Time Travel Tuesdays~

Let us journey back in time to those marvelous days of yesteryear. That wonderful time of slenderness. This photo is from the spring of 1981. Here you see a 23 year old me and my sweet first baby Sarah who had just celebrated her first birthday. We are all dressed up and ready to walk across the parking lot to the Manavu LDS Chapel for church. We lived at "Moon Apartments" in Provo, Utah, only one of two married couples in the complex. The other couple were the mangers and we lived below them. The little building is still there in the middle of the parking lot but I believe Sarah and I would be standing in the present-day swimming pool!

The sun was bright that day and you cannot make out the sweet baby blue of Sarah's dress. She is wearing soft, white leather dress shoes and her ruffly bum tights!
I am wearing the same dress I wore to the temple the day Dee and I were married just 21 months earlier! It is oh-so 1980 with it's blousing top in a shade of dusty pink. Do you notice anything else that is very 80's, even though we were just getting into the decade? Hint...look at my head!

If I have my bearings straight you would be really close to the pool (just about 30 ft south and and another 30 to the east) and another thing that is so great is that in the picture, just between those two building (where you can make out where a tree is, thats totally where our apartment is right NOW....man, just think about how things have come full circle!

Wow what great memories. I loved the 80's. They were so good! I love your hair! Seriously, that is one of the things I miss the most is the hair in the 80's.

Oh your hair is just like Farrah! Love the 80's and your dress. The cars are cool in the background too.

Look at cute little me, squinting in the sun! You were such a stylish young Mom! My first birthday- that was a good one! I got Beanda! This picture makes me want to look at all the pictures from that time period; one of my favorites is the one of me and Dad with me wearing his water polo cap! (Although I think I was over two when that one was taken . . .)
