One year older and wiser too + awkward childhood photos

Yesterday was my sister's birthday! I am so lucky and happy to have her in my life. We are best friends and so close. I'm glad we were able to share a room together for 17 years. And that we have grown up enjoying a lot of the same hobbies. We spent our childhood running around the farm barefoot, climbing haystacks, riding in the tractor barrel, and playing with ponies and a lot of other animals all day long. I was looking through some of our old scrapbooks and found all of these photos of us when we were younger. I snapped a few with my phone (hence the not so awesome second generation quality) and knew I had to post a few! Some are clearly not so flattering. Oh, to be so awkward on a daily basis again.... 
We know nothing of golf really.

Danced together since we were tiny.

Always playing dress up at Grandma's

Yes, that is a baby goat on our couch, nothing out of the ordinary :)

My sad attempt at bangs and fashion. But hey! Look at those houses!

And our piano recitals. Which I don't remember a thing I ever learned.


My new phone background. Check out that style.
Love you, Jo!


  1. hahaha old photos are the best! Although my hubby makes fun of mine every time he see's them...

  2. Awwww! You two are just too cute! I haven't ever seen pictures of you guys when you were little so it's fun to see them! Thanks for posting them! I also love your comments to go along with them...they make me laugh!


Thank you for your kind words!
