Old Family Photo


A blast from the past.  From left to right that's me, Gregg holding our son Brad and his mom Bea.  Gregg found this in his collection on his computer and reshared it with me, a much treasured photo as you can imagine. We have lots of old photos stored in boxes that we still need to go through and get on line. This photo was taken when we were living in Monterey, California in 1983. I believe Gregg's sister took the photo. Gregg's mom and his sister visited us when Gregg was going to the Navy Postgraduate School. Our son must have been four.  It was quite a misty day.  No blue skies there that day.

  3. What a beautiful photo, Denise, you look radiant. :) And your header...perhaps it is just me, but it looks as if the horses are smiling. Whether or not they are, one thing is certain. Every time I visit your blog I leave with a smile. Thank you for sharing.

  10. What a pretty and young mom I see in the picture. I could be mistaken but it would be a foreshadowing of your interest in photography, if that is a camera in your hand. :)

  20. A wonderful picture! I hope you will be showing us more as you go through them. I tried to guess the year, but was wrong. The clothes really are kind of classic. I love seeing the younger you. You and your husband are truly a beautiful couple.

  29. I can see why this is a treasured photo. Your son in the arms of his Daddy is very sweet and must have been a special occasion with Gregg's Mom and sister with you. I treasure the ones of my mother-in-law with our children.
