i was staying at my parents house for a few days over Christmas I found some of my old photo albums. These first three photos were tucked in the back of a photo album i made druing my freshman year of college (i must have brought them with me to keep my family close. . . even though I my parents lived down the block from the UVM campus). Anyway. I just love them so much. The photo above is my stunning mom (age 21) camping out on a beach in Corfu. The stud is not my dad. Some handsome English boy my mom met/traveled around Greece with for a bit while she and her best friend were doing the whole European backpack adventure thing.
Below is my absolute favorite family portrait. We are up in Montgomery, VT at my grandparents farmhouse. Here's why I love it so much: My sister Alden's wind spinny rainbow cap, how my dad's hand on my mom's shoulder looks like it could be my hand (if i had a freakishly large club hand), and that my sister's doll isn't exactly a redheaded Raggedy Ann.
My sister with the fish she caught. Me with the Goldfish Cracker i'm about to eat.
Freshman in College Molly.
Look how long my hair was!! Gotta love the Absolute UVM shirt (some 40+ guy came to my dorm room door selling them. of course i let him in and gave him the $20 for one).
Ok, now THIS is one my favorite: What a typical freshman year college room (if it's 2002 and you go to The University of Vermont) . . . Prayer flags, hippie wall hangings, paper lanterns, Bob Marley poster, "Start a Revolution, Stop Hating Your Body" screenprint on my mini-fridge, various images torn from Rolling Stone of bands i thought i should have on my wall: PHISH, John Lennon, Ben Harper, Ani DiFranco, Bob Dylan and Kurt Cobain. Oh Man.
This one is pretty special too. A night out on the town in Montreal with my girlfriends my freshman year. Things to note: we are all wearing short necklaces with some sort of pendant, either a black or white tank top, and a skirt (Cait and I handmade ours from a couple pairs of jeans). So much originality displayed here. Holy Cow.
