novelphoto complete dejavu right now... i feel like I'm back in texas watching little Lee pull that very same toy around our cul-de-sac circa 2002. it's so weird to me, because before i had thaddeus i would say how I would like to just hold Lee and Louisa as babies again. having him makes it feel like i got my wish #vscocam 3d

novelphoto hunting for horses on assateague and Chincoteague for #springbreak2015... it's her dream come true 1w
  •   nellie_dolls Oh my goodness! We camped on assateague and I woke up in my tent ( only teddy and I in it) to the sound of a horse breathing against it....Looked out to see I was surrounded and they were sleeping right next to me! I died of fright... Afraid they would just run right through it and over us!! 1w
  •   nellie_dolls I should clarify it was a tiny tiny tent... One brian uses for backpacking. 1w
  •   novelphoto Oh! I would be terrified of a stampede too @nellie_dolls 1w
  •   brianacara Did you see a lot? Is weezers in heaven? 1w
  •   novelphoto Just one so far, but lots of so we know they're there we didn't get here until around 7ish though @brianacara 1w
  •   mkvphoyt That is so amazingly cool!! Have fun! Where is this btw? 1w
  •   novelphoto @mkvphoyt this is in assateague island which runs through Maryland and Virginia. We went into Chincoteague where the book Misty (the horse) was based. It was very neat! 1w

  •   brianacara Love that cupboard! 2w
  •   thevintagefrock Just read your posts.... I completely relate to your earlier March post! I have finally started sewing again, and it's felt like I'm shaking the cobwebs out of my head and seeing things in a creative and happy light again. @americanfamily I love that quote you used!!! Ok, I'm done now:) 2w
  •   snap.art.photography It's awesome. 2w
  •   novelphoto Yes. I don't know if maybe it was the weather or what, but I just wasn't feeling it lol @thevintagefrock 2w
  •   americanfamily ️I did too! Glad you enjoyed it@thevintagefrock 2w
  •   vintagetype26 Just read the posts as well, the March 6th post speaks VOLUMES to me!! I quit my job at Giant 3months ago & have been in a funk ever since. After fourteen years there I've been feeling a little lost. Thank you for posting. It gives me inspiration!! 2w
  •   novelphoto Oh Katie! That's a big deal. What have you been up to? I mean. I am glad it wasn't just me. I was beginning to think I was having a midlife crisis I hope you channel that treasure hunting into a business venture. Wouldn't that be fun? @vintagetype26 2w

novelphoto Thaddeus or Lee? the resemblance is uncanny...maybe i should label these pictures for when I'm older #whichisverysoon 2w
  •   mkvphoyt Wow I was wondering myself...a little blonder than Thaddeus tho right?? 2w
  •   vintagetype26 Lol!! I was just going though pics with mom-mom, she was saying "I really should label these!" #wordsfromthewise 2w
  •   brianacara I know! So many of Lordy look like Estelle, and in my head I'm thinking " I'll always remember who's who".. Thaddeus and lee have the exact same profile 2w
  •   americanfamily Whoa! Twins 2w
  •   holly_katrina All mine look different! So strange. And how gulpingly sad over us all being done having children soon. 2w
