FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Just sign in to Mr. Linky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

This is me & my hubby on our wedding day, July 6, 1996! Nothing about it was "traditional." I didn't wear a white dress, and I was already in my last trimester of my pregnancy! FYI, this was our "BC" (before Christ) days. We both gave our lives to the Lord in 2000. Anyway, while on our "honeymoon" in Monterey, my water broke and I gave birth to Isaiah five days later (4 weeks prior to my due date). My friend had this dress made for me, and it was a pretty light peach color. After the wedding, we had a reception at a local restaurant called Tarpy's, and we had a private banquet room that held 40 of our family and closest friends! Very small, yet very intimate!

And in case you're wondering, that is my husbands NATURAL curly hair!

Wonder how else we are alike

The earlier version of ourselves is really something, isn't it? When I look back on pictures of my husband and I from when we were teenagers, I still smile.

I had to come by today after seeing that our artist-friend Wendy highlighted your We Heart Art post on Helene's site today. Such fun.

You really do have a Picasso in your midst. Thanks again for playing along!

It's a great picture and who cares if it was traditional or not...you started your family that day.

Hi, Alicia! Nice to "meet" you. You look beautiful in your flashback picture. How is it that you and your husband look younger in your sidebar pictures on your blog?! You are a homeschooling mom of five kids! Why don't you look tired?

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Re: the Asian eyes. Have you ever done the computer thing that tells you what celebrities you look the most like. No matter what picture I use, the two celebrities the computer always says I look like the most are Jet Li and Lucy Liu. They're both amazingly beautiful so, yeah, I wish....but I'm not Asian. It's crazy.

Thanks for hosting the Flashback party. This was fun! I'll have to do this again!

momstheword said...

Um, I'm not sure but I think it may have been around 2000, but I'm not really sure. We went that year so it's possible!
