I really wasn't planning to post today, but I ran across this photo on my cousin's MySpace, and it's begging to be shared. That's my cousin Sinthia on the left and me on the right, the summer before my 13th birthday, 1983. We sure loved those bikinis. Oh, how I wished I could fill the thing out. But that wouldn't happen for another 6-7 years.

Those were the days. Don't I look like I'm having the best time of my life? Photos rarely tell the whole truth, but I think this one does.

  1. Look at you! All posing and modeling! What a great picture! *hugs*

  2. The bookends poses are great. I remember "dating" a girl who wore a similar one about ... mm ... five or so years before this was taken. She didn't fill it out either.

  3. We're not supposed to fill them out at 12, but 12-year-olds don't think so.


  4. Love the photo. Glad to hear it is as happy as it looks.

  5. We must be the same age. I love the photo, and like Marta, I'm glad it was truly happy times.

  6. it is indeed a fabulous picture!! :))

    sometimes i wonder if we need photographs to hold on to our best memories or are our minds enough.
