One of the fun things I like about packing and unpacking for a move is that it gives you a chance to go through all your stuff. It can be overwhelming and I often wonder how we accumulate so much, but when it comes to packing/unpacking photo albums I always like to take the time to look through them. In the months before our Europe trip, i ventured into the storage room at my dad’s house and pulled out the stuff from my mom’s Europe trip she took back in 1982 or 83. My mom’s trip has always been the inspiration for me to travel. I loved hearing about her trip, although she never went into too much detail. But she did keep a scrapbook of momentos and several photo albums! I decided I’d like to have those photo albums so after finding them at my dad’s house I brought them home with me but didnt look at them again for a while. But when I was unpacking here I took the time to look through them and they were even more special and fun to look at since Calder and I had just gotten back from our OWN trip. It made me wish so bad that she was here to trade stories and memories with! I thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures and show you my mom when she was MY age! (thats weird to think about!)
great hair, mom 🙂 I like her friend’s Ireland sweatshirt though!
I like the candid-ness of this photo 🙂
We didn’t go to too many of the same destinations as my mom did, but I definitely think I got my travel bug from her! Hope you enjoyed these vintage pictures as much as I do 🙂
