat the rest of you to a walk down memory lane. My memory lane. Some of you will remember these photos, having been around when they were taken, or having seen them in a slide show that my dad long-windedly narrated when you visited our house. For others of you, this will be your first time seeing me in all my youthful glory.

You're welcome...

I think I was 6 or 7 here, wearing the birthstone necklace my Aunt Barb had given me for my birthday. Greg says I look like a shepherdess.

I was 11 in this picture. I do not recall having long and skinny legs. Perhaps the mountains in the background are creating an optical illusion.

Ack! This picture was taken one year later, when I was twelve. A lot can happen in one year (unfortunately). I had these glasses before being aware of the existence of Sally Jesse Rapheal. Seriously. And I recall that other girls in my class got glasses similar to these shortly after I did. That doesn't make it right. I'm just sayin' is all.

And this is me now, well, last weekend anyway, with my kids. Thank goodness for contact lenses...and hair dye...and, well, a whole lot of other things that have changed since I was twelve!

Happy Birthday to me!!

Happy Birthday! What a fun trip down memory lane. I suppose I don't remember those years shown. In my early memories you have crimpy hair and teased bangs. Awesome. Totally rad. Speaking of rad hair, is that pink I see in Sophie's hair? Cool! I want some! I love you! I hope you're birthday is great!
