When I was younger all I ever wanted was a little sister. I already had three older brothers and I wanted a sister to have my back. Didn't quite happen like that... I got another brother. It's OK now, it all worked out well. My little bro (not so little anymore...) is cool beans. I learned to stand up for myself, perhaps a little too loud and aggressive as I sought my own place in the band of brothers. But best of all, is that when my parents found this vintage crochet dress at a church sale, I was at the front of the line to receive it. In fact, I was the whole line. I know I just bragged about my parent's thrifting skills in the last post, but I am just giving credit where credit is due. We don't really know too much about this dress but we assume it's at least 50 years old and it's in great condition. Sometimes, it's great to be the only girl.
Took these pictures at a freight train yard. In half the pictures I'm flapping my arms like a bird with a broken wing because it was so hard to walk among the rail ties and stones without tripping or (horror of horrors...) scratching the wooden heels. I was a little worried that if a train came I wouldn't be able to stumble out fast enough. However, Matt assured me that freight trains are much slower than passenger trains. That made me feel a lot better...
