70's Flashback

30 years today. Ugh. I have been dreading this day for almost the last 364 days. It is marked on my calendar as, "A dark, dark day." However, in honor of this momentous occasion I present to you a photo of myself age 3. I would have done an infant picture of me but they all have that crazy pink tone that all pictures from ye olde days have. You know like even the cameras were seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses. Ahh... the 70's.

Oh, screw it. Here ya go. The day I came home from the hospital because really it's more embarrassing for them then for me.


Geez, look how skinny my mom was after giving birth. I know I didn't come home after giving birth to Linus looking all svelte. Guess I didn't get that gene.

And since I'm feeling generous, here's that pic of me at age 3. Cute, huh?

Thank you everyone. You are all too sweet. I'm coming to terms with it slowly. My Death By Chocolate cake is helping.

We were gone on the day of your birthday, but I wanted to share a perspective that I came to have--If I began to think negatively about birthdays and what was past, I remembered that my mother died at the age of 40 and missed out on the growing up of her daughters and getting to know her wonderful grandchildren. I have so much to be thankful for! A belated happy birthday to you--and I know that you have much to look forward to!
