tiny dancer

Last week I spent an evening poring over old photographs from when my family lived in Europe, and I discovered one of my new favorite things about getting older: your childhood photos get so. much. cooler.

Remember the video that was circulating a few weeks ago of the poor aspiring ballerina who just could not contort her legs into first position?

I kind of feel her pain.

(I'm on the far right...the one always doing something completely different than everyone else.)


  1. omg, so adorable D!! Did you live in Europe as well? First position is a b!tch.

  2. I did! We lived in Holland.

  3. PS - G probably handles first position super gracefully :)

  5. Ah yes, the days of unitard wedgies... I remember them not so fondly :) I'm digging the new blog look, by the way!

    (sorry for the removed post---the OCD part of me couldn't allow for the typo to stand)

  6. Aw, I loved that video! These pictures just bring back more memories of being the kid who couldn't follow directions :-)
