We sorted through old photos today.
And found this gem.
It’s Justin and his sister Jill circa 1970 something. ADORABLE!
I can’t stop smiling. It’s just SO cute.
There’s something about old family photos that are so precious, special, adorable, unforgettable, magical. And there’s something that photos say much louder than words . . . the time, the space, the clothes, the colors, the feel, that precious moment of a time gone by.
I read something in a magazine today (I think it was Good Housekeeping) that said happy families have more family photos displayed around their house.
The reasoning is that we tend to dwell on happier moments if we have reminders of those moments around us. And I agree.
Somehow photos turn into THE memory for me. As time goes by I remember the photo more than the actual moment.
And that’s okay. Because photos become carved into memory, burnt into my soul, forever engraved upon the personal book of history we call family.
Speaking of family….
What do I have to do to get the recipe to this secret family recipe?
Jaynane made this Davis Family Potato Salad today and I think it might be the BEST POTATO SALAD I have ever tasted!
I’m pleading for the recipe.
