…I read the famous blog, “Dooce”. Today, Courtney sent me a link to this blog post of hers. Hilarious!
Also, this one!
I just found the funniest article on one of my organizational blogs, entitled, “Small Notebook”. It’s a great blog for pack-rat people like me. I love the picture at the end– it made both Jesse and I crack up.
Do you feel sentimental about your stuff?
I love this scene in the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
Toula’s about to get married, and the grandmother brings in one box of her most precious things to share with her granddaughter.
Inside the box are old photos, heirloom jewelry, and a wedding garland.
These keepsakes have been carefully chosen and treasured, and each item carries significantly personal meaning.
But what if instead of one simple box, the scene in the movie had taken place here:
In front of her storage unit, with all of her life’s possessions carefully boxed and stored so that one day her granddaughter could inherit all of it and always remember her.
Not quite the same feeling, is it?
When it comes to keeping sentimental things:
the fewer things you keep, the more special they are.
This is the blog of a girl I knew back at Biola. Mostly, she posts directions for gluten-free recipes because she has celiac disease. However, most of the food looks soooo good that I doubt if I’d miss the gluten. Whatever that means.
Anyways, she just had a baby about a month 1/2 ago. And her blog has gotten even more entertaining. You simply have to read it. She also takes excellent pictures, so between all the yummy pictures of food and adorable pictures of her newborn baby, what more could you want?
Here’s a few pictures to entice you over there…
Yay! Here’s a link to the pictures that Courtney took of all of us while they were out here visiting.
