Flashback Friday/Shoot Me 9 of 52

A long, long time ago... like the Summer of 1997, I had my senior pictures done... It was thirteen years ago this summer that they were taken.  Yet I can remember that day as if it was just yesterday.  That summer, to be more specific.
I had a long post wrote up about then and now, but decided against posting it.
While my teenage years played a part in who I am today, I'm thankful to be right where I am, even if that young girl in the pictures is just a slight resemblence of the lady woman gal I am today. 

Happily married, stay at home mom, 4 kids...

When I was growing up, I dreamed about these days... being married, having children... and now I'm living the dream.

**Thanks to Neisha for kindly reminding me about my Shoot Me! post... which I hadn't forgetton about, I, err, just didn't have a picture for.. a current pic that is. :)

dear Living the dream,

13 years???? How can that be? This dream life is being mighty kind to you! Fun to see a "back~then" photo anyway.

I am happy to hear you say you love your life and it is what you always wanted. Just the other day i was telling my husband again how much i appreciate being able to do this "stay~at~home~Mom" thing, and i even used those same words "I feel like i am living the dream!"

Love,
Feeling lucky my dream came true
