This photos lives on my nightstand.  This is my Aunt(ish) Nancy and it’s a photo of her I never saw until after she died.  It reminds me that people carry a whole host of stories and happenings with them and not to judge or be to quick to “sum” people up.  We all have stories to tell and I should be so lucky to hear them.

Not that I ever wrote her off but I didn’t ask who she was in her heart.  I like to think this might be how she saw herself, right up to the end.


Here are the folks who are also posting Vintage Photo Friday.

Green Jello

Knot Sew Crafty

Sheep on a Spring

Pineapples & Artichokes

Let me know if you want to join in or bail out and I will edit accordingly!


Our homework this weekend is to ask 1 person to tell us a story about themselves from before we knew them.  Could be a good blog post.

Have a great weekend!

    I never saw that photo before either. Wonderful picture of Nancy. She HAD some stories to tell. RW can share some with you, but your question that you posed is a good one. Do we really know who we are in our hearts? A good question to ponder.
