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! Don't forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

This picture brings back a wonderful memory for me! This is my husband and I (then boyfriend) at his brothers house back in 1995! Not too long after this, I got pregnant with our eldest, Isaiah!! If I put myself back during that time, I would never have imagined us having five kids! I love reflecting on our older photos because I can still remember all what was going on during those times!!

It's amazing to me to think that we first met 21 years ago!

You two look gorgeous. Congratulations on 21 years. That's quite an achievement.

21 years ago is a long time with a lot of memories. I think that's awesome. And look at you, you haven't aged a bit!

Darcie said...

Bad me! When I saw your comment on my blog, I started trying to remember if I had left you a comment...sure enough...I didn't. My mind is leaving me!!

What a sweet picture of your then boyfriend and your now husband. I think this is what I like best about the meme...the memories that come back with the old pictures.

Have a great weekend!

Pam said...

Me again. Thanks for stopping by the 5 Moms blog today. You so need to watch the rest of the seasons of 24. Awesome! I will for sure miss it when it finally comes to an end. Which is not far off. Then it will be a total TV fast.

I am late coming over today and getting my post up, but I think I have a couple of hours left. ;)

Great picture! Memories for a lifetime. It´s so wonderful how God has transformed your lives! He is the reason we can have families. If it weren´t for Him we would be stark mad!
