Black & White Wednesday

It's Black & White Wednesday!

the long road



I'm still thinking warm thoughts and hoping the weather gets itself figured out (though snow is forecast for later this week!! :() Is it any wonder that I keep posting old photos of warmer days?!



These photos are from a vacation to the Rivera Maya in June 2005. That was a fun trip -- I think we definitely need to put that at the top of the list for a repeat visit! Yes, I usually do wear a hat when I'm out in the sun a lot as I must admit, I color my hair and the sun bleaches and dries it out too much. Plus, once I put a hat on, I leave the hat on!!
Maddy seemed so little back then -- a little sweetheart! Visit Lisa for more great black and white photos!

I love that you are sharing your warm weather photos.....I can't blame you for wanting to be in that state of mind, I know I am contstantly thinking of those warm and sunny days!!

Such adorable photos of you and Maddy! How old was she here? She looks so little!

The Rivera Maya is beautiful. The last couple times we have gone to Mexico, that is where we have stayed!

Have a great week!

Love it! I think the hat looks great—I adore hats, but my skull is an odd shape, so most hats look absolutely ridiculous on me.

Warmer weather is coming, slowly but surely!

Gail said...

I love the hat...definitely a keeper. Great photos! My husband and I are planning an anniversary trip for sometime over the summer, and are still debating about where to go. This looks like a great option!

Very "cool" pictures of you and Maddy!

(I too wear a hat in the sun--otherwise the highlights go orange!)

Kim said...

Oh, keep the summertime pictures coming. I wish the weather we had today and are supposed to get tomorrow would stay. I am ready to skip spring and head right to summer.

Sounds like a great vacation spot in June 2005 I was caring for a new baby and tomorrow I am regisering her for Kindergarten! time flies.
