Friday Photo Flashback-- The angry years

Today I am joining Alicia at More than Words again for Friday Photo Flashback.

If there are very few photos of me when I was little, there are even less of me as a teen, or how I would call them, my "angry years". Not that I was angry all the time, but for what you see in the photos, I may as well. I never smiled. Don´t ask me why. But no one else is showing teeth is these photos, so maybe it was in back then... :)... you know, back in my time :).



This photo was taken in 1998, in the end of April. I remember because my sister had move to the States the december before and my mom was going there to visit them. She was going to spend mother´s day with her in AL, so before she left, the whole family went together to a restaurant to celebrate it with her early.

In the photo I am with my nephew and niece. I am the one on the right of the photo. Yes, my hair was that short. I went through a time for a couple of years that I kept cutting my hair shorter and shorter. This was when I hit rock bottom :). It may be funky, but it was sooooo comfortable. Wash hair, hair gel and go!

That october was when I met Matthew. He told me if my hair hadn´t grown by then he wouldn´t had like me.... or so he says :). He really doesn´t like hair that short in girls, at least his girl.



This one was taken just a few months earlier (notice my hair is longer). It must be taken around october november 1997, because those were taken from my sister before she moved. I am the one on the top right, the other two are my nieces.

So, everyone, have a wonderful weekend!!!

Sorry you had a rough few years. I'm sure you are all smiles now though =) Fun flashback photos.

I think I had a couple of pictures like that too (where I wasn't smiling). I think it was a "cool" thing to do..lol!

But, I do love that second picture of you! You're so pretty!

Sometimes it´s good to remember what we came from so that we appreciate even more what we have.

I too went through short short hair days.. even shaved in the back. ;) But won´t do that again.

Un abrazo

That's so humiliating. You posted a picture of my teenage years when I was chubby, had huge eyebrows and didn't know how to style my hair, lol it's ok, I'm over it! I remember your hair like that though! I thought it was cool at that time and remember when you would style it before work at my house, hehe

I hardly have any photos of me from my teenage years and college. That is probably a good thing :-) I think you look good in short hair!

I'm glad that you started smiling in pictures again...you have such a pretty smile!

Stuff could always be worse said...

I know about the not smiling in pictures and my husband loves long hair but now I have gone back to shorter hair, he hates it but I like it.

Those are so much fun. I love looking at old photos. Maybe I'll do some of those one of these days.

BTW, (spainforforchist dot com) isn't an e-amil address. I'm interested in your idea but you're gonna have to come up with a viable e-mail! :o)

Oh those are cute pics my friend! But then again, you are a cute person. And I think Matthew would have liked you whether you had long hair or short. When it's meant to be, it's just right!

Take care my friend!
Hope your week is off to a great one!
