Jecca & Loxi

As I find myself getting more interested in photography, I thought it would be fun to share an old snapshot:

This one is of my cousin and I.  We were only 2 months apart, but I was much smaller.  The dog in the photo was named Flossie and belonged to my grandmother.

At that age my cousin and I did everything together.  My parents always tell stories about the trouble we would get into.  And despite what the photo suggests, I have often been accused of being the ringleader.  (Naturally, I have no recollection of being anything but an angel)

As kids, we couldn’t pronounce each other’s name.  Jessica became Jecca and Alexis became Loxi.  I still call her Jecca to this day!  (Fortunately, my nickname evolved to Lexi and/or Lex)


Here’s hoping your Thursday is full of smiles and happy memories…


  1. Aww… this is adorable! I have a photo of my cousin and I when were around that age with pacifiers in our mouths. It’s always fun to look back at photos of people you are still that close to.
