Easter is coming soon, so let’s look back at Easter as it appeared in the 1960s — in this case, Easter 1967: Here I am, age 2, with my mom. We’re in the front yard on Easter morning. I wish the photo was closer-up, but still, I like seeing our house (the beloved split-level so […]

Today, let’s take a look at my childhood dollhouse: From a little searching, I see that it is most likely made by Marx. I don’t remember how I came to get it, but it was part of my life for as long as I can remember. This is the front, although honestly, I spent very […]

How about waxing nostalgic over a few more vintage childhood photos? I’ve chosen a few, from January 1977. Sure, I’d like to choose March. But, since our weather patterns are decidedly Arctic with no indication of changing anytime soon, January seemed more appropriate.

My oldest daughter is a high school senior, and I’ve found that when my kids go through any stage, it brings me back to when I went through it myself. Here’s a photo of me in my senior year pre-calculus class, in the 1980s. First, of course, we notice the hair and glasses. Oh, my. […]

Recently, my aunt sent me a link to an article about migraines. I feel blessed to never have had a migraine, but several in my family do suffer from them. The article suggested that highly sensitive people are more prone to them, and after reading it, I felt even more grateful not to have these […]

The other day, I came across this: It’s a little bank from my childhood, but my memories are about what it represents: World Book Encyclopedia. Remember encyclopedias? Remember when you had a question about something, and instead of heading to Google, you actually walked to the shelf of encyclopedias and looked it up? Yeah, it’s […]
