Throwback Thursday is a weekly feature here on Random Thoughts Of A Twenty Something. It is said that a picture can paint a thousand words and I wanted a way of looking back and reflecting on my past whether it be recent or from years gone by. There’s something quite intimate and revealing about sharing photographs from our lives and I’m always intrigued about the story behind the lens.
This image of myself and my daughter from around 3 years ago is one that always warms my heart. Not only do I have my very missed rainbow inspired hair but my daughter Nevaeh is showing her ever increasing love for other people.
At the time I was living alone with my two children and I can never admit to it being an easy time. On this day I was particularly unwell having had an allergic reaction leaving my eyes and lips dry and puffy, I had managed to drop a plate and we had run out of milk for our breakfast meaning an early morning dash to the supermarket with two young and hungry children in tow. Our children have a knack of knowing when we are not feeling too great and it was so lovely for my daughter to pull me aside that afternoon and ask for a photograph with me – promptly planting a kiss on my cheek as I clicked the trigger on my camera.
What do you think of my photograph? Don’t forget to check back next Thursday to see what image I have chosen to share with you!
