My blessing day (check out my mom's awesome fake hairpiece)
With my lovely, adoring mom
At our house in Virginia - I loved this green cordouroy pantsuit my mom made for me, that collage in the background is lots of views/renditions of the tower at Utah State University where my parents got engaged, and you've got to love how my parents had a round waterbed with the water sack enclosure covered in blue shag carpet to match the carpet on the floor. Big time stylish.
Me with baby Josh - loved that tree wall paper we had in our living room and the black pleather couch we had for ages
in Jackson Hole - dress styles sure were short!
I remember wearing this outfit pretty much every day for ages. The purple unitard was for dance and once I coupled that with a green wrap-around cheerleading skirt a teenage neighbor gave me (it went around me twice and then safety-pinned) and a super-crop top, I had a truly great outfit.
I was SO excited when my hair got long enough for pigtails! Just like my daughter Eliza, my hair took FOREVER to grow. I yearned for the braids and ponytails my friends had. By age 5, this was all the length I had even though I'd never had my hair (other than my bangs) cut. Oh, and I LOVED that coat - wore it for years.
Jumping in the leaves for Dad's birthday (with the hammock we played on all the time in the background - we'd weave our arms and legs through its ropes, then have someone flip the hammock over to see if we could stay on...)
Outtake from a family photo my senior year of high school. What awesome 80's hair I had!
