Family Scrapbooks

A fun mix of truth and fiction: the Templeton family scrapbook includes vintage photographs from my own family). I love looking at old photos. They take me right back to Mississippi, and I'm a girl again, surrounded by my kinfolk.

 Names are cloaked, of course, to respect my family's privacy. Here's the "most beautiful aunt" with my second cousin, "Sunshine."
