In The Beginning...

Untitled-1

Spending a few days at my parent’s cabin gave me the opportunity to rummage through all of our old family photo albums. The original plan was to dig up embarrassing bad-adolescent-fashion photos but I when I came across these earlier snapshots I couldn’t resist. I guess this is hard evidence that I’ve always loved dressing up and having my picture taken. ;) I think you can see that I'm still using some of the same poses. Please try not to laugh too hard at my attempt to dress up as an Indian for Halloween. I was stricken with a terrible case of chicken pox and still have the scars to prove it. I think that grimace on my face says it all. For years after that (so many years I’m embarrassed to admit how many) I thought that chicken pox was something that happened to children only on Halloween night.

How cute! I got chicken pox after I graduated from college, but luckily, it wasn't too bad. Isn't it fun to look at old photo albums?

I love your old photos, you were an adorable child (and indian!) Happy Early New Years!!

allison said...

Yes, that indian picture is so cute, and really very fashionable! When did your hair turn so much darker??? I had very blonde hair when I was little, but it is still a dark blonde. I didn't know hair could have such a dramatic change (unless of course you dye it to stay a brunette, in which case my fascination would be completely in vain...)

Sally Jane said...

Thanks everyone! I had a good laugh looking through these old photos.

Allison: I'm actually still a natural blonde underneath all of the hair dye. I can thank Loreal for my current brunette locks. :)

brazilians would kill you, they all try so hard to be blonde, hihi.
