Memory sticks for my cameras are so full of memories! Yesterday I was looking for something and pulled out several SD cards and I guess it’s the modern day way of sitting down with a box of family photos!
Some of the photos brought back good memories and some . . just the look on Chad’s face, remind me of some of the years when I thought I wouldn’t make it! He was probably 18 or 19 when this picture was taken and those were a couple of years that life wasn’t easy for either of us.
See that look? He wanted to say something he wasn’t quite brave enough to say . . I know it! 🙂 He hated my camera!
The facial hair! It’s been an issue since he grew the first one but I think at this point, I was tempted to shave him while he slept!
Nicole looking at our chocolate wine and eating something! I miss her so much! She’s such a funny girl. I think I’ve said it before but before I met her and Chad was describing her to me, he said “You can’t help but be happy around her.” It’s so true. Even reading her texts, when she isn’t saying something funny, I smile because I can just imagine her facial expressions if she were telling the story in real life. I like her so much!
I don’t remember what Chad was so happy about but he was smiling about something. This picture was fairly recent and this one makes me miss him a lot. Everyone always told me during the worst of the teen years that by the time he got about 22, life would change and we would be good friends again. It happened . . and now I don’t get to see him every day! That’s life, huh?
The scariest picture of all — the hair! I must have taken a picture of an old picture from probably 20 years ago. I think I was working with the kids at church one night. It was late and I was ready to go home. I think I was a grump that night!
That was a long, long time ago . . a different life completely. I like the current “me” better!
