Dear Crissy

Wordless Wednesday: My former self

I believe I took this photo in 2002, though, it really seems like it’s been an eternity. I recognize parts of that person, but also see a child in many ways. I’m not sure what inspired me to post one of my old self-portraits, but, here you go. I was really into conceptual photography during this time period.

    That’s beautiful, yet I can totally relate to not recognizing yourself.

    9 years ago….I was 16.

    Nine years ago I was in the middle of the baby years. In fact, I was in the middle of postpartum depression after having baby #3. Hard times, but happy ones, too.

      Definitely sounds like a bittersweet time. Isn’t amazing how fast things can change?

    9 yrs ago I was a stay at home mom volunteering at my daughters’ elementary school. I had 2 yr old little boy and was hoping for a 4th child, but he didn’t come for another 2 yrs. Definitely a lifetime ago.

    That photo is amazing. I can really see the young girl in her face.

      Thanks Mimi.

      A long time ago for sure, but it’s crazy how the time goes faster the older we get.

    9yrs ago I was in my senior year at highschool. It seems like an eternity ago and I don’t even know that person anymore.

    Nine years ago I was at that stage in-between just graduating college and trying to decide what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.

    9 years ago? Hmm… I was diving into a relationship headfirst. Complete and unbridled smit. It was overwhelmingly fun and frightening. He’s now my husband ;)
