Throw back

On Sun I opened up my photo storage boxes and looked through a bunch of old photos, looking for something specific.  During my search I found a couple of OLD photos of me that I thought would be fun to share.
This photo was taken 27 years ago, in the spring of 1992.  I was 28 years old.  I was on vacation visiting family, friends, and destinations in CA and one of my stops was Hollywood where my uncle and his wife lived.  I believe she took this photo of me standing next to the door at Gucci on Rodeo Dr in Beverly Hills.  The sunglasses in my hair had tortoise shell frames and I loved them.

Yes, I was significantly thinner.  And blonder.  I used to spray Sun In on my hair and then use a blow dryer to achieve this natural, sun-kissed blonde look.  Between the Jams shorts, mock neck shirt and beachy blonde hair, I was serving up Surfer Dude Realness, Huntee.  Believe it or not, this was BEFORE I came 'out'.

Fast forward 3 years and there's this:
This photo was taken 24 years ago in the spring of 1995.  I was 31 years old. I was on vacation in Key West FL with my boyfriend at the time and another couple.  I think we stayed at the Island House resort.  We were out to dinner (I don't remember where) when my boyfriend took this photo.  Again I have blonde, dramatic hair but at least I was 'out' by this time.

I think I'm going to find a few more old photos to share.  They're funny to look at, but they also conjur up good ol' memories.
