On this Easter Sunday, I planned to dig into my archives and share a few vintage images of my sisters and I posing with the spoils of our morning Easter Egg hunt — like this one: But of course, I waited until the last minute to start looking for the photo files.

Memory Monday, Week 157

Two weeks ago for Memory Monday I shared photos of the kids tearing into their presents during Christmas 1983, and this week you can see them after the toys were all assembled and ready for action.

Mexico Monday redux, Week 28

Welcome back to Mexico Monday redux! I can’t remember if I’ve shared the corrected versions of my slides this week, but they include some of my favorite memories. One or two of the images seem to relate to ones I’ve previously shared — like the one below, showing our VW camper parked outside an open-air restaurant along the highway, shot […]
