Kylee from 1988 called.

Me. 1988. Eight or nine years old. On a stationary bike at my Grandparent's.

She told me a few things:

1. Phones will get smaller but they will never work as well as the one pictured above. (It's all in the antenna.)

2. A feathered, grown-out bowl cut with a center-of-the-head cowlick is timeless.

3. Pleated, acid-wash jeans will be in come 2015.

4. Pleated, acid-wash jeans are appropriate work-out wear for those sitting on a stationary bike.

5. She also told me that turning 34 is AWESOME and I should button my top collar button to celebrate today.

Bring it on 34. Let's do this.

  2. you totally look like The Viv in this photograph. ; )

    if I had an active blog still, i'd write a lovely post. perhaps it is just the day that I need to get my blogger butt back in gear? regardless, I am so very pleased that 34 years ago you were born. that your path and my path crossed and they have merged as friends. you're a thoughtful and generous and smart and creative and talented and witty and all around lovely mother, family member, co-worker and friend. without you, the world would have one less amazing soul on the planet and with you, we are all just a little bit better!

    much love you today and through this whole new awesome year of life. love you lots. xoxoxoxoxoxox. Love, Miss

  5. Can I just say...does that look like Vivi or what?!?! Wow.

    You looked amazing back then, and you still look amazing now! Happy Birthday, Kylee! I'm glad I have the privilege of knowing you!

    (Side Note: I bought a pair of polka dot jeans last night and when I brought them home, my husband told me his sister had a pair when she was 8. And then I remembered, I WISHED I had a pair when I was 8. So, my wish came true...just a looooong time later. ;) With that, you're right....you could totally rock those acid wash jeans in a few years. And make them look amazing.)
