Special Edition- Pictures From Before the Days of Blogging

So i was thinking the other day that i likely start my sentences with 'so' too often..., that it would be fun to show you some pictures from pre-blog.  Life in my 20's was certainly a fun time, and upon review of some of those pictures, i got REALLY excited!   The pictures i usually show you are small glimpses into our life now.  Some are of the kiddos, some of my plants, some of food and sometimes of things i do with friends.  But i take a lot of pictures generally and yes, those do end up on my Facebook (which not all of you are privy to);  however, the time has come and i'd like to share some of them with you.

These pictures i will post as 'small' in view, but please, simply click on them if you'd like to see them in a larger view.  I won't offer up too much story on each.  Hopefully, they'll tell a tale all on their own.  A few pictures are from present day (read: life with kids), and do include newer friends.  These 'newer' friends in my life, are helping to make Alberta feel like home.  And a few faces in these pictures, have been around forever.  These peeps are still around because they rock!   (There are many pictures i would love to include, but they are not scanned and are from the days of 'film')

These are the pictures that make me truly happy!

Feel free to ask me anything, about any of them.

Hanging around the 'Frat' house-- yes, that is what i said.

I hope you found this amusing.
And perhaps, you've gleaned just a bit more about me?
My head is swirling with emotions of days gone by....
if ONLY i'd been blogging back then.

If only I blogged in my 20's. Wow. Some crazy times. I'm sure I would have been offered a book deal because my 20's? Crazy. Can't remember much right now.

You guys look so cool and fun. Then and now.
