I was going to post something thoughtful and interesting about my recent thoughts about dancing and how it makes me happy, but I got distracted with family photos. Since some of them are pretty fantastic, I’ve decided to share instead. I can post about dancing any time — but these photos are truly awesome. Also, my mom is an incredible photographer, as she’s taken four of the photos below.
My first rafting trip ever. Can you spot me? I’m the little yellow helmet you can see peeking over the bow of the boat — I was five years old. My dad is the raft guide, and my mom is the woman in the back left (as you’re looking at the photo).
You can see I developed my sense of fashion early in life. I particularly love the striped T-shirt under the patterned dress, and the knee-high socks with the patent leather shoes. Great combos there.
I just love the background and joy in this photo. Clearly, I loved what I was doing and who I was with!
All right. Cutest picture of my little brother, ever. I love his red bow tie. You can totally read his mind: “I am SOOO handsome.”

My Dad and I at my birthday party. I had it in a Library, of course. What can I say? I had good taste. Also, my mom is an amazing photographer.
This is my favorite photo of the whole bunch — my Grandma and Grandpa on my Mom’s side of the family. They are such a handsome couple — and I just love her sense of style! I love how happy they look! This photo was likely taken in the 50s, or so, around when my grandparents were getting married. It’s a gorgeous photo, and I love the character of all the creases and wrinkles.
