A Trip Down Memory Lane

I took a trip down memory lane last night when I pulled all my paper photos together to find a couple of my mom.  I found all kinds of memories, some when Andrea was just a baby... I usually only took special occasion pictures  because of the cost of film and developing.  I find I rarely get a picture in print anymore due to having a digital camera and my phone.  I have my pictures half sorted, I am going to finish up the sort this week and I am going to go through my digital pictures to see which ones I want to get prints of...

I used to have a wall of pictures for Andrea from the time she was a baby and as she grew through the years, I am going to do that for Valentina too.  I have lots of frames, I just never took the time to organize them.  I want to complete this little project while I am off work, I know once I am back to work, my time will be limited again.

I loved looking through all the old pictures of myself when I was a little girl, I remember how I felt in some of those photos... it depended if Ruth was around or not.  She could dampen any party mood where none of us could enjoy.  We would be sitting on pins and needles waiting to see if we looked or said something wrong.  No child should have to live that way, never knowing if what they said was right or wrong.

Once I have my income tax return I am buying myself a new computer, I have not had a new one since 2001 and that one lasted until 2011.  I then plan to scan a lot of my old favorites onto Facebook and here, as well I will have an organized box of pictures in order, so that Valentina can enjoy going through them.  I am sure she will have a great laugh at some of the hair cuts I have had over the years, not to mention some of the fashions...

I am going to make a more concerted effort to take more pictures of Valentina and I am going to have prints made of my favorites.  Digital pictures are awesome but nothing beats having a handful of pictures in your hand that you can look at one after another. 

I also am going to take an hour or so each day and go through my room.  When I did the massive clean up a while ago, I never made it in to my room.  Basically there is just the closet and some shelves I have to empty out and organize.  I have already started with a few things, everything should be in place before the end of the week.  I want to make my bedroom a peaceful place to come into at night so that I can have a restful sleep.

Do you have boxes of pictures in photo albums or loose ones?  If you can find a half hour or so, you should sift through them... go down memory lane. 

I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future


  1. I LOVE going through old photo albums. They really do bring back a flood of memories don't they?

  2. Thank you Keith... Some of those memories are awesome;-)

  3. looking at old photos brings up all the emotions. I pulled out some of my girls when they were babies and my heart melted with memories. Beautiful memories. I shouted YES when I read you'll buy yourself a new computer. You deserve good things....Wishing you a beautiful week...hope it shines in every way for you.

  4. Thank you Nikki...I love looking back on pictures from the past;-)

  5. I like looking at old photos too. So many good memories to be reminded of. My younger son will be graduating from high school this spring. I'll be going through photos to have on hand for his party so I'll be going down memory lane for that.

  6. Thank you Daisy... I think looking back at our children's pictures brings the biggest smiles ;-)
