how is it that i am 30 years older and yet this picture could be from yesterday? disheveled hair? check. squinting at the camera? always. sugar in hand? tic tacs, yep. ridiculous shoes? natch. (those are wonder woman slippers and i wore them all. the. time.) and gee, what's that i'm doing? making a break for it? indeed. the wanderlust started early.
my mom also gave me this picture today of my grandpa and i engaged in our usual friday night activity. what on earth was that activity you ask? well, i put rollers in my grandpa's hair while he watched dallas. every. friday. night. for years. anyway, mom and i both got a little weepy. its been 5 years since he's been gone. we miss him. bunches.
