30 years in photos!

Recently, for my 30th birthday, my Dad gave me a photo album. It's a simple red album with an orange tie to hold it together (think Moleskine style, except as a photo album). He filled every slot with photos from the first 30 years of my life! From birth, to birthdays, holidays, family, childhood friends, adult friends, pets, vacations... EVERYTHING! They're not even copies. Original photos from my life. It's amazing!

My favorite pic is in the very back. It's a bad photo from when my parent's were dating. I've been on a mission to find photos of my parent's together in the 70's (or pre-1974), but haven't been able to get my hands on any... until now. They are both decked out in super hippy attire and my Mom has platinum blonde hair. My Dad's forehead is cut off, it's faded, turning yellow and the corners are a little bent, but it's really special! I want to buy a fireproof/waterproof safe just to keep this amazing gift safe...
