Friday Farm Favorites: Happy Easter!

 

I had to do quite a bit of digging through family photo albums to find these gems.  You can probably tell by my lovely, patterned trousers that these time capsule treasures are circa 1970’s.

I am an only child and the daughter of a mother who documented almost every moment of my childhood.  I am fortunate that she took the time and trouble to photograph the momentous occasions as well as the everyday routines of my young life (e.g., see photos of sleeping baby holding onto Mommy’s ears).  I love looking through these old photographs and seeing my parents and grandparents when they were younger, photographs of birthday parties, family Christmas gatherings, and just playing on the farm.  All those memories are priceless to me now.

That being said, Mom made sure I never missed a holiday photo opportunity with Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny—EVER!  Let me just put it this way:  If there had been a leprechaun dressed in green velvet with a bunch of parents and kids waiting in line to see him at the local department store on St. Patrick’s Day, then there would be a picture of me dressed in green bell-bottoms, holding a four leaf clover, and sitting on the leprechaun’s lap.  Alas, there wasn’t; so, we both got lucky!  😉

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Easter from all of us at Green Hill Farm.

  1. I fear I am one of those mothers that documents every moment of their children’s lives too, much like your own. I’m so glad to hear you say how much you enjoy those photographs now. Gives me hope that my efforts to document are not all in vain!

    Also……am scared to say that those 70s pants look strangely familiar…….were we sharing a closet? OMG.
