spt

i will come back to this post at some point, to jot down my "back to school memories."

but, for now, i believe the photos may speak louder than any words i could string together.

i am frustrated that the scanned images will not upload, and that the photo-of-the-photo option is blurry, but i believe the essence of elementary school in the late 70s has been captured here.

behold...





as awkward as she may appear, i LOVE that little girl!

Emmanuelle said...

That's right, you did ever get your so nice smile. But I think you must be glad to wear contact today.
I put a little bit to much picture on mine. I had not understand it was just school memories.
Have a nice day :)

Lelly I love this post of yours...and I hope I never forget what I felt when I read this line of yours "as awkward as she may appear, i LOVE that little girl!" What a wonderful sentence.

Loving the little girl inside us is a great thing. I wish I had all my pictures. I must scavenge around next time I visit my parents.

HotMama said...

I love seeing pictures of people, even strangers! Doesn't it just feel like yesterday (of course I still feel like I'm 24 inside).

(found you through cynthia, & nikki)

Amy said...

Love it! It is rather personally shocking to realize how crazily styles have changed since school days. I always thought I was fairly neutral, non-trendy, but my pics are still totally dated.

Great SPT!

Rachel said...

Loving these pictures! SO classic! Those are some RAD glasses, if you don't mind me saying! Thanks for another FUN SPT!

Diana said...

I love that behind the classes and hair it still looks like you. You have such a beautiful smile.

Claudissima said...

Amy & James said...

This was SO fun! I'm loving looking at everyone's pictures.

kristi brooke said...

the memory of those double photos!

Lindsay said...

I admit I didn't post some of my most flattering pictures. This was fun. I am glad I got some of my memories written down too.

michelle said...

I completely forgot about those photos with the profile silhouette! So funny!

michelle said...

p.s. to Jane's comment -- that sentence about loving that little girl is just priceless!

Michelle A. said...

Yikes about the scanner and that it's giving you so much trouble. Love the pictures Lelly!

donna said...

I love the pictures. The glasses are the best.

Amanda :-) said...

I had glasses like that. We didn't have much choice in designs back then, did we?

Ahh, never mind the blurriness - it adds to that 'foggy' 70s 'look' that most photographs had anyway!

Denise said...

That was a really fun trip down memory lane! This was a fun SPT to do. Memories...light the corners of my mind...

Barb said...

Classic 70's what a great time to grow up.

Lucy said...

I'm glad you're doing these again. Mine wasn't on Tuesday but better late than never, right:)

You are a cute little girl.
