I love Throw Back Thursdays... it reminds me to stop and take a look at some of our old photos and reminisce on the good ol' days or the moments that make our heart melt.
In April my husband and I will be married 12 years. It's amazing how fast time has gone by - but it's even more amazing at how wonderful these years have been. We always stop to think about the moments that matter - those important moments that make us who we are and what we are. My life has had many many memories... great memories, but the moment that took my breath away - the one that made the journey all worth while, one of the most important moments in my entire life... My Wedding Day.
It was on that day - the 6th of April, that I married my best friend, my soul mate, my true love. It was on that day that I became a wife to the most wonderful man. It was the beginning to Our Forever!
This little person in this photo (above) is my eldest son Ka'eo. He was 2 years old in this photo which was taken 6 years ago. It was so difficult to cut his hair - it was curly and very long... but we had no choice, because his eye lashes are so long (just like his daddy's) - he was mistaken for a girl on more than one occasion.
It amazes me how fast time flies. His little twin brothers are now the age that he was in this photo. Time has flown by so quickly (*tear), it seems like just yesterday I was loading him up in the back of my truck that day. Cherish those moments... because they go by so fast and in the blink of an eye - they are gone.
This weeks Throwback Thursday takes us back to 2003 - before I had children. My hair was pretty long - past my butt and I was about 100 lbs. lighter then. I was 23 years old and when I did this shoot - and I was sick like crazy. I found out a few days later that I was pregnant with my eldest son. A bunch of pounds added on later and 2 pregnancies... and I think I still look the same - I'm just a little bigger. ;)
Thanks for hanging out with me and taking it back... ;)
I can't believe how fast this past week has gone by. I'm seriously at a lost and can't believe it is Thursday already. yikes!
Well - it's Thursday... Throwback time! I decided I was going to share my High School Senior Portrait with all of you. Now - those of you that have actually graduated with me, know that this photo is not the one that represented me in our Yearbook. For some reason, the Photographer decided he wanted to choose the photo for the yearbook and chose a pretty funky one. Oh well... I digress. Those of you whose yearbooks I actually had the opportunity to grace... I pasted this photo in there to replace the funky one. lol
I was pretty much an all around girl in high school... I had friends from many different cliques and groups and sometimes I chose to just hang out by myself. If you were a friend or knew me in High School - write a comment and tell me what your impression of me was. It would be interesting to read :)
I have talked to many different people who say that if they could relive it all again - they would do high school over. Honestly, I wouldn't. It was just a funky time for me in general. I enjoyed the fact that I learned many lessons from those years - but I surely would not relive them again, even if I could make different choices. Who's to say the path chosen for me the second time - would lead me where I am today... and I am truly happy with how far I have come and where I am today. I'm proud of me! ;)
Sorry about the photo quality - I couldn't find any of these anywhere... but then realized my husband keeps all photos I have ever given him in his wallet. Seriously... what an awesome guy. I think he has like 6 of them in there from over the years and this one was still in there. ;) That's another reason I would not relive it all again - who's to say that his path would not have taken him else where and I would be without him today. Oh - hell no - it's not gonna happen. lol
When I graduated from High School - I was a size 7 and 125 lbs. Times surely have changed. lol Hope you all enjoyed my Throwback to my High School Senior Year ;)
