Reflective thoughts

It seems as we get older, time speeds up. The years that seemed so far in the distant future are now upon us. I know in my brain that time is a constant but my heart has a different idea.

I get very nostalgic at years end. It has extra special significance for me. Mr. G and I reconnected and made plans for our future on New Years Eve 24 years ago. And our daughter, Mini-me, was born New Years Eve eve. reflective thoughts

As I was creating my mind began to wander. Thinking about how life has changed over the past year.

It feels as if my baby girl has been 14 for about a minute. How can she be about to take her permit test.

What happened to the cute little dresses she wore while playing rough and tumble with her brother and the neighbor boys.

See what I mean…nostalgic. Not that I’d want to start over by any stretch of the imagination but I do wish that for a moment I could step back into that time and bottle it up.

  1. What beautiful pages you created to remember those happy nostalgic memories – I love them! The way you applied the washi tape is amazing and I love the colour palette you used with the greens and pop of pink – stunning 😁. That origami dress is perfect too! Have a wonderful weekend and sending Season’s Greetings! J 😊

  2. You really DID get nostalgic. I can remember when mini me was FOUR and J was SEVEN. Can it be that long ago that we’ve known each other in blogland? Guess I got a bit nostalgic, too.

    This is a precious spread, dear friend. I really, really like it, and again, it is SO YOU.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. Have a super day and be sure to overeat (grin).
