I am 24 today! I decided I'd post a picture from each birthday (or close as I could get) over the past 24 years. I felt slightly narcissistic while doing this, but I love old pictures and I was such a cute kid, I just went ahead with it.
1989 to 1997
Can we take a minute to appreciate the Pocahontas balloon in the 1995 picture and the Dr. Barbie set in the 1997 picture? The 90's were pretty awesome. Also, for my 6th birthday (1995) my Papa surprised me with an ice cream cake even though my mom or grandma had made one for the party. He was just about at the end, but he still knew I liked ice cream cake.
1998 to 2006
I really wish you could see the jacket tied around my waist in 1999 and how baggy my jeans were in 2000, but we'll save those for another post. I seriously miss my hair from 2004 and 2005.
2007 to 2012
I really enjoy how my faces in 2009 and 2012 look pretty much the same. The guy in the 2007 picture is Tyler, Jarrod's best friend who now lives far away *insert sad face*.
Then I figured I'd take a quick laptop camera picture for this year. Then Quinn decided to pose for the second one.
I don't even know.
So, happy birthday to me! To everybody I've known over the years, thanks for making me more awesome, even if it was because you sucked and I had to learn how to deal with it.
