Friday Photo Flashback...


Since I showed you a picture of my brother as he looks these days (in my Skype post earlier today), I was inspired to find a picture of us from days past for Alicia's Friday Photo Flashback.

This is a picture of my brother and me at my mom's condo. I think it was around Christmas time and I was visiting before the holiday. I was roughly 23, so my brother was 17 or so. I love this picture because we both look so happy. It was not a particularly happy time in either of our lives, so this picture is especially poignant.



P.S. Notice that I never went anywhere without a)shoulder pads and b) using the hot rollers...those curls were the best I could do!

Head on over to Alicia's to see what everyone else pulled out from their photo albums.

Shoulder pads, had to love 'em! Amazing how a picture can bring all your memories and emotions flooding back as if it were happening today. :-)

You do both look very happy! The first thing I noticed was your hair...it looked so pretty..great curls.

Please tell me that shoulder pads will never come back...they never stayed on my shoulders like they were suppose to. Ugh.

That is a great picture. I'm with Darcie -- I hope shoulder pads never come back. I wore enough in the 80's to last a lifetime.

Love the curls and the hair. You look so pretty!

So when I met Adam many moons ago, we had a conversation about our relationship to each other. We were like Erin is your sister, and Erin is my Sister so what does that make us? Absolutely nothing. We thought that was funny. Not sure why. That is my only memory of Adam. It is nice to see the two of you so happy and smiley.

Erin,
I used hot rollers every single day when I was in high school and until I was in my mid-20's. Your hair is absolutely stunning-really beautiful. And you two really do look happy.
