Flashback Friday: Kickoff

Feb 18th
Summer2006FF

I love old photos. I’m quite fond of old photos of me or my husband or other family members when we were kids. I also love dipping into Little Miss’ archives and finding old memories and comparing her then and now. I get all nostalgic and smiley.

I wondered if other people might feel the same way? The Gallery and Silent Sunday have galvanised the blogging community and got people to dust off their cameras and smartphones and even put those all-in-one printers to use! I would never dream of reaching their heights but if you’re interested in trawling back through the photo archives, then come on over to Cafe Bebe every Friday for Flashback Friday.

For now, let’s just get the ball rolling. Look back in your photo archives. It can be a picture of you as a child…your child in the early days/months/years…your house before a makeover…a winter photo…a “one year ago today” photo…The sky’s the limit. Just take us back in time. Share some words to take us there and we can all get nostalgic and smiley remembering “when”.

This picture makes me happy. This photo was taken in July of 2006; over a year before Little Miss was even implanted. We were at Chatsworth House with my sister-in-law and her children, my inlaws and nanny-in-law. Of course our precious Sinjin was along as well. The day, as you can see, was truly beautiful and everyone had a brilliant time.

Sinjin had only joined us in May of 2006 after a stressful journey across the ocean. He thoroughly enjoyed every second of his life here in England and although we miss him terribly, I’m so glad we had moments like these together and photos to remember him always.

See, isn’t it fun to look back on days gone by? Doesn’t it just make you nostalgic and smiley? If it does, feel free to dig around in your files for an image to share, create a post in which to display it and a few words to tell us why it’s so special to you and press publish.

Then, the important part. You must come back to Cafe Bebe and add your linky in the gadget below. Then visit a few blogs to continue the nostalgia and smiley-ness. Simples!
