A JOURNEY WITH HEATHER: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

1977 - Rain & Heather

Happy birthday to my baby girl, Heather!  Above, she is ten months old, and we were enjoying a get-away along the Central Coast.  That shot was taken in Solvang.

 

Below, she is age three….Her hair looks like that because I had braided it, and then brushed it out, trying for a flower child style…probably not her best look.

Fast-forward through the years:  her oldest brother, Craig, a photographer, captured her against this wall in a grungy look.  She was fifteen, and really hates that hairstyle now.

Several years later, she went to Pismo Beach to get married, and her two-year-old, Noah, showed off his blond curls for the occasion….

There have been many occasions with photos of Heather, but here’s the last one I took, earlier this week, when we celebrated her birthday early.  Now she is on a cruise, with fiance and friends, celebrating 40 years!

    • Thanks, Mary, she has had an interesting journey…and now a lovely cruise, although it’s not her first.

      I, on the other hand, don’t like flying…or big boats that stay in the water for days…LOL.

    • Yes, I expected something totally different when I unbraided it, Melinda… I was never good at hair…which is probably why she grew up to be a hair stylist. Defending herself against bad hair days….LOL

    • All four of my children are in their forties…for a little bit. In November, my oldest will turn 50. How did that happen? LOL.

      Thanks for sharing, Judy, and gathering your kids together would make a great photo. Thanks for stopping by.
