  4. Love them all. And to keep the celebration rolling, does anyone have a September wedding anniversary? (Ours is today.) If so, include that in your comment for an opportunity to win a copy of Mara's Move. I'll pick a winner tonight.

  8. Well, for goodness sake! I know all you ladies and yet I only had ONE correct. Pamela Tracy has only grown taller, otherwise she looks the same. The rest of us--wow.

  9. Linda, you're not alone. I didn't get any of them right (except mine, and that doesn't count). Big cheers for those of you who guessed any of them correctly.

  12. Linda,
    I love you. Thanks for saying taller and not adding WIDER.

    Jackie, I've never been a good guesser either.

    BTW, the captions were Dream's idea.

    Peace, Julie

  14. Congrats on your anniversary, Jean...how many years? My anniversary is in February, although my husband proposed on September 2nd.

    Yea! We can finally match names to faces and find out who had their pictures in the barn! =) Congrats to Michelle on winning the contest.

    I really enjoyed getting to check out the photos and get to know a little bit about all the new ladies here. I'm looking forward to adding to my TBR pile too!

  15. Congrats, Michelle!

    Lacy, hmmmm. A picture of you dressed as a cowgirl, and two decades later you're writing stories about them. Who would have guessed?

  20. Jenny and Valri, you both mentioned anniversaries, so I have a copy of Mara's Move for each of you. Click on Pam's email at the end of the winners' list to send her your mailing address for me. And it's our 38th. Obviously, I was a child bride.

  21. I got Pam and that's it! Wow, this was tough, but fun seeing all these pics!

  22. You are all adorable, both young and old. Well, not old. More mature! Yes, I had to show off my shoes, even at a very early age! But mercy, I'm glad I progressed to pumps!

  28. Lisa,
    As long as we've been friends (20 years now? Is it? Nah, more 15) you should recognize me.
