Barefoot Childhood is participating in a really fun little game, and I decided to play along. The rules are as follows: Go to your eighth folder (of pictures); choose the eighth photo…then tell the story.
Here’s what I found:
So this is Christmas 2007 (probably not Christmas day, but somewhere right around there). We are just outside of Clarksville, Arkansas, where Tim’s brother and his family lived at the time. In this photo, Tim and I were enjoying the scenery of a neighboring town. We are actually in the parking lot of a Catholic church that has some of the best real estate in the area…on the top of the hill! Right around this area are a few vineyards where you can sample the finest wine that Arkansas has to offer. It’s mediocre stuff, but visiting the wineries was fun, anyway!
To the casual observer, we may look exactly the same now. But when I look at this shot from 2 1/2 years ago, I’m struck by how much younger we seem. We were probably just very well-rested. Sigh…
I’m supposed to tag other people to play along, but if I try for that, I’ll never get this post finished (just being honest). So if you have a blog, please play along. If you don’t have a blog, still do the exercise and tell me what you found! It was kind of fun to go digging through a folder I haven’t looked at in a long time!
