today because Denise started posting really cute pictures of herself when she was younger. I got to feeling nostalgic and I have been remembering all kinds of things from my youth. Here I am before I was even a year old in 1959. I know I look serious. That's because already I was displaying a tendency to be unsatisfied with surface appearances and wanted to know the real truth.
This is one of my favorite pictures of all time. In 1974, I am 16 and sitting with my best friend Julie Steinberg at the San Jose Flea Market. I was into sewing and I made the halter top I am wearing. It fit perfectly!
Here is one of my high school graduation proofs from 1976. Doh! Now you know how old I am.
Here is the one with the big permed hair, and the curling iron tamed bangs. Look! My bangs are so big they cast a shadow. I am 20 in 1978.
My sister and I posed for a gift for my mother. It was 1982 and I was 24. What a great hair day that was!
Sorry this picture isn't so good. I have super short hair and my bangs are 3 shades of red. My punk days when I was 25 in 1983 after I got back from Europe! I felt worldly. Sheesh.
O.K. I know everyone has some picture of themselves like this. I'd been married a year and dressed us for halloween. Guess who we are. We are both 29 in 1987.
I do love this picture. We're on the beach in Mexico happy, relaxed and tanned. 32 years old in 1990.
and the last one...
me and my kids when I turned 40 in 1998. I call those the "tub" years and I don't have a lot of pictures of myself during that time because everything I wore was stretchy and had some kind of food or dirt stain on it. But we were really happy and loved each other to bits.
Hey Denise, sorry I posted so many, but I got carried away.
What should we post about next?
