Moments and Memories

on June 5, 2016

I recently participated in a photo challenge that was circulating on Facebook. You know the one, where you had to share a photo that was over 15 years old and post a different photo each day for 5 days and tag another person to do it too.

That challenge saw me pulling out the photo albums and I went wandering down memory lane. A photo is a lot like a song – it takes you back to a moment in time, a place in your memory that all of sudden feels recent, not 15 years ago. Or longer.

I present to you some of my history, in no particular order. The change in body size, hair size (!), hair length and hair colour. It’s all part of me and it is part of what makes me who I am today.
