Flashback Friday - a day late




I'm (finally) playing along with Martha over at Seaside Simplicity for Flashback Friday. Every Friday she hosts a delightful meme where you can post a picture from the past and write about it, if you choose to.  I've been meaning to play this for a bit but couldn't remember how to scan pictures (LOL); thankfully hubby remembered so I scanned a whole bunch so I'm prepared for several more weeks of participating :)

I know I'm a day late, but Martha keeps the link open through Sunday (thanks Martha).

This picture is of me and my mom; taken about 1982 (ish). I know we were at a friend's of the family's wedding and they got married early 1980s.  That would have made my mom about 61 (ish) and me about 25 (ish).

You guys were adorable. What a great idea for a meme. I'm going over there to check things out.

GOD BLESS!

(p.s. I still think you're adorable...)

Sometimes I think glasses are better indicators of time period than clothes. Fun to see a photo of you and your mom!

Martha said...

Love the photo Betty! You look so pretty and mom is adorable. So glad you decided to play along :)

Dana said...

What a sweet picture!

Shelly said...

What a precious picture- the joy and love in both your faces in contagious. The early 80's doesn't seem like that long ago, though...

Secret Agent Woman said...

That's a great picture - you both look so happy.

Glasses from that time always make me laugh.

Melanie said...

Great picture, Betty...you both look very happy. I had glasses very similar to yours back then. :-)
That's a neat idea for a meme.
Have a wonderful Sunday.

Her flashback days are fun, and great pic too, all happy and not the least bit sappy.

Joanne Noragon said...

Such a happy picture. My mom had blue metal rimmed glasses like that. And, of course, I had yours.

Jeanie said...

What fun to look back at old pictures. This is a great one of you and your mom.

Amazing..! It is cool to see pictures of people with their parents... you get to see the resemblance and everything..! You really look like your Mom and your Mom is beautiful..!

Mevely317 said...

Aw, you two look so, so happy here! Doesn't that image make you smile all over again every time you see it?
(I'm so envious of the beautiful complexion!)

PS ..I'd never heard of this meme, but want to give it a try next week!

Talk about a copy, if you dyed her hair your color you would be twins. It is so good to see the mom you have spoken of. I know she was one tough lady, not I know she was one beautiful tough lady. Glad you osted that.
SWEET

Marianne said...

What a fun idea! And you and your mom have EXACTLY the same eyes! Love it.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Gorgeous picture of you and your mom. Of course, if you couldn't figure out when it was taken by the wedding, you could always use those glasses as an indicator of when it was taken. I remember having a pair of glasses almost identical to yours ... I thought I was "styling". ;-)

Deals On Wheels said...
