Vintage Valerie: Lauren and More

As I mentioned in my last post, I had several photos of Lauren that I wanted to share, but they would have exceeded my self-imposed fifteen photo limit. I thought I’d fit in with “Throwback Thursday” and share some of them today…along with a few others I came across. 🙂   I was so excited… Continue reading Vintage Valerie: Lauren and More

Vintage Valerie: A Trip North

In 2004, we took a trip to northeastern Missouri to candidate at a church. We didn’t travel too often in those days, so this trip was a big deal. This seems like a lifetime ago! Here are Lauren and Mitch at the hotel. Lauren left that stuffed dog at a restaurant on this trip, and… Continue reading Vintage Valerie: A Trip North
