My Parents Were Awesome








I spent hours over at the tumblr called My Parents Were Awesome, where people post images they love of their parents.

The images above are a few that really caught my eye. Don't get me wrong it's not 100% brady bunch over there, there are some fairly "interesting'' images too. But mostly you can see people's memories and the love they have for their parents. Totally brill idea, loved it.

What a fantastic idea. I'm lucky enough to have wonderful parents who only live five minutes away from us. My kids were going through some old photos and spotted one of mum and dad at a club, dressed to the nines and laughing to the camera. It was so great to see the kids realise that nan and pop were once teenagers too. Great post as usual Jules, love it. K xx

What a great idea, I guess it's easy to forget that your parent were once young too!

Really great idea! One of my fave things to do is go through all the old photos of my parents.. it brings back memories of a simpler, more innocent time.

Beautiful Jules. You have put together a great collection.

I came across one recently of my Mother from 1956 and just love it.

That is so cool, thanks for sharing Jules! I have a photo in our bedroom of my mom in her wedding dress, it looks vintage and fabulous, and it reminds me of her!

Hey Jules, that is such an emotional posting. I did some postings on my parents with pictures. Since I have kids I understand my parents so much better!
