Friday Photo Flashback

It is Friday Photo Flashback again...it is time to show your treasures from the pre-digital era. Head over to Alicia's at More Than Words to see what everyone else dug out this week.

As for me, this is what I dug out of the archives. This is a picture of me with Charming taken Christmas morning 1994. He was almost 4 years old and was still an only child. We still lived in our beloved apartment (we loved it so much, we lived there for a total of 8 years). It is so funny to look back at that little boy and realize he's my 6'5" Charming.

The other thing I notice is that I had red hair back then. I loved my red hair but it was so difficult to maintain. (I like that haircut, too...hmmmm...)

Finally, see the red ceramic angel in the back of room? Those were left all around Los Angeles as gestures of goodwill and I was lucky enough to find one. I had that angel for years and year (until a child broke it, I think).

I can't even imagine my little charmings becoming bigger than myself!!! Time flies hey? To answer your question from yesterday... I have a throw rug that I'd like to put down in that room, but I'm not sure if I'd like a smaller, maybe oval rug for just in front of the fireplace area....? Haven't decided yet:0)! Thank you for your visits..I look forward to reading your thoughts on my funny little projects! Have a great day! Smiles:0)!

aaww, what a sweet photo. I can´t imagine looking back at my girls baby photos knowing that they are teens now. It is hard enough now that they are 3,5 and 7 :)

I loved reading all your details about your picture!!

Alicia said...

Oh my gosh..6'5??? Wow!!

And I do like the red on you!! I do that too. I'll look at an old picture and wonder why I can't get my hair to do that anymore! LOL!

Dani Joy said...

oooo Erin, you need to do a before and after picture of your Charming if he would let you. And of you and your hair colors. ;) I love your red!! It´s very becoming!

I love that pic and I love the memories you shared. My boys are close to that age(7). It's funny to think of them being 6'5" some day. It reminds me that things do change!
