There’s no way for me to exactly determine when this photo of mom and my little sister was taken. Based on dates on greeting cards, I know we lived at Hollypoint Apartments from at least Valentine’s Day 1983 until Christmas of 1985, so I’m just arbitrarily saying this was from the fall of our first year there; Jen looks pretty young. It’s very odd to see mom without glasses, but I remember there was a hot minute in the early 80s when she wore contacts. And she looks so skinny! I bet she loved this photo.
