back to my childhood

i just found one of the coolest downloads... this!
we used to have a polaroid when i was little and i LOVED using it! i remember going out into the yard and taking pictures of the most random things. i probably still have those polaroids somewhere in and admist all the junk i've rat packed all these years! ;) i also have some great polaroid shots of me when i was little. they are quite cute, if i do say so myself, but mostly because i look like little k in them. she found them and said, "look mommy, it's a picture of me with kitty. where is this kitty?" i should scan the pic so one can compare. i guess we have the same genes! :)
anyhow, i've already been having lots of fun with this download tonight!
check out the few i've already done:

look at my sweet family! we look like we're in the 70's, save for our fashions, i suppose.

i thought this little diddy looked kinda cute as a polaroid!

now this one totally looks ancient, doesn't it? i love it! my baby girl and i, circa 2009... although it could be a picture of my mom and me, circa 1979!
my two gals before heading to awana clubs one wednesday evening, on 'wacky hair night'.
oh sweetness... how i love this little face to bits and pieces!

there you have it... just a few shots now in polaroid form. how fun! download it and try it out for yourself. you won't be disappointed.
now, i wonder how they actually print out...

10 years

our 10 year anniversary was 5 days ago on december 11th. i can hardly believe it's been 10 years already. i'm married to the very best man, chosen for me. sometimes it's so easy to neglect our relationship. to take for granted. when i do take the time to remember our wedding day, i'm filled with emotions. so many amazing moments. i remember vividly the first time we saw one another that day. it was just after noon and i had come to the photographer's studio to take pics, alone with m. he drove himself there, i was dropped off by my dad. i took my shoes off, took my cloak off and walked with anticipation into the studio. i could hear him chatting with the photographer. i walked around the corner and our eyes met. the photographer kindly left the room for us to have a moment by ourselves. it was magical. we just stood there, so excited about the day. chatting about how surreal it was. we were so in love. we're still in love. maybe i don't always show it... maybe there isn't as much glitz and glamour (although what kind of glitz and glamour was there then? maybe just lest wrinkles and more hair -- for one of the parties involved)... maybe our life currently revolves around 3 people who are less than 4 feet tall. ;) we're now more in love today than we were then. we've endured much and fallen deeper in love with one another b/c of those hardships... and the good times also. we can only get closer as the years go by, as long as we stand by each other. i love you so much, m!! you were made for me, and i for you!
10 years... 5 houses... 4 vehicles... 3 beautiful girls... 2 platinum wedding bands... 1 amazing man... happy 10 year anniversary!!
