flashback friday

We were looking through old photo albums and videos with the kids last weekend and they love seeing themselves when they were "little."  I love how there are so many memories in one little picture.  When I look at photographs, I'm transported back to that time the picture was taken and I become emerged in whatever the event, people, or feelings that are associated with the photograph.
So today I'm taking a break from diys, home décor, food, and fashion to share some old personal pictures.  Shall we reminisce...

5.  And last is this video of Lyla saying her bedtime prayers at age 2yrs, which I cherish so much.{Summer 2010}

p.s. Ruby was our basset hound, who is no longer with us :(  They used to like to pray for her too :)


I just randomly went through and picked a few pictures.  None of these are professional quality and I actually had to scan a few, but each has a special memory for our little family.  And clearly they were before I knew anything about taking pictures and editing, but I still love them!

You can also view this post to see more family pictures.  And now that I'm full swing on instagram, I usually tend to share our daily photos there.  So come follow along here if you like seeing the more personal day to day moments.  Have a great weekend!
