Welcome to Day 26 of the 31 Day Blogging Challenge in July. I cannot believe it’s the last week! I’m a little bit sad but also looking forward to weekly posting instead of daily. Also, yesterday’s post about my 5 favourite blogs was my 100th! May there be many more to come…
Today, I’m going to be sharing a few old photographs of yours truly. Last weekend, I went back home to my mum’s and we pored over old photo albums selecting some favourites. I love how quickly memories flood back when gazing at an image of the past. I hope you enjoy the ones I chose! P.S I apologise for the poor quality!
This is me as a baby in my christening dress sitting on my parents bed. My great grandmother who was a brilliant seamstress made it for my mother’s christening and then it was passed onto me so it’s pretty special. My mum still has it hidden away somewhere!
Here I’m about 4-5 years old standing in my old grandparents house with my Nonno. I was very close with him and today he would’ve been 90 years old. I miss you every single day Nonno and wish you could’ve seen me get married this year…
This is me on my first day of Primary School! I went to Goonawarra Primary in Sunbury where I grew up. In case you couldn’t tell…I was really excited! Even as a young girl, I wore headbands in my hair which I wear regularly today.
On my 8th birthday, I was lucky enough to be in New York! Here is me and my sister standing in front of the Statue of Liberty. We spent the day exploring Ellis Island & at night, my family took me out to celebrate in Little Italy. Funny story: my parents had pre-ordered me a birthday cake and when it arrived on the table, there was a slice missing! I remember it being delicious anyhow!
I was incredibly fortunate to meet Debbie Reynolds at her show in Vegas with my family. Debbie Reynolds is Carrie Fisher’s mother (Princess Leia) but she is also a character in my all time favourite TV show Will & Grace. She was so kind, funny and full of energy. I’ll never forget her warmth that evening.
When I was 15, my parents took me to China and that was where I fell in love with the country only to return by myself years later. This is me on a scorching summers day climbing The Great Wall in Beijing. I remember it being so hot. Funnily enough, when I returned to The Great Wall at 20 years of age, it was winter and I still struggled in the cold to ascend the massive steps. It truly is a wonder to behold and be upon.
This is an iconic photo of me and my friends in Year 7 for my 13th birthday. We went bowling and to see a movie. What I love about this photo is that besides Matt (boy in the orange shirt) I am still best friends with Christine (or Graham as I call her) and Kenny!
Fast forward to our mid 20’s where I am still hanging out with Graham & Kenny!
I hope you enjoyed some of my old photographs. I could’ve shared hundreds but best to keep it short and sweet. Do you have any old photographs? What are your favourites?
See you tomorrow! Peace & Love xoxo
I love these photos, Bec. I recognise you in all of them. I don’t have many photos of my childhood, but the ones that I have I cherish them. Always takes me on a trip down memory lane. Haha, believe it or not I was quite a fat baby and I was actually very tanned as a teenager 😀
Thank you Mabel!! I would love to see baby photos of you! You would’ve been so cute!
