My five favorite photos!

I'm finally joining up with Momfessionals Andrea today for my first Show and Tell Tuesday of 2017.  Today's prompt, five favorite photos is right up my alley.  I love photos.  I think I get that from my mom who has stacks and stacks of photo albums going back almost 40 years.  These days, she has stacks and stacks of Shutterfly books.  Me...I too, have a bunch of photo albums, boxes of photos, and document my life daily on Insta!  I've even posted about my five favorite photos of ME here!  Today, I'm just sharing some of my all time faves...of me and the people I love! It probably illustrates this solitary life!  (Explanations are above each pic)

This is the most recent picture in the bunch, but this is definitely one of my faves.  Quite simply, it's my family!  The freakin' wild, crazy, ridiculous crew that we are.  And, of course, me being the loner, with no family of my own, I'm smack-dab between my mom and dad!!  Ugh.....lolololol

November 2016

This is the best picture ever of the "original 6"!  We were celebrating Happy Heart Day for my dad, and doing our usual photo shoot thing, when Billy, my oldest nephew, hit us all with the super soaker!  We were all blindsided...and the fact that my brother-in-law-Sean got this action shot is classic!

August 2015

This one is a favorite of my bestie and I! Over 30 years of friendship has yielded thousands of photos.  But this past summer when we went to see Garth Brooks and sat in the rain for hours, we were getting punchy!  And this fun photo was the result. (this is our concert photo pose!)  Garth was a bucket list item for both of us!  So glad to have this girl to check things off the life list with!

July 2016

There are so many wonderful pictures of each of my sisters and I, but this one is just had to share today!  This picture is one of my favorites simply because it's irreplaceable.  And one of the best days. This is me and my oldest sister Tara, on top of the World Trade Center, about 2 weeks before the towers fell in 2001.  Read more about our trip and this picture here!

August 2001

And last but not least... a favorite of all my nieces and nephews! How can I not include them...they have my heart.   Love them all and the wonderful humans they are becoming.  Nothing in the world makes me happier than being Aunt Katie (sometimes Aunt Beastie) to these littles...and the bonus kiddos in my life!!

Choosing 5 was just too hard ....

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek into my little world!  Have a great Tuesday!!


  1. Great pictures! I love looking back at pictures and enjoying the memories they invoke!

  2. Love seeing these pictures- especially that group shot- made me smile.

  3. That shot of everyone getting wet and your mom just standing there smiling, love it!

  4. What a sweet sweet post! My favorite of yours has to be the super soaker picture! So funny!

  5. All of these are so special. Your relationship with family is so dear. That super-soaker pic is adorable but I also love those of you and Mel. And the one from the twin towers.
    One that was missing that is a fav of mine is a pic of you in a straw hat at the beach. Love the leg shot above but that hat pic is so artistic and beautiful. It deserves recognition and some love here, too!!

  6. Love the pics you chose! THe supersoaker one is so funny!

  7. Ok, August 2015 is completely hilarious!!!

  8. So fun! I am dying over the super soaker picture. Crazy that you were in NYC just two weeks before. I have a similar picture of a high school bestie and I dining at the top in 1999.


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
