80's FLASHBACK ALERT!!! (almost 25 years ago)
While I was going through some old pictures, I came across some old modeling pictures of mine. Yes...it's true...a long, LONG time ago I was in FRONT of the camera instead of always behind it.
These made me laugh for many reasons. First the leggings with huge t-shirts and sweatshirts with shoulder pads. And then the big hair and the ever-so-sultry look on my 16 year old face. Hilarious! I remember the photographers always told me not to smile so big. Oh yeah....definitely don't smile so big....makes you look 16.
Oh youth. I wish I appreciated those times more than I did. I wanted to be older and thinner. And although it's fun to look back at the flawless skin and youthful physique....I wouldn't go back for anything in the world! I love who you become after you lived a bit.
"All of these lines upon my face.
Tell you the story of who I am.
So many stories of where I've been.
And how I got to where I am."
