When Shannan's post popped up in my Reader, I was instantly intrigued, because very similarly to her story, our home computer crashed shortly after Evan was born and I remember weeping because none of the pictures that we had on our hard drive could be salvaged. So I completely empathized with Shannan and am rejoicing with her on finding old pics that she lost. This blog hop, is right up my alley, because if you ask anyone that knows me, they will all agree that I am slightly obsessed with capturing every aspect of my family's life on film! Shannan was tagged by Michelle over at Paper Glue Etc . This blog hop focuses on pictures.
The rules for this hop: Go to the place where you upload all your photos. If you don’t upload them online, just go to wherever you store your pics on your computer. Open the oldest album, and post the first photo. Tell the story behind it. Grab the MckLinky and post it on your blog. Just for fun, tag 3 people you want to see old photos of.
Because we lost every photo on our hard drive, we had to begin again with what was on our camera at that current time, which thank goodness we had kept a few birth pictures. We lost many pics of those first few weeks of parenthood and most of the pics of us before we were parents and of my pregnancy. But I think the ironic thing is now, that when you open up my iPhoto, the following pics are first to show up. Which when I view my life, I really view that my life truly didn't begin until this day. This day I became a mom!! This day my life as I knew it changed and I became a new person. IT is almost like, that I don't really need to remember that previous life before my kids, because it truly doesn't compare. These pics show the beginning of my amazing life, one that I cherish!!
The first picture is of me leaving the house on Evan's Birthday. The quality isn't the greatest of the "first" picture of Evan, but I am so blessed, I didn't lose it!
