30 Days of Happiness, Day 1: Found Photos

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...

The picture of you on your bed could have so been me. I had that same bed spread and always had my nose buried in a book, Berenstein Bears being one of my favorites.

I had the same Strawberry Shortcake bed sheets! Still have them, actually. My mom uses them, and my Pound Puppy and my Shera sheets in the spare bedroom. I also loved the berenstein bears. Yay for happy posts!
