Tis the year of turning 30. I feel like I’m supposed to be freaked out or feel old… but I feel pretty ok about the whole thing…. most of the time. Minus the extra moolah I now need to shell out for highlights to cover the grays, I’m ready to gracefully bid my 20’s adieu and welcome a new digit into my age.
One of my best friends since college – Melissa – was the first to kick off the digit du jour (or d’anee, to be exact) with her aggressive November birthday. Meliss planned a great brunch at Brooklyn fave, Flatbush Farm. Darcy (other college bestie) and I wanted to do something special to celebrate Meliss’ 30 years, so with the help of Melissa’s mom, friends, and our personal archives we were able to collect a slew of old photos throughout Melissa’s childhood, college, and adult life. We assembled all these photos on a clothesline that we hung with clothespins…. and ta da…… a room filled with memories and amazing photos – especially the awkward teenage pics. Here are some photos from Melissa’s bday brunch as well as other clothesline ideas from my personal collection.

We hung a piece of yarn using tape and clothespins – worked like a charm!
