family photos


I was just looking through some old family pictures for a certain project and had to share a few with you. 

First of all, that second grade school picture of me...what kind of hairdo is that Mom??  I think she must have cut that one herself.  Although it is looking pretty Breck Girl shiny.  And let me just add, is that a Gunne Sax?  I was so fashion-forward.

Then there's a favorite picture of my Grandma Alice, my Mom and my sister.  Nevermind that my Mom was a single mother working nights in the ER to get through nursing school and we lived in a trailer...we knew how to DRESS.  Seriously, look at those outfits.  Way to go, Girls.

And last, I love this picture of my Grandmother.  She's in the basement turned panelled wood full bar in her house on Long Island.  Boozing it up.  When I was little my grandparents had their friends over OFTEN for 5 o'clock cocktail hour.  I would systematically go around the room and beg martini-soaked olives off all the partakers.  Ah, the early 1970s.  Those were the good ole days.

OMG, you haven't aged a bit! My parents had a bar in the basement (mid 70s too) and they loved to PAR-TY. I would play bartender at their parties. I used to collect Coors beer pins from my parent's friend who was a beer distributor. That explains a lot! Thanks for sharing those amazing photos Liane. Cheers!
