I suddenly realized that I will never be as cool as my parents.

While I was in Indiana visiting my grandma, I hit the jackpot in the photo album department. In addition to finding my 5th grade Glamour Shots (post coming soon-- I promise!), I found an album from when my mom and dad met in Thailand. My mom was 17 and my dad was 19. Here are a few of my favorites:

It needs to be said that I just love 70's fashion. I would wear my mom's white blouse and those wide legged pants in a heartbeat. She was (and still is) so fashionable!

My dad died while serving in the army when I was three, so Memorial Day is always a bittersweet day for me. I enjoyed a cookout with some City Life friends yesterday, and came home and thumbed through this photo album, marveling over how cool my parents looked 40 years ago.
