30 Years Ago.....

I graduated from high school. I really can't remember the exact date. I just know it was 30 years ago this week. In 1979, to be exact. As I ponder this I realize that many of the authors on my blog read list weren't even born yet. Yeesh!!!
Anyways, you won't be seeing any cute graduation photos from 1979. I really don't think my mother thought to take pictures. And kudos to her for that!!!!! Seriously.....Photos of myself from yesteryear are not among my favorites. I was a homely little chub. If there had been an award for "Most Likely to be sitting at home eating bon-bons", I would have won it hands down!! It was so bad that a couple of years after graduating from high school I cut my photos out of all four of my yearbooks. I thought there is no way anyone is seeing those babies....especially my husband!!
And my husband never saw them.....well, not until my 20 year reunion. I seriously should have thought longer about attending. Because if I had then I would have foresaw the moment that a former classmate whipped out the yearbook. NO SHE DIDN'T!!! Yes, she did. And the reason was specifically to show my husband that yes....at one time in my life I did wear tents. His response?? Oooo....I would have never dated you. Awesome dear!!!
Well, thirty years have passed very quickly and I am not the girl I once was. I'm pretty sure I shed a portion of that girl somewhere along the way :)
