What were you doing 5, 10 and 20 years ago?
5 Years - We moved home from Chicago, bought our first house and were getting ready to move in. We lived in my parent's barn from around July - October of that year(barn being much nicer than it sounds!). New house, new town (kind of) and getting ready to start a family! Lots of changes.
10 Years - The young group days! I was living in an apartment in Normal with three other girls. It was my first time to live away from home. College Weekends were THE highlight. I was starting my second year at Heartland Community College (before it had a nice campus), taking accounting classes in double wide trailers with my cousin Dave. Old friendships were changing (I was in my first wedding - Jill and Andy's!), new friendships were being formed and very special memories were created!
20 Years - The 4th grade. Not my prettiest year - glasses and braces. AND, I had THE haircut that year. The one that looked like a lion's mane. I remember getting it - I had pointed to a picture of a page boy haircut. The women cutting my hair thought I meant the one on the next page (the one that looked like a lion's mane). I cried when she was done. It was quite traumatic, but I survived (and when it grew out a little was able to get the haircut I really wanted!)
