Over on Bluebirdbaby there's a 30 day celebration of happiness going on, and I've decided to join in on the fun. That means that I'll (hopefully) be posting at least once a day for the next 30 days, talking about the things that make me happy (with lots of pictures included, I hope).
This is particularly timely, as I find myself happier than I have ever been in my entire life. It makes great sense for me to document it so that I can look back on these posts during future trying times.
(I reserve the right to not have the time to post every day, because well, I may not have the time. But I will give it my best shot.)
Last week I discovered a bunch of old photos that my mom lent me for our wedding. I thought I had lost these pictures, but nope! I was so relieved. I finally decided to bust out the scanner I bought in January and share a few.
Me as a baby, asleep in the hospital nursery. Notice I am sleeping on my stomach. SIDS alert!
I was a big reader as a kid. Here's me at approximately six years old in my bed (with Strawberry Shortcake sheets), reading a Berenstein Bears book, hanging out with our family dog Pepper.
Me with some of my friends. I had a huge collection of stuffed animals growing up. I love this photo for many reasons, but mainly because my Barbie doll is showing off her boobs. Also, there's Messy Baby (under the frog stuffed animal and by the giraffe) - her hair was always such a clusterfuck. I'm probably about four or five in this picture.
Based on how well these pictures scanned in, I love my scanner. And I love these photos - what a great surprise it was to find them again.
PS - I am still so behind on emails (over 1000 to be sorted through in my inbox right now) and commenting on your blogs. So sorry! I'm getting there...
