a look back …

My son just turned 18 . . .

I spent most of his birthday looking through old photographs

wondering where all the time went!

Komedal Road - Portugal 7

All I know is that it all passed by much too quickly!!

I spent some time looking at baby pictures . . . family pictures . . . sports pictures . . .

vacation pictures . . . and on and on it went!!

I found myself laughing, smiling and crying as the day went on . . .

and then I had what I thought to be a brilliant idea . . .

to start a little photo album on Facebook . . .

but – I quickly realized that you can’t put 18 years of memories

into an album on Facebook!!

Seriously – what was I thinking?!?!?

Well . . .

one set of photos was from our Portugal trip that we took in 2006 . . .

I believe it was one of the highlights of Pierre’s youth . . .

as well as a highlight for our whole family!!

Here are a few of those memories . . .

I am quite sure that someday he will be back!!

. . . . . . .

Peace and Love to all of you today!!!

  1. Liz, love, love, love all the photo’s of what must have been a fantastic trip with tons of memories to savor. I loved seeing the kids at that age, their sweetness, fun and love comes through the photographs. It may be hard to think 18 years has gone by, and they do slip by quickly, but you just have to look and talk to Pierre to know you’ve raised a great kid who is ready to face the world. Thanks for sharing the lovely photo’s. I’ll put Portugal on my Bucket list.
    Love you
    Katie and Tom
