Get to know me......

photographs copyright 2007
I was feeling very nostaligic yesterday so I started looking through old photographs.

I thought you might like to see who you're talking to, so this is me.............

Aged about one with Mum, Dad and Teddy.







Here's me and Mum, I think I'm about three here.






I'm five here. Dad took me to a photographer to have this taken. I'm all dolled up in my new dress and my patent shoes. I loved those shoes!


This was the dress I wouldn't take off unless Mum promised to have it washed, dried and ironed for the next morning!




This is a school photograph taken when I was fourteen, when MWM fell in love with me.







At twenty-two and a Mum already.








Here's me at 40, on holiday in Turkey. I wasn't drinking wine that night, it looks like Raki and water!





And here I am today. Actually the photo is a couple of years old, but I haven't changed very much, apart from my hair is a different style and I've got a couple more wrinkles!




My knee
Monday 7th May
A step back today, it's quite stiff so I guess I'll have to do more exercises today.

Lovely to see you through the years!! I received a scanner for my birthday and I can't wait to get it all set up so I can scan some of my old family photos! :o)

Sorry to hear the knee isn't doing too well, I hope you are much better very soon :o) {{HUGS}}

I love seeing pictures of fellow bloggers! I just put some up myself actually.

You look great by the way. :)

What wonderful photos ~ you are so pretty!! And what a precious little girl you were, too. It is such a good idea to post the photos of yourself. You're right, now I can picture you in my mind when I read your blog! Hope your knee loosens up today ~ Dawn :)

We have had a scanner for a while but I only learnt how to use it yesterday. Now I'm busy looking through all our photographs!

I'm sure my knee will be fine I just need to exercise it more to loosen it up. Thanks for the good wishes.

I have just seen your photos - you look great too!

Akelamalu said...

Why thank you Dawn. :)

It is good to picture someone as you write, makes it more personal I think.

You look wonderful.

Catch said...

You are a very attractive young lady! Thank you for sharing!

GEWELS said...

Great pictures- You are even more beautiful now than at 22. And you were very pretty then. I actually think most women get better looking through the years.
At least I'm hoping so.

Keep up with the exercises for that knee. Pretty soon you'll be jumping rope

Rhea said...

It's cool to see photos of bloggers. Is that nostalgic music?

Josh said...

You are a beautiful lady. Inside & out. Thanks for sharing the photos.

I just came back to my blog and saw that some photos had disappeared. I've put them back up now - hopefully they'll stay.

Afternoon Akelamalu,

Thank you SO much for sharing your pictures with us. I LOVE to look at old photos. They FEEL so wonderful!

I think people look beautiful with life experience behind them.

Like "fine wine"....it gets better with age!

Have a wonderful day Akelamalu!

Be well,
Ron

What a wonderful post. I don't know if I could find either the photos or courage to show the awkward years. Looks like you skipped right through them and still look great.
