Ok – so technically this post isn’t related to decorating our house, but I did print the photos, buy the frames and suggest the layout for the gallery wall. Let’s just say someone recently had a milestone birthday and I wanted to do something special for my mom….I mean for the special person in my life. My mom, I mean, person, wanted to have pictures of her granddaughter and I was all too happy to oblige her.
Bottom line: I love living with pictures. Having sold our home this year, we de-cluttered our space of personal items, including family photos. I can honestly say that I missed having them around. There is something about the moment + memories captured in a photograph and proudly hung in a home that energizes my soul from the inside out. Giving that as a gift to someone else was a very fun thing to do especially when it involved my girlie…..I can totally say that now, after the drama of hanging said photos is over.
I know I am a total convert, but apart of me thinks that if I wasn’t a scrapbooker/Project Lifer, this gift would have seemed like daunting task. My photos are in no way shape or form perfectly organized on my computer, nor to I have the perfect life. I do remember specific moments, both good and challenging, better than I use to because I engage with my photos on a regular basis. I look back and honour the moments in time that have past while also reflecting on what they will mean for the future. Taking pictures is just one half of the equation, but that’s the part that I love.
Turned out well / Cute, n’est pas?
