Since my laptop is off in Best Buy land, I'm scanning some photos from a vintage suitcase that was from my grandparents' house. The one that fascinates me the most is the sepia photo of my Nana. She was born in 1912 so I'm guessing this photo is from the early '30's. It's really fun to see her at such a young age and such a pretty photo of her. Can't wait to scrap it!
Nana is the shorty in the front-center. This one absolutely kills me because the Nana I know would be having a fit about being in the pool and getting her hair wet, let alone smushing it with a bathing cap. She liked to look just so and the definitely involved dipping body only in the Club pool. I bet these ladies have had a great time (and a few cocktails).
My last photo for tonight was taken in the summer of 1951. Nana is the lady in the middle with my mom. I'm not sure who the guy is. It's got to be Pop-pop, but it sure doesn't look like him in this photo! My mother was 11 in this pic, and they are off on a family vacation somewhere. It's a shame it doesn't say where, and sadly, everyone is dead that I can ask! More importantly, I have the photo and can get it scrapped so my family will know who these people are!
Ali Edwards has a challenge on her blog to select a word for the year. I have chosen the word ME. This year is going to be about me. Me at the gym, me eating healthy, me doing a job I like because I want the discounts, me enjoying the beauty parlor when I get my hair colored and cut, me getting a pedicure. I don't mean selfish. I mean taking care of me. Preserving me. Sometimes ME can get lost in the shuffle and with the kiddos leaving the nest in the next few years, I want to make sure there is a ME here when they are gone off to their first of life's challenges and triumphs - college!
