Today was a good day. I cleaned off my bookshelf and found some of the books I had been looking for. I found an old Martha Stewart magazine that had how to make a quilt out of ticking. And a book that had a really great recipe for a low calorie cheesecake.
Then, of course I found the photo albums covered in dust and quite neglected. So I began to browse through them. Such a mistake , my heart always jumps to my throat when I see my children when they were very young. I saw me and my sister when we were little and I had my favorite little purse. I hurrried up and dusted those off before any more memories could come spilling out.
Does anyone else ever have a hard time going through old photos?

Hello! Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging!! You'll never meet a sweeter, more encouraging group of women. I enjoy blogging and sharing my ideas ~ and reading about others and what their doing in their lives...I know what you mean about photos and memories, they can take you instantly back to that time, whether it be a wonderful time in your life or possibly remind you of bad times. Fragrance does that to me too! It's so nice to meet you ~ I'll visit again soon...xxoo, Dawn

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
