one summer

It was 2005.
I remember it was a hot day,
but not as hot as it gets in Texas.

Back then, hair was a lot shorter,
and a much lighter color. 

I was in front of the skate park.
I've never been able to balance on a skateboard,
so no, I didn't go inside.

You can just pretend that my eyes were open.

 The skate park was a fenced inside of a larger park.
 We walked further down through the park,
to the water.  

My guy let me take his photo.

Where there was more nature.

There were cobwebs on the trees.

This seems like another world.
This seems like another girl.
It was.
I was.
And yet there's parts of me,
 that are very much still the same.


  1. Fun flashback! Love the purple flowers! In many ways I believe I'm the same person I was when I was twelve years old. The core doesn't usually change...

  2. very nice post idea! I like your hair that way as well. and yellow + blue never get old

  3. aww you got some lovely photos! i love your witty comments after each one hehe!


  4. looks like a truly beautiful day :) the sunshine, all those beautiful flowers and nature overall is always so relaxing and makes you happy. I wish we had weather like that here in Estonia but oh now, not even close.. we have rain and more rain, also thunderstorms, crazy wind and freezing temperatures (I'm wearing a warm sweater right now). totally annoying! :D

  5. love when you share old pictures!! you have such a gorgeous face Teddi!

    have a great week,

  6. They built a skatepark (via the city government) a few years ago in my town. Unless I could use my bike there, I would never be able to use any of that stuff. Me on a skateboard is a 100% blooper reel.

  7. Trying to post a comment, hope it now accepts!
    I loved the place! How beautiful, would love to go there!
    And the song! I love it! People call me weird sometimes, because I like old movies and old songs, even though I wasn't born at the time they were released. But art and beauty are timeless, right? Don't know why they call me strange sometimes!

  8. what a pretty day and beautiful pictures! what a trooper that your guy allowed his pics on your blog!
