A Thousand Words Thursday - A Million Years Ago

Cheaper Than Therapy


I dug these photos up the other night. We used to live in a bigger city, closer to everything. It was nice because stores and gas stations were open 24 hours and were only at most 15 minutes away. We had a nice big apartment right downtown. Well, it's nice and big for a newly family of four. Two bedrooms, a dining room, kitchen, living room, etc. Now I can't imagine only having two bedrooms. We have waaaay too much crap to ever go back! I also can't imagine hauling 4 kids up 3 full flights of stairs every time we come home, parking as close to the building as we can manage.
It's funny, I don't remember either of these kids being so short. Please disregard all the chipped paint. I'm fairly certain no one ate it.

This one is in our apartment kitchen. The inside of the cupboards were painted candy-apple red when we moved in. I changed them to dark green inside. I thought it looked nice, but I remember showing the place to a prospective renter and they commented on how they'd have to repaint the inside of the cupboards! I fooled them, though, because the real ugly was the Formica I covered in contact paper. I ripped it all off before we left. Enjoy your kitchen!!
Here we have A.M. and I making dinner.

lol! love it. kinda like when my husband got a good price for selling his car because of the stereo...so he sells the car and goes back and rips out the stereo.

Makes you think of simpler times... but I know you wouldn't change anything, neither would I. But it is nice to look back.

I don't have a ton of old pictures, but I do like getting them out sometimes and reminiscing.

what a sweet trip down memory lane. isn't it amazing that no matter what size house you have you can always manage to fill it up?

I can't imagine hauling ONE kid up three full flights of stairs! Wow! However, I can't wait until we move out of Apartmentville and into Homeownerland.
