Photos of times past...

Do you have certain photos that when you see them, take you back to another time in your life more than others? This is one of those transporting photos...back to another time, another city, another season. I actually have a copy of this photo hanging by my computer and sometimes I just pause and stare at it. I look at the tiny details and remember that time. This photo is of my oldest DS and it is almost 10 years old. We lived in Columbus, Georgia in my most favorite of all the homes we have owned. Our backyard was a child's haven and we had this wonderful porch that led to all the fun. In this photo I see more than just my adorable oldest son...but I see the season of my DD with her purple jelly shoes and pink soccer ball to the left, I see the rose bush that was rotting when we bought the house but I (not painlessly) nursed back to health and trained to climb up the side of the porch, I see the table and chair set that DH bought me for my birthday the 1st year I was a Mommy, I see the bubbles that were part of our play time, the push car that I used to take DS1 for walks in. I am transported back to a sweet time...a time of a toddler in seersucker and sand.

Yes, I have photos like that, too...time seems to have passed so quickly when you look back at photos, doesn't it? It is a lovely photo, and I enjoyed hearing about the "journey" it takes you on, too.

This is such a sweet post, and precious picture. It brought back lots of memories to me too of my own babies when they were little, and long summer days. Thank you for posting it.

I love looking at old photos of myself then I ask mom "what was I like back then?" because well I know what I looked like and I even remember things I saw and said and did but I can't remember what I was LIKE!
