An Anniversary

16th wedding anniversary.

At this time
younger then
any of your daughters

Can hardly remember
this lifestyle

Going through old pictures
the thought came to mind

After children and involvement
in the world

What do you want to do
when you grow up

Or rather
grow old

Always a dream to
be surrounded
by nature

One Woman lives
at the edge of the woods

Oh Ernestine!

I think we could have been sisters in another life time!
Your picture reminded me of me many years ago!
Only, I was i Las Vegas with my husband, my hair was just like yours, long and dark, now it is short and white:) Such a contrast!
Nice pretty thin arms,nice cleavage, oh the things we notice:)
Thank you for the stroll down memory lane:)
Hope the sun is shining on you today:)

Wow, isn't it funny what we think of our old pictures. I remember not thinking that I looked very pretty, and now I think, my i was not bad!!!!
You were and are still very pretty...

It's good to look back and remember young hopes and dreams. It makes me wonder what would happen if we made this a practice. Rather than a state of the union it would be examining the state of something else -- our deepest desires, maybe? Perhaps we would discover our lives richer than we realize.

Thanks, Ernestine, for sharing this treasure from your life.

so glad you are back in the woods you loved so much. is the old home you once lived in visible from your current home or close by?

old pics are fun to see - we enjoy our old family pics, too, especially seeing how much fashion and hair styles have changed over time. looks like you had been busy tanning.

Sky, thank you for visiting. I was always tan when the children were growing up. We had a pool and traveled to the ocean a lot.
Have a great day.
