i collect photographs of strangers

my cousin wendy sent me a little package filled with old photographs of people! i love buying them at antique shops. it's fun to look at them & wonder what these peoples lives where like. this is what the note she sent with them said:
beloved cousin! i found these in a thrift store up here in sonora. i thought you might like them :D
love, wendy
p.s. my fave is the girl on the ladder
thanks wendy!! my favorite is the couple in front of their car:]

melissa: oh.... hahaha!! yes! i am, are you?

allison: good! oh yes, i am so glad i found it! it has been a lifesaver while studying for finals.

xavia: can't wait to see yours!
