Welcome to a new feature here at KT's Refinishing School called Remember When Wednesdays! What is Remember When Wednesdays you ask?
Well, it is where I will share a vintage photo of either myself, J or members of our family as well as a little story or memory behind the photo. With Thanksgiving tomorrow, I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce this feature and take a trip down memory lane. Now, without further ado...
While this isn't exactly a Thanksgiving picture, it is at the very least a fall picture, as indicated by the color of the tree and the abundance of jackets, mittens and scarves. I am in the light blue jacket and that's my Grandma and Papa behind me, who we will be spending Thanksgiving with this year! My mom is holding my youngest brother Alec and I am standing next to my brother Dan and sister Madi. My dad was there too, probably taking the picture for us.
This was one of the many Notre Dame games I attended as a child. My grandpa went there for his bachelor's as well as his law degree. My great-uncles and their father, my great-grandfather also attended Notre Dame. My sister (in red, waving at the camera) now carries on the tradition as a sophomore at Notre Dame.
I don't know who we were playing that day or if we won this game or not, but I do know that this is one of many pictures we have in front of Touchdown Jesus.
Can we talk about my powder blue coat and white jeans? What was I thinking? It was certainly after Labor Day! Ah, childhood.
So, what do you think of the new feature? Do you have any vintage photographs to share?
