The way we were #theGallery

One of the things I love most about looking through my family photos is seeing the five smiling faces beaming back at me.

Wherever we are, whatever we're doing, I just shout "Smile!" and it's like vogue, they all strike a pose and we get some of the funniest, silliest photos. But that's what I like, seeing them as they are and their personalities, and how they genuinely enjoy being together.

Not all of the time of course (the Waltons we ain't) - we spend a fair amount of time refereeing the arguments & bickering too - but 9 times out of 10 they love the bones of each other, and it really makes me happy to see. It reminds me so much of the times I had with my three older sisters when we were kids, and I love to see the closeness of the five of mine, I really hope that they stay close as they grow up.

So for #theGallery this week, I want to share with you one of my favourite photos from my parents family album, and it's even a genuine polaroid picture, not an effect frame! This is me and my big sisters, the way we were.

I have linked this post with #theGallery at The Sticky Fingers Blog.
