facebook pictures over the years!

So, I saw this on my girl Holly's Blog and totally knew I wanted to do it! So fun :)

Suzy came up with the idea & I saw Alice did it toooo, so here is my post:

1) post your first ever facebook profile picture.
2) pick one photo {only one} from each consecutive year up to the present one.
3) explain.

I just realized I didn't include my first ever facebook profile picture because I feel like I deleted the first one I ever had, maybe. So instead I will start with one photo from every year (even though I am doing more than one because there are some amazing memories there) - Looking through my old profile pictures reminded me of so many amazing times in my life! Damn. Just got reminded of how lucky I am! So many incredible people in my life:) LIFE IS GOOD!

2007 :

my friend stef had such an amazing halloween party with all my close friends (from high school!) so many awesome costumes and great times.

2007 :

  1. Such a fun post idea! I'll have to try it too.
    How did you like working on the cruise ships? I've always been curious about it/see ads for photographers on them every once in a while. Might have to pick your brain about it someday.
    Thanks for this little walk down your memory lane!

  2. Ouuu cute idea for a post! I was soo little when I first started on facebook though - I feel so silly looking back xD

    I have a maassss amount of profile pics, I never want to delete the ones with special comments or special memories attached!!!

    Btw, you have an amazing smile! And you and Pete are the cuuuutest!
