ohhhhhh and friends are friends foreva'....

my childhood friend kathryn is in town for a little while before she sails off to peru to be a missionary. what? i know, craziness. you can go to her blog and read more about her journey if you want, you blogstalker, you.

anyshways...kathryn and i were big timers in amarillo, texas. we were 10 years old in these pics maybe. i don't know, maybe more like 8? i had delicious stringy hair and wore sleeveless shirts constantly. summers were hot, don't you make fun.

so while they're in town,  i got to take pictures of her family.  it's crazy to think that us kids grew up and had our own bundles of troub...uhhmmm....JOY.

her hair is still long and pretty and she's still more photogenic than i will ever be. dammit. but i still love her.

maybe they'll make fun of these pictures on their own blogs one day. i don't know. but i hope they are friends despite the distance between them like their mommies always were.

  1. Cute pics! My BF from my hometown was just here visiting for the weekend and I had the same idea! Only, I had buck teeth and a flower bang...actually it looked more like a satellite dish.

  9. auj,
    no you can not have MY sewing machine. i was emotionally abused when the mouse died in my old one. so this time i am going to use it. i have about 200 yards of fabric in my basement that i need to do something with. but you can borrow it anytime...haha.

    and chelsea,
    yes, these were taken with the new cam. glorious. did you know em is selling her old one for $350? you should buy it...just sayin'!

  10. I love your photos! Do you use photoshop to edit the pics? If so, do you have any suggestions for more inexpensive software/websites? I use picnic but it just doesn't seem to have very many effects.

  11. i use lightroom...and i don't know as much about the other cheaper programs, but there's just no substitute for lightroom or photoshop! splurge...

    and does someone know how to change the settings to where i can just email people when they ask me something(instead of posting in my comments?). haha. you would think i could figure it out!
