Day 10 - An Old Photo

Day 10 - a photo taken over 10 years ago of you and how it makes you feel seeing it now.

This post was a little fun. Because it forced me to dig through an old box of photos. The hard part was trying to decide what to share here - a pic of me and my old friend A? Me and the original J*vi? The original Isa? Most of these photos made me smile. In fact, there's one lingering on my face right now. I couldn't find the photo I had in mind, the one from my own house of bad vibes, which is most likely for the best, particularly if I ever plan on running for office.

So I give you this one:

Summer 1998. Lithuania, or maybe Latvia. Just a few weeks after M and I first met, moved in together, and pretty much understood we would be spending the rest of our lives together. I can't explain it - I knew this as a fact before I actually liked him. Let alone loved. I think he might say the same thing. I am wearing his shirt. We are sleepless, probably haven't eaten in a day, and simply, blissfully happy. Hopping on trains, wandering cities, spending a lot of time in parks. Because, well, they're free.

Sure my hair is ridiculous. Whatever. 1998. I bet yours was too.

How does this photo make me feel now? Like it was yesterday. Like sometimes following your heart pays off. Like I am the luckiest girl in the world.

It's fun to see that photo of a joyful time in your life that I did not get to see in person.

But I must know what the *other* photo was.

As time goes on, I get more and more scared to look at our old photos. Ha ha ack sigh, smile.

No pictures of you ever, and then all of a sudden your face is all over the place!

Great picture, even with the hair. I had the same hair in 1998. I'm embarrassed to admit I was inspired by the movie 'Sliding Doors'.

It's a funny feeling that one, I know because when I met my DH, it certainly wasn't love at first sight, just knowing at first sight. As if I had known him my whole life. You look so happy!
