It all began with a pile of forgotten photos…
I stumbled across these particular pictures in a manila folder under my bed, which was where I had stashed them, because at the time, they reminded me of a sad season in life. But there is a time for mourning and a time for moving on, and it didn’t feel symbolic enough to just throw the pictures out. I wanted to memorialize the strength and courage that I learned in that chapter, so this is how I reworked my cast-aside pictures into something new and meaningful.
I was going through some old boxes and came across this paper from Larken’s kindergarten class.
It speaks so much better to her darling personality than a photograph could, so up on the wall it went!
And this is a letter that Alayna Kate (then, age 8) typed for me during her summer stay with her grandmother and aunt. Priceless!
I have also been known to frame love notes between the husband and I. Makes for a nice Valentines or anniversary gift!
