One Word Photo Challenge: Aunt

Auntie and Me

For almost one year, I have participated in the One Word Photo Challenge hosted by Jennifer Nicole Wells. My first posts were interpretations of a color. When the colors ran out, types of weather became the new challenge, many for which I had a hard time finding photos.  This next challenge, read here, is “people, places and things” in an alphabetical list. This one should last for years!

Without further ado, I give you “Ant.” Or in my case, using a homonym, “Aunt.”

This is my only living Auntie. My uncle married her in the late 1960s, bringing her home from Korea (a Korean war orphan). I thought she was the most exotic person I had ever laid my eight year-old eyes on.

In this photo taken last August in Oregon, I had not seen her in over 30 years. As a result of divorce and re-locations, the last time I saw her was in 1979. She, along with her daughters and their families now live in Washington and Oregon.

I cried when I saw her. We had a great time with my cousins and it was fun to reminisce. I hope to see her again next year!

I am an Auntie to these little darlings!

To finish out the One Word Photo Challenge for weather, here is a gallery of my photos from April through November.

Join in the fun and challenge yourself with the interpretations for each of the photo events on WordPress and beyond!

  3. I am so happy that you got reconnected with your aunt. Divorce really does mess up extended families. Many of my aunts, who were like mothers when I was growing up, are gone now. I do have a special relationship with one dear aunt, and I cherish it. As for being an aunt- I have 34 nieces and nephews. My husband comes from a very large family! Being an aunt is fun, as I am sure you have experienced, especially since most of my nieces and nephews are much younger than my own kids so I can relive kid stuff.

    • Michele, that is so cool to hear about your large family and all those nieces and nephews. We have a small family on both sides, just a few cousins. Neither of my brothers have their own kids, so I am an adopted and step Auntie! Cherish that time, I bet Christmas is expensive 😉

    • Thanks, Jennifer. I desperately looked for ants of the 6-legged variety but couldn’t find any (when I needed them). I thought the gallery was fun! Thanks for hosting these challenges!
