Suzie, Meet My Family

Suzie81 Speaks Weekly Word Challenge: Family

A Love StoryPull up a chair let me walk you through my family photo album. Small family so it will be brief, promise. Here’s my mom and dad. They haven’t changed much since this pic:

A Love Story

I love this picture of the two of them at their wedding reception.


This is my brother. He hasn’t changed much since these days either:


In looking at this picture I can smell the honey suckle climbing up the post behind us and taste the strawberries growing next to me. I wish my parents had never moved from that house we grew up in.


 My little family has changed a bit from this:


Oliva was 4 months old in this one. About 5 months before she looked like so:


I look grouchy here. Probably because I’m huge and had to pee. I could never venture too far from the loo at this stage. More recently:


I’m happier and hubby is too:

O and E restarauntThanks for the inspiration and the opportunity to share a little bit about my loves.

    Beautiful pictures! You look like your mom, too! 😀

      Thanks Sheena! My brother says I look like “70’s mom.” I’ll have to find a picture of her in the 70s to see for myself. I hope you’re doing well friend.

    Love lives through your generations, Sandra. I think you are a great combo of both your parents, and Oliva is a wonderful mix of you and Erik. And I must talk woman’s hair here the way your mom went from beehive to lone-bang-curl and you evolved from a little bit pop to a little bit punk. Thanks for sharing for Suzie’s challenge!

      Thanks Mark! I think my brother and I both resemble Frank and Dolores, west coast. Not to be confused with Frank and Dolores, east coast. And I also think that “a little bit punk” would make a great descriptor in my About section. 😉

        I would go with for you: “A little bit punk with a heart of gold.”

        Awww…thanks pal! 🙂

    What a great looking mom and dad you have. I used to wear my hair like that ( pic# 2). Love this, thanks for sharing.

    Really wonderful pictures!

      Thank you Ninna, I especially treasure the rare old family photos. Do you like old photos too or do you prefer new pics?


      • April 29, 2014 at 9:59 pm

        I don’t have any old pictures. Not that old. But I don’t prefer any of them before the other. They are just different!

    Well,you know I love pictures, and I love you, so you combined them wonderfully!

      Thank you Abbi! I love the vibe of that whole era too. Very Mad Men, isn’t it?

    What an amazing family. Pictures really do have a lot to say. You seem to have a very loving, fun family.


    • May 1, 2014 at 3:48 pm

      I agree, pictures do say so much. Do you collect family pics too? I love old shots especially.


      • May 1, 2014 at 4:15 pm

        We have so many old pictures. I’ve put my growing up pics in posts, but my mother has a heck of a lot of family pictures
