Take Me Back Tuesday - 70's and 80s

Another week has passed so it's time for Take Me Back Tuesday once again. Click the link or badge below to see how you can participate and share your own walk down memory lane.


Goodness, I didn't even know these photos existed until my siblings and I went through some of Mom's photos after she passed in June.

This photo of Mom and I in the backyard would have been taken in the early 70s, probably 1973-1974. Don't you love the hiphugger bell-bottoms? And Mom, stylish as always with her curlers and cigarette.



This photo was taken on a very happy day in early 1984. I was pregnant with #2 son while stationed at South Weymouth, Massachusetts and my family had thrown a surprise baby shower for me back home in Manchester, NH. That's Mom to the right of me, and baby Paul in my belly.


More memory-stirring photos next week!

I had a hard time, #1 figuring out who was your mom and who you were in the first picture - You both look so young. #2 Seeing where you were carrying your baby in the second picture - I looked like a beached whale and you look thinner than I normally look on a good day!

Looking forward to next week!

I am so jealous of the bell bottoms! My mom said hers were so long, she didn't have to wear shoes!
