Happy Birthday Kim!

Kimberly Ann was born on January 27, 1961.

A happy baby.



Kim was the typical oldest child...obedient, reliable, responsible, high achiever, and bossy!! :-)

First Grade


Kim with her new guitar - Christmas 1974

1975 - Doing knee bends with Wendy.  Dig the groovy sleeping bag.  Is Kim wearing an Elton John T-shirt?

Sewing (1976)

1976 - Lookin' good in gaucho pants and boots!  (I think this was one of Kim's hand-made outfits.)

Could this possibly be the first photo of Kim knitting (1979)?!!!

Daddy's girl - 18th birthday

Carmel High School Class of 1979

A new mom in March 1994


"Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been." - Mark Twain

"The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune." - English Proverb

"The secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age." - Lucille Ball
And in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
Love, Bonnie Jo

Yes, that is an Elton John t-shirt. And figures I was doing knee bends when my legs were skinny. I had no idea what it meant to have fat legs. Yet.
Yes, I did make the gaucho pants. Loved those gaucho pants. LOVED THEM. I think I made the top, too. And I believe that is a PUCA shell necklace! Also, YOu have captured one of may favorite outfits- the red cowl neck sweater, plaid shirt and denim vest. Somehow, I am feeling like my "style" hasn't really evolved much since then. I am just not that cute anymore. I have lots more smile wrinkles, though! Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane, Bonnie Jo!

I was just coming over to wish Kim a Happy Birthday and see that Bonnie Jo has done an incredible job. What a fun post for someone like me who "knows" Kim without having ever met her.

Don't know that I'd recognize her in Panera's now though. Oh wait...she'd be the one knitting, right?!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KIM! You're a delightful blogger friend!
