For some reason I don’t seem to have my junior or senior high school photo on my computer, so you’ll just have to guess what I looked like in those years.  😛 When I was at home for my high school reunion a couple weeks ago I went through old photo albums and snapped pics of a whole bunch of photos. So this Throwback Thursday I’m sharing a photo of me as an infant, being held by my Opa (grandfather), Walter:


At the time of my birth, Opa was already 77 years old (he was born in 1901 in Germany), and went on to live for nearly another 30  years—he died at the age of 106. !!! When I found this pic in an album I had to share it because it’s just so adorable; Opa looks thrilled to be holding his first grandchild. My Opa may be gone but the name lives on, because my nieces now call my dad Opa.  <3
