I have had my share of beyond awkward years. I even have my moments these days that I would rather not remember. And thankfully, I usually don’t have a photo to remind me of those moments. Although, one day I would probably look back and laugh. That’s what I really hope that we can do today: Laugh. Because I have scanned in some of my school pictures of yesteryear. Oh my, I was SO gangly and awkward and my hair went through about every phase there is. I get that there weren’t digital cameras back then, but can’t you tell when a child isn’t smiling or her hair is sticking out? Couldn’t they have taken a redo right then instead of developing the picture and then making your parents pay more for retake picture day? Which my parents never did.
What a sweetie. I love your scrunchy little Jules.
Didn’t I look like a young Gaby Hoffmann (Samantha in Now and Then)?
Heads up, your hair is sticking out and you are being really serious.
Did something happen to the original shirt I was wearing,
or did I really pick this to wear on school picture day?
Scanned in from a yearbook, so it looks like half my face is falling off.
This was before I had a straightener, when I just thought I could
straighten my hair with a curling iron. EEsh.
Also scanned in from a yearbook.
Shell necklace, those were such a fad!
My senior picture was taken on our front stairs
when we moved to Idaho…before we even got grass apparently.
