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.
