I've been sorting and packing boxes for my move and have come across some pictures I want to share now that I'm blogging.
This is a picture taken about 1958/1959 of me in my papa's arms in Endicott, New York, which is where I was born. The color of the leaves are so beautiful and with my dad smiling it's a great picture. In August 2005 I took a trip with my parents to visit the home we lived in when I was born, which is where this picture was taken. We visited alot of other places relevant to my mom and dads upbringing but I'll share those pictures at a later date.
The picture below is dated July 1961 and I'm 2 1/2 years old. I thought we lived in Los Angeles 1960 - 1969 but I don't remember living in any brick houses in LA. It could be in Alabama when my dad was still in the military, it's where Scott, my younger brother was born. In any event I really like the picture, aren't I cute and so innocent looking?!!

This picture is of my mom holding three chickens. It doesn't have a date though I think it was taken on the farm in New Bremen, Ohio, maybe on a trip home from when she was attending Ohio State University. My mom has many stories about living on the farm though she doesn't like to talk about most of them.
That's all I have to share for now, more to come later.


  1. Wow what great pictures, Kristen. You are just the cutest! Thanks for sharing those. I love seeing old pictures.

  2. Kay - I love seeing old pictures too. That's actually how I found out about Tim Holtz, I love his products, especially his vintage paper :o)
