day 137 of 365

It's my son Nick's 19th birthday today, and as much of a cliche as it is, it's hard to believe that the years went by so quickly. my son, my boy, my man, happy, happy birthday, and all wonderful things for the year ahead. I loved you the minute I set eyes on you, and am so proud of you and all you've accomplished. Happy day! Here's a little trip down memory lane.

Somwhere in here are the lost photo know, those years when I took a few pictures, never got around to developing them, and missed the years between 11 and 14 almost completely. Nick went from clean cut (above) to big haired wild boy (below).

Hey 19!


  1. Happy birthday to your son!

    The photos of your son brought back memories of my youth, but unfortunately, I don't have any photos of me growing up. The only photos I had, I lost when our house was burned down by rebels in a 11 year war in Sierra Leone.

    Thanks for sharing!
