smile

My big sister sent this photo to me. Can you find me?  I love perusing old photos.  In many ways, I connect to my younger self.  I always want to know more about myself as the childhood years truly are the formative ones.  True to myself, I still possess a passion for white shirts and the middle part and a wide smile.  Bangs just never were my thing.  Now, do you spot me?

Wow - we all looked alike in those years! That's how we wore our hair and white shirts were part of the school uniform. A fun blast from the past!

This is so timely. We are cleaning out the attic and I came across boxes of old photos I hadn't seen since we moved from Charlotte. What memories!!!

Gorgeous at every age! Can't beat a great white shirt. I love love old photos too; I don't have children yet but I worry that by then, printed photos will be even less common than today, it' such a shame! xx

Well my eye immediately went to the slender girl on the left and that's before I read your post. That has to be you, right? Gorgeous then as now!

How much fun to be from a big family! I love to look at old photos...the little smiles on the faces of children really tell a lot about the person as an adult.

We had friends in CT with 5 little girls and my kids used to always ask if we could have them over for dinner...and they would ask this at about 5 o'clock in the afternoon...I used to try to explain that one must have a plan when inviting a family of seven over for dinner....they just loved that every time they did come over it felt like a party, just our little family of four and theirs of seven. I'm sure you have many happy childhood memories of dinners and birthdays with a brood that large!

Love looking at childhood photos, my mom has them all though so I only get to see them when I visit her.
I spotted you before the clues...very sweet picture!
