I've recently been very nostalgic and reminiscent. I'm not exactly sure what has brought this on, but I've been thoroughly enjoying looking back at old scrapbooks and journals. And now that I finally figured out the scanner we've had for over a year, I'm all set to get scanning.
Does anyone want to join me in the reminiscing rampage that's sweeping the nation? Well, maybe not the nation, but the blogosphere? Okay, well, at least my blog!
Introducing, for all to play along....
For my first flashback, I would like to share one of my favorite flashbacks. Here I am with my lifelong friend, Jamie, and our rugged snowman....
The facemask beard, the orange hunting cap, the empty fields in the background that are now jam-packed with subdivisions.... I love this precious memory!
Jamie and I grew up on the same street. We were born two months apart. Our brothers were the same age as well. We would always hang out at each other's houses. In the summers we would ride bikes and jump on Jamie's trampolene. In the winters, we would build snowmen (regardless of the many fashion faux pas's we committed in doing so), and there were occassional snowmobile/tubing rides. That was, at least, until my brother's speedy snowmobiling caused Jamie to flip off the tube and break her collar bone. Poor girl.
Jamie and I ended up being roommates for five years in our 20's. That started a whole new series of traditions and memories. But we always had this picture in a frame to remember our roots. It's a classic.
