Follow Friday: Hello, Fellow Youths

17 Oct

Today’s post features photos from my 30th birthday. I bought a new dress, had a ridiculously large dinner with just about every friend I had, and then came home to games and dining room that we had transformed into a photo booth. I should post photos of that because it was really cheap and easy and one of the best parts of the night. Anthony posed for lots of photos with his D&D buddies and then us D&D wives posed for our own photos and called ourselves the D&D widows. I borrowed a tripod, used some bright makeup lamps that belonged to my mother, and used a bolt of pink satin I bought at Valerie’s yard sale for a backdrop. So easy! I look at these photos and so much has changed. Back then Isobel was the same age Elias is now, and Angela was still pregnant with Kingston. It was a great day.
