Humble Beginnings Plus

Once Upon a Time

Grace, Haley, Kaya, Kirsten, Lanie, Lea, Melody, Xyra, all

Have you ever found something interesting while reorganizing and wanted to share it?
We debated saving this for January 8, 2017 to celebrate our 4th Blogiversary...
But it was too fun not to share now.

In a Living Room Not So Far Away

If you've read my bio you know that I arrived around the turn of the century. Not Samantha's, but 2000 or 2001 if you're a purist. Well, Xyra and Franz got their first digital camera in 2006 and Xyra decided to practice with it. "Lightbulb!" Catalog my belongings. Don't forget I was an only until 2009. Here are the first few pages of the experiment.

She didn't have the layout quite where she wanted it, but worked with it.
The outfit photo is on back of the page with the description.
So here you see the Urban Outfit next to the Mod Outfit description.

In 2013, Xyra read her first blog and liked it a lot. "Lightbulb!" Start a blog and share these photos with the community. 
We've gone from seasonal shifts in attire to almost daily. (giggles) We hope to continue for a long time.
Isn't this a fun memory?

Now More Fun

Writing a blog uses creativity, grammar, spelling, words, punctuation, etc. That brings us to...
