Old times

It is Friday again and time for Friday Photo Flashback. I am enjoying this because it is giving me an excuse to look back at all those pre-digital photos. I have to say I miss paper photos.



So this is a photo taken just a few minutes before my then boyfriend (actually he wouldn´t ask me to be his girlfriend for another week) told me for first time that he was falling in love with me. Aaaawwwwww........

He took me to a lake nearby our city. It was early November and the leaves in the trees were beautiful with all of the changing colors. We was trying to get me to take a photo with him, but back then I hated me in photos even more than I do know :)... don´t know why :). Finally I let him take one. And now I am so glad because I have this as a memory of that special day.

We had just met a couple of weeks earlier, but God was moving our feelings so fast that it didn´t feel early, and it was what both of us were feeling.... I better stop because I am about to get all mushy.........

This is a photo with me, my mom and a couple of my sisters (missing 2). I was maybe.....18-19 years old. I am the one all the way on the left of the photo in case you are wondering :)


For more ¨Friday Photo Flashback¨head over to Alicia´s at ¨More than Words¨
Have a great day ladies. I have company today for lunch, so I better go clean my house and get everyone ready. Today is a holiday here in Spain, so it has been feeling like saturday.

Pilar, Superman and I had the same immediate connection. I remember I called an canceled a date I had made with another young man after my first date with Superman. I just knew he was the one for me.
