Repeater of Memory Monday's w/ a dash of new info

I've decided that i want to start a little activity for Mondays for fellow bloggers (and even non bloggers who want to play, you can leave a comment on my blog with your story - Carol, i now you've got some good stories out there.....). i'm calling it "Memory Monday's. Sort of like a little community for us. What brought me to the idea was something that i think about every so often - who was the girl i use to be before i was married with children? I see alot of art work featuring little girls and i think to myself - is their an analogy between the little girl in us and our art? i believe there is! So, i started thinking about all the things i use to do as a young girl and i thought, how fun would it be to start blogging my memories with some sort of picture dragged out from the archives? i'd love to have bloggers leave their links on my blog and then head over to their blog to see their post on the particular topic. is this making sense?So, starting next Monday, Feb. 18th, we would start our first memory. this gives readers a week to find out about it and prepare. Every Monday, i will post the memory topic and post some probably hilarious picture that corresponds to the subject. In case you aren't following what i want to do, here's an example. say the subject is: "your first job". We would all post about our first job, where is was, about it, anything about it, etc. and try to find some picture to go along with it. following me? you'll git the gist once we get going.i'll post reminders during the week . When i make my post on Monday, at the end of the post, i will give out the subject (homework?) for next weeks memory. I would also gladly encourage you to email and your ideas for topics. you might have an old picture that you'd love to talk about. what ever was going on in the picture, could be the topic. i hope you will share.
So since, this is Monday, i will post our topic for next week, Mon. Feb. 18th which will be our first day to begin. Also, don't worry if you don't have a picture to go along with the topic! i encourage you to play along anyway. pleease email me with any questions if you aren't sure what the heck i am trying to do here! and don't forget to make a header for the topic, explain why you are writing it (mention Memory Monday's) and link back to my blog so that we can all follow each other around).

topic for Memory Monday, Feb. 18th:

your hair as a child. was it curly and unruly? stick straight? always in braids? did you have a horrible haircut (remember kitchen bangs?) any self haircut stories out there? (or did you just do that to your little sister?)

for those of you who are super busy, if you find a minute, find your picture (if you have one) and create your post and then save it. you'll be able to go right to it next Monday and viola you are done!
