A girl without freckles is like a night without stars.

I love freckles. They're like a little sprinkling of cinnamon dusted across the bridge of yer nose...

Dedicated to my sweet friend Jenny...the original Frecklewonder.

  1. Aw, I love them too! I get freckles in the summer but they're they fade a lot out of season. My grandmother was a redhead and had them everywhere.

  2. I like freckles too. I used to have a lot when I was younger and hated them. Now that I like them they're almost all gone haha

  7. I love how you described freckles
    as being like cinnamon dusted over
    the bridge of one's nose. I like that.
    My husband has freckles. He hoped
    with all his might that our little one
    wouldn't have them. She doesn't.
    Makes me a little sad, especially after
    seeing these fabulous photos!

  8. what a gorgeous collection of photos!

  9. i have freckles!!!! its so weird i think im like the only girl at my school with freckls as huge and dark as mine! Its also weird because im half hispanic, so i have black hair and carmal skin but huge freckles on my face. why do i have freackles! i know its genetic and my dad has them, well not anymore he lost all of his and hes well white. Girls are more likely to have them though because our skin is thinner! so why do we get freckles!!

  10. I love freckles, I wish I had them. :)

  11. I have had lots of freckles since I was a small child. They are all over my face, and all over my arms and shoulders. Not too many on my legs or trunk though. I was teased about them growing up. I even remember one girl in middle school telling me that I was ugly. It hurt more than these kids ever knew. Now that I am a 30 year old woman I thought I was past any of the sting of people making remarks about my freckles. I said that I would change my attitude about them and embrace them as a part of me. "I can't change my skin any more than anyone else can", I said to myself, "so, I will appreciate my freckles as something that makes me unique and quit worrying about something I cannot change". I was fine with this new attitude until a man said something to me tonight about how I needed to stay out of the sun because I had too many freckles. I felt a wave of that old childhood wound that made me feel helpless to fix something and like I would never measure up to the golden bronze standard of beauty that all the other girls attained so effortlessly. This renewal of a heartache I thought I had left in the past prompted me to turn to the internet to seek out anyone else who may have gone through something similar. I came across this blog and it made me smile because it brought me one POSITIVE memory I have from childhood about my freckles. I went to Germany to visit my grandparents (stationed there with military) when I was seven years old. I was feeling sad about my freckles on a particular day when one of my grandmother's German friend's said to me (in German) that "A girl without freckles is like a sky without stars". I never forgot that and seeing the similar quote on your blog brought me a smile. It must be an old saying. I like it ;-)
