Pictures are amazing ways to keep memories!

I’m starting to decorate my house with pictures of our family. One of my dear friends made the startling realization that I take tons of pictures and don’t have many up of my family! NOT GOOD! So, in my normal over-achiever way, I got right on that project! I have had tons of fun looking at pictures, going through old albums, pulling out old frames and more then anything…dreaming about how I want to display our life in our home! It’s so much fun! Of course it’s going to take me forever to get it perfect but, I’m loving the process so, I don’t mind.

My highlight, so far, has been listening to Adriah’s comments and memories as she spends time gazing at each image. She remembers so much! People’s names, where we were, what we were doing and more! I’m talking details…more then I remember! She’s an amazing little girl…I loved looking through photo albums with her today. Maybe someday she’ll read over past blog entries and know how much it meant to me. 🙂 Love having a little girl for that reason. I could just see Leyton saying, “What mom, you have a blog?”

AND FOR THAT REASON everyone needs to print their pictures. They do nothing for you in your computer. PRINT! PRINT! PRINT! And love decorating your home with your family memories. It will make you smile and it will cause others to feel like they know you and your family more…just by looking at your memories. Doesn’t this make you want to come over and help me? Nope. You can’t. I’ll take a video when I’m done and show you my finished product.

I love my new home…I’ll love it more when it’s filled with our memories. Until then, it’s just a house.

I made collages of my family a long time ago. My family live in Australia and I live in the Netherlands, so it was always important to me to see my family, even if it was on the wall of my guest room. I have now made collages of my husbands family, the maternal and paternal sides and they are now on the wall, beside my family in the guest room of our new apartment. This way we have sometimes four generations of one family all together in one frame. Before we moved I also laminated fotos of our daughter in different stages of her life and per theme and these sheets are on a shelf and every day I rotate the fotos. It is wonderful to see the fotos and all the wonderful memories.
