Once again, it never ceases to amaze me how much better I feel after writing out things that are conflicting in my mind. And I appreciate the friends I have who come here and lift me up and reassure me that I'm normal and that what I wrote isn't all that bad! So thanks to all who commented on my rather soap box in nature post yesterday. I feel a bit of a weight is lifted. And I am so happy with where I am in my life right now!

Continuing with the lighter side of things - I started a project on Facebook. As I mentioned previously, it has been ten years since I graduated from high school. Six years since I graduated college. And in the fun of looking back, I decided to start scanning pictures I have from those days before everyone had a digital camera. And it has been hilarious looking back in time!

Here is one such picture - the early days of Nate and I as a couple, the last day of our sophomore year of high school. 16 years old. Dating maybe two months at this point.

Who are these babies? Seriously! We are so young in that picture! And look at Nate's blond hair! Those were his swimming days and it would go bleach blond, lasting well into the summer. And I love my eye roll here, don't know if it was something someone said or what. And Nate's just totally zoned out like "yep, this is my woman. Yep she's yacking away as usual and I'm not paying attention." At any rate, this one made me laugh. And funny fact - I figured out, this picture was taken by the future photographer Jes Lee - yes the Jes Lee who took those nice portraits of us this winter! Like the one on the heading of this blog! Kind of ironic, no?

Lol!!! You are too funny my dear! When we took that pic over 10 years ago, I don't think there is any way we could have imagined we'd be where we are today looking back at it! I love looking at these old pictures! Here's to many more fun years and a lot more pictures! :)

Oh that is funny! I can't believe how much has changed in 10 years and how much younger you look! I wish I had some pictures from high school, but I don't. I agree with Jes and look forward to many more fun years and more pictures!

Love the pic. When I look back at pics of high school, I think "Oy! If only I knew....what I know now; nobody will remember; I'll never use algebra later; I should get the recipe from the lunch ladies 'cause I'll never make it the same way..."
