2010, in my heart.

I have this filing cabinet in my heart. It’s always been there, keeping special moments and memories and feelings tucked away safely. There’s no real organization in this cabinet. It’s a free-for-all of sorts, just the way I like it. I never know when I’m going to need to reach in and grab one. You...

    Your images are beautiful and your memories touched me. It made me think of my own and what I would like to remember. You know, all those special things, whether good or bad, that make me who I am.

Happy Christmas!

I’m happy. I’m not sure what happened this year, but it has been the most enjoyable Christmas I’ve ever experienced as an adult. The tree was up before December even arrived. The Christmas cards were mailed out the very next day. Presents purchased early. Wrapping done with enough time to make them look extra special....
