This hearth has perplexed me as long as we 've lived here. Don't remember ever having it decorated in a way that I've been really pleased with. This weekend I tried something new...
I can't stop staring at it!!!
One glance hurls me back in time to re-visit sweet history, fun memories & happy times. I always want to linger ... but it's never long before the present beckons for my undivided attention.
Left - Playmaker on the far right - back in her rookie days. She's behind & looking up to her big brother (he used to help coach her team) in much the same way she still does .... in such a way that I'm not so sure he even realizes. Not much has changed there :) .... & so I'm thankful he still provides her with a good example to follow.
Right - This merri-go-round would be considered much too dangerous by today's obsessive standards...but our kiddos survived! - & judging by the happy faces they're sporting here, apparently they enjoyed the ride :)
that was then, this is now
By the look of things...much has changed - but much still remains the same - & I hope it never changes :)
Strike - dressed her best - in her pink "ballerina dress".
What else would one wear to pick cherries on the farm?! :)
Spokes - the year he enjoyed the honor of being Captain of his hockey team.
Fun at the Oregon Coast. We had sooooo MUCH fun there!
Once again, I've lingered here too long...
I must get back to the future -
so I don't miss something that I wouldn't want to forget! :)
