I’m working on a super secret project with my grandmothers that includes scanning a lot of family photos. I’ve planned on it taking several months and am glad I have the time; I love this kind of chronicling.

In the process, I ran across some pretty fabulous photos:

My mom and Dad

My parents are so damn cute in this photo! My mom says it was taken at the state fair when they were in high school. I love how soft focus glam my she is and how long my dad’s hair is.

My mama

Speaking of hair — mama mia! This is her high school graduation photo. Meow! So pretty!

Back to my secrets,

  1. No wonder you’re such a beauty – look at your folks! I mean, yes, I’ve seen them now and they are lovely, but *wolf whistle* wow πŸ™‚

  2. You, my dear, are a smart, smart girl. Spending time doing things like this with your grandmothers is absolutely wonderful. I wish I could. I am so glad you are taking advantage! Can’t wait to hear/see your secret when it’s completed! πŸ™‚

  3. These pictures are so beautiful !
    Your mum and dad look so sweet together πŸ™‚
    Don’t you just love digging into family photos ?!

    Looks like a sweet and fun secret project !

  4. I’m so glad you are taking the time to save your family’s photos on whatever your secret project is. Oooh, fun!

    Really, though, this is big for generations to come. Kudos to you.

  5. So cute! My parents were HS sweethearts and I love the pictures of them together when they were so young. There’s just something about those pictures developed in the late 60s/early 70s that make everything look so dreamy. I’m working on putting together a family picture wall in my living room… funny how it takes a new addition to make displaying all those family pictures a high priority!

  6. oh my word i LOVE that photo!! what a treasure!! i found you from taylor’s blog…adorable blog you have lady!! have an awesome weekend πŸ™‚

  7. Such a “Love Story” vibe, only so much happier! What a cute couple, I can certainly see where you come from!

  8. Your mom looks like a Hollywood movie star and your dad looks like he could have been best friends with James Dean. And the caption under your Flicker Photo is right-on; you are a perfect 50/50.

  9. They were so really beautiful in that pic! (so they still are today…) Looking at your young dad I can see much of a resemblance between the two of you!

  10. I agree with Gracie – boy do you look like your dad, but I see your mom in there, too. Isn’t it neat to have all these photos? Enjoy your project!
