First Moon Landing - and I was there!

 Well not, there-on-the-moon-there. I was sitting in my living room with my parents and my boyfriend. Honestly, I didn't think it would be all that big of a thrill. I only wanted to go, and make out with my boyfriend. 

I'm not too cool to admit,  I cried. Watching it, I knew this was historic and special.  I believe I enjoyed watching my Mom and Dad the most. They were amazed, never believing they would ever see anything like this in their life time. Totally blows me away, that it's been 43 years.  I sure don't feel that old!

  I feel blessed to have been able to live during these times.  Just the excitement of it all. I'd have to think long and hard, if anything since then, has excited me as much.

You can watch it as if you were there -  July 20, 1969 -

  1. I was only 7 and too young to be making out with my boyfriend, but I totally would have.
    Sounds like good times!
    My father in law worked at NASA during those days. Very proud moments.

    1. Hi Tina. I bet your FIL can relate many good stories about working at NASA during such historic times.

      Thanks for following.

  2. I was 7 too at that time but I can imagine the awesomeness of that moment!

    Hi! I'm a new follower of your lovely blog. So glad we connected!

  3. hi there! so happy to be following you. to have been a real part of witnessing that major moment must have been darn cool! such a piece of history.

  4. I was born Dec 1968 so was there in body but spirit and mind weren't! How exciting though. I know what you mean about being there; I have taken myself to London for the Royal wedding of Kate and Will's and the Jubilee. You have to be at these landmark events in history! xx

    1. Wow, now that must have been awesome to see Kate and Will's wedding. I hope you took lots of pictures!

  5. I *wish* I would've been there - what a moment in time. My mom was in junior high, and she still remembers it vividly. I don't really know that we've young 'ens have anything in our lifetime that can compare :)
