There are a few things I love about this picture of
my friend Gina and me taken when we were about 6 or 7 years old.
1. It was taken on our front porch.
We played many, many, many hundreds of hours on that porch.
So many great memories of playing pretend using pine needles,
pine cones, sawdust, and rocks as our props.
(And boy have times changed haven't they? If I sent Madison outside at that age with
nothing but pine needles, pine cones, sawdust, and rocks-
she would have thought I was CRAZY! )
2. Please note the color of the house.
It was turquoise.
That's what happens when you allow your
two very young daughters to pick what color to paint your house.
3. Our SNAZZY outfits.
Check out those shoes, handbags, and hysterical wigs!
