Flashback Friday

It’s that time of year, again: school pictures are back! In the past couple of weeks I’ve seen (but, ahem, not been given) the lovely school shots of some of my favorite kids: Abby, Katie, and Dani Dennis and Abby and Eli Kohl. Their photos took me on a little trip down memory lane, so I thought I might share one of my grade school pictures. Some of you have heard me talk about how it might have been obvious to all that I was born to have a problem with my weight, since I often (in my head, only) identified my clothing by the food item it reminded me of. In this photo, I am wearing what I affectionately referred to as my “fruit cocktail” dress. Handmade by my talented mother, Shirley, by the way!
