My Life in T-Shirts !

It is time to pack away the heavy warm sweaters and pull out the shorts and t-shirts. I am optimistic that all of our snow will be gone by May 1st! This task of organizing my clothes took me much longer than it should have because each t-shirt reminds me of an event or time in my life. I decided to take a few pictures and write a post about these reflections.

My oldest t-shirt is 33 years old.
The Beach Boys and Chicago performed in a concert together in 1975. I never went to the concert - even though I begged my parents to let me go. I ordered the t-shirt from a magazine and wore it with pride. Maybe I'll wear it to a Chicago concert this summer!

I convinced a bar owner to let me buy this shirt - the bouncers in his bar wore it. He finally agreed when I told him I was a teacher and I thought it would be perfect to wear as a behavior management tool. His mom had been a teacher so he sold me the shirt.

This shirt reminds me of the joy I received from reading to my children. 'Frog and Toad' books taught us wonderful lessons about friendship.

I used to wear this to our local school district meeting when it was time to vote on our school budget.

And the award for the BEST concert I have ever been to goes to... MICHAEL BUBLE ! I think I will sign up to be the president of his fan club. Who cares if I am old enough to be his mother? Incredible band, powerful stage presence, a voice which is powerful yet smooth, appreciative of his fans, a fun sense of humor and easy on the eyes - all in one package!

The newest addition to the collection. I love the saying and it pretty much sums up how I feel about life. Check out their site at
This is a good reminder that each day IS a gift. Enjoy!
