A Photo Challenge for YOU !!!!! (EVERYONE)


I was looking through some old scrapbooks last night.....forgot all about this photo...my sister, Tina on the left...my beautiful Mom....and Me....this was taken many years ago...around 20 I believe.....I remember the day..and how much fun we had...how much we laughed.....I can't remember the occasion..maybe there was none...maybe it was someone's birthday?????? All I know is that I am so grateful for memories. When you stop and think about it...memories are really "who we are"...just layers and layers of memories....built on top of one another...over and over....I love sitting and looking at all the really old photo albums that were once my Grandmother's...I stare at all the photos and try to imagine where they were taken????What the people were doing????? I look at the scenery, and think about how much it's all changed.....the clothes...shoes...hairstyles....SO..here is my challenge for everyone.....Go find one of your favorite photos...from lets say...at least 20 years ago....and POST IT.....tell us a story about it..and why you like it so much....leave me a comment so we can all share the photos and stories.....it can be of anything you want...a person...a place or thing....your high school picture...ANYTHING!

I got a head start on your challenge and managed to find half a drawer full of pictures with stories attached. I had to stop, I was starting to get greedy...

Here are a few I've done, and I agree with you, it is such a great way to tie your old life into what you are now...

Look at you and your mom and sister! All of you are so beautiful! You are all glowing with true happiness! The hair styles are now back in!:)

Oh My Gosh!! This is so exciting! Yes! I will take you up on your challenge! Only you Vicci would think of something so creative as this! What a wonderful Idea!

I can't wait to see everyone's blog to see what they have posted!

I do the same thing with photos. I love them. This is where that saying must come from... "a picture paints a thousand words."

"Memories are really who we are... just layers and layers of memories...built on top of one another...over and over" I love that Vicci!

Thankyou for this post!
Love you!
