We adore this photo! As a child, this girl "borrowed" her mom's fancy French cosmetics and started to play. She also tied this scarf around her head a la Brigitte Bardot, topping her unevenly self-cut bangs. Mom couldn't get too mad - it made for too good of a photo.
Do you remember the first time you played grown-up? What did you do? What happened when you were found out?
October is Family History Month here in the US! In honor of the month, we'll attempt to post family stories, short narratives, and photos daily. We know how difficult it can be to get your family history started! We encourage our readers to simply start - even if your stories are out of chronological order, even if you only have 15 minutes a day, and even if the story is at first imperfect, try to capture one moment or story at a time. If you'd like more tailored guidance or assistance developing your snippets into full stories, we would love to help you with our Writing Coaching Service, and Narrative Transcription which can be done in-person, or remotely over email, phone, Skype/FaceTime sessions.
