Childhood Photos

over the thanksgiving holiday, my brother gave me a small photo album that gives me just what i need to prove (to scott) that i was a domestic diva and quite stylish as a kid. he was also quite stylish with his pinky ring and our mom in her confirmation dress - beautiful.

i genuinely loved that pretend vacuum cleaner, which made the hum sound, and also enjoyed wearing pretty dresses with hats and gloves. nowadays, i'll pass on the vacuuming, but a pretty dress every now and then might be nice.

xo, cindy

ps today i have such a bad cold and really miss my mom's tlc. things i didn't care for at all as a kid like soft-boiled eggs with toast and vicks vapor rub would be so welcome right about now.

oh i hope you feel better soon. my mom always makes chicken soup to heal all when i'm down with a cold. i'm still trying to kick my sinus infection, and we've been rubbing isaiah down with vicks every night.

i love the pics!! you look adorable....
thinking of you and prayed for you, with your cold...missing your mom.
it's funny, as a kid i ate everything...now i'm picky about eggs and meat....but whenever i think of soft boiled eggs on toast..it makes me nostalgic and takes me right back to childhood...sitting in the kitchen with my mom... and i'm sure i would love them again, but can't make myself try them.
feel better soon...let scott take care of you
love m

Time travel! What a delight! Aw, those are fantastic pictures. A box full of great memories. Love it.

Hope you are feeling better, Cindy. Nothing beats Mom's tlc, but maybe Scott can make a mean toast with a heart-shaped egg in the middle? :) Take care.

A perfect gift! Yes, my friend you were (are) a styling gal and so was your mom. I almost thought that was you in the confirmation dress. We are never too old for a bit of TLC. Feel better Cindy!! xo

There really is nothing like old pictures. This reminds me I should bug my mom when I see her at Christmas for her stash of photos of me & my sis.

Special childhood memories! I love looking through old family photos and learning the stories that each one holds. Such a treasure trove of family history.

Happy Christmas-time to you!
