Awkward Child Photos

Today I'm 29. Tomorrow I'll be 30, flirty, and thriving.

In honor of this milestone birthday, I'm sharing some of my most awkward child photos with you.

Between the glasses, retainers, bad haircuts, red hair, and lack of any fashion sense whatsoever, I have a huge stash of these photos.

Unfortunately, I didn't think I was cool at the time. I'm pretty sure no one else did either. But every year, I've felt more comfortable in my own skin. I can look back and laugh at the silly fashion statements I made, and it's ok. 

So even though I don't look forward to getting another year older, I'm happy to know that I'll keep working towards figuring myself out even more. I'm grateful for all of the wonderful opportunities, friends, and family that are in my life. I'm hopeful for all of the good things to come. I know that I have a truly blessed life, and I can't wait to see what the big 3-0 holds. 

Safety first! My first time roller blading.

Our 4th grade play was The 3 Amigos. I wanted to have a big role, so my teacher made me the 4th amigo.
I was really just a girl with a mustache, who the villain fell in love with.

No, I didn't have a rat tail. That's my iguana, Iggy. She grew to be over 5 feet tall.
And that's my comically large alarm clock.

This is my first bunny, Moose. Please also note my jorts, and my iguana shirt. 

The family that plays softball together, stays together.
The girl who wears high waisted shorts, high top converse, and glasses, stays silly looking.
