Old Photo Day

Stevensmaybe.jpg Originally uploaded by Dogwood Girl. In case you haven’t noticed, I heart old photos. This is one that I found in my mom’s family photos. Based on the photos it was found with, I’m pretty sure it is a picture of one or more of the Stevens family. Frankly, it really bums me out […]

Fast Friends

Fast Friends Originally uploaded by Dogwood Girl. My sister is pregnant and is in the ‘get the baby out” stage, or maybe it is the “I think i changed my mind. I don’t really want to have this baby” stage. Either way, i was thinking that after bombarding her labor stories, which can be kind […]

Happy Birthday, Pop!
