hello there...

just doing summer things...how about you?


little me

i'm ok with knowing that these photos prove my vintage status:) love old photos soooo much! my husband has been kind enough to spend some of his winter evenings scanning old family slides and i am so appreciative.
to you, this is just a photo of a little girl and that's how it should be. but to me? here's what i see: my ever so slightly pigeon-toed feet - which remind me of my youngest son. a face that shows traces of one of my precious nieces - and i've never seen that similarity in real life. baggy tights - so me! i see a slightly shy appearing but determined little face. i see a cute little coat and darling glasses and scuffed red shoes. and a child who was loved and well cared for despite the fact that my parents did not have much financially in those days. 

oh yes. to you this is just another photo of a little girl in the 70s. but to me? it is part of a great big story that means the world to me. this is why i take countless photos. this is why i record {our} everyday moments and memories. this is my one wild and precious life - and i love it!!!!


happy 2013...

our holiday card this year...sharing it late is better than never, right?!

working on my opening pages of Project Life for 2013, continuing to work on PL 2012, and still plugging away at my December Daily. and doing laundry, making school runs, and the usual stuff of day to day life. so thankful for 'normal' days, good health, and family and friends! happy 2013 to you:)
