Okay, if memory serves me right I was 13.  Just graduated grammar school, and I met him playing softball & he said I was pretty so I kissed him.  His name was Phil.

    Happy Aloha Friday!

    I’m a new follower on Follow Friday.


    That is SO COOL you have those amazing photos! What a beautiful wedding!!

    Heh, my first kiss with a boy was in Kindergarten – he (Curtis) and another boy were apparently fighting over me and he stole a kiss. 😉 My first ‘real’ kiss wasn’t until I was 19 with my first boyfriend. 🙂

    Aloha: Weather


    wow, really a treasure.
    love the bridesmaids gowns…


    I think I was in 2nd or 3rd grade and we were sitting on the library stairs and he gave me a quick kiss. I even remember that his name was Richard.


    I have no idea. Probably in junior high.

    Have a great weekend!


    8th grade on a boat ride at Kennywood Park his name was JR ( I think)


    I was in the first grade, I kissed him on the cheek and I pretty much was in love with him, his first name started with a B


    Those photos are absolute treasures! You’re lucky to have them.

    My first kiss was a nightmare. It was with a boy named Jeff. Worst into to kissing ever.


    LOL – 16, prom. Unless you count those goof off kisses. LOL! Love this.


    Wow. Those photos are amazing! I wish I had oldies like that of my family.

    And kissing…hmm…

    Not a good memory.

    Now the 2nd time, hmmm I seriously can’t remember the others… gosh.

    Anyway have a great weekend beautiful!


    Hmm, I’m not even sure. The first one that I remember kissing was my first year in college — he was a photographer but I don’t remember his name anymore. He was cute though 🙂


    ten years old


    this pictures are great, everyone looks so beautiful and classy


    These are beautiful photos! Wow! I especially love the formal group wedding photo…love their wedding clothes!

    Blessings & Aloha!


    Oh, Dolly, those photos are such treasures… and so beautiful!
    I wish I had something so precious of any of my family members. I have ONE photo of my in-laws from my MIL’s Senior Prom. I was in awe just looking at those pictures.

    As for my first kiss… like Stacy, it was in Kindergarten, his name was Frankie and I slapped him, just like my daddy had taught me to do. Then I got in trouble and had to sit in the corner. Bummer! My first “REAL” kiss was with my first love that I almost married and I was 14, named Randy, and I loved him until I was 17.


    very beautiful pictures!!! i love their dresssses!!! just lovely!

    thanks for dropping by my blog dolly!

    happy weekend!


    I love old photos so much I even rescue ones that are not my family, from thrift stores to give them a place of honor in our home.

    Dolly- hope you are feeling well. Get better soon! Happy Healing.


    I love to see older pictures! What great memories 🙂
