Day 10: Childhood Memory

This may be my least creative picture yet, but as my birthday is tomorrow, I found myself looking over old photographs...
Looking over these pictures...like the 1st picture of me (top L) where I resemble a sumo wrestler, eating my first birthday cake (bottom L), first family photo (right page), or my sisters and I singing (top R)...I feel extremely splessed for the incredible heritage I've been given.
I've gotten to live an incredible life these past 30 years...wow, 30.  Weird. It's been anything but ordinary and I have God to thank for all of it.
My childhood is filled with wonderful memories....and although I'd stay in my 20's for another 10 years if I had a choice, as I take this step into the next decade of life, I turn around and look back with so much thanks and love.
So goodbye 20's! Helllooooooo 30's!!!!!


Happy Friday!!! See ya next week!

OH my goodness that is the cutest and funniest baby picture i've ever seen!!! haha I love it!! And it's weird how your mom's handwriting looks so much like Rebekah's. This is so sweet that she made this too. Something you can hold onto forever.

I can't believe you're turning 30. You're my little cousin! How can it be?!!! Uh-oh. I'm getting old!

love you and hope you have a wonderful birthday, Tam. You're such a special person in my life.

Rebekah said...

This was great Tam!! I just love our old photos...you were such an adorable baby!! I'm so happy and thankful that I have gotten to spend the last 30 with you...one of life's greatest gifts! I love you!!!

And Whit...you are amazing at recognizing my handwriting! We made this scrap book for Tami's highschool graduation and she had me do all the handwriting in it. She wrote out what I was supposed to write in the book. So, those are my Mom's words and my writing! ;)

aww, tam, happy birthday to you. (i'm still trying to mentally be ok with my 30's.) I know, I'm a bad example.

I guess I'm feeling the "day after the wedding" emotions, but this brought tears. I miss your parents. Thanks for being a very important part of our special day yesterday. I love you and pray that your 30's are as richly blessed as the past years!!!
