flashback on a friday

Dan and me
last century

I'm pretty sure this picture was taken when we were dating.
Or maybe recently engaged?

I don't know.

I'm a bit shocked that we would have hugged each other so closely before marriage though.

Things I love about this picture:

Dan's sweater
the wallpaper
the seashell nightlight
the little doily hat at the top of the calendar
the doll on the wall (behind Dan's shoulder) that was made out of a mop
the ceramic squirrel running down the wall
that my grandma had attached the wallpaper to the outlet cover so that it exactly lined up with the pattern on the wall surrounding it
(the precision was amazing)

Awww, so cute!

You look so in love! Must have been around 1998-1999. That's when I made those incredible awesome mop dolls.

I wonder if I will look back on stuff I make this year like I look back on those mop dolls. Maybe I will never make anything ever again. Because those dolls were so happening back then. Seriously!

I summed in on the calendar in Photoshop. Pretty blurry, but maybe Dec 1998 or 1999?

If it's 1998 or 1999 then we were married so the close hugging is ok. Thanks for investigating, Arlene.

The squirrel is cool. The sweater ... not so much.

I summed? Meant I zoomed. Must have heat stroke....

Anyway, maybe Dan just wasn't a slave to fashion like he is now.
