I'm feeling nostalgic today.
After DH's visit to the doctor yesterday, we were discussing the last time he had been. Knowing it was about this time last year, I decided to look in my scrapbook. However, I quickly got sidetracked browsing through my book. I found pictures of my Father who passed away last year, pictures of my precious little doggy that I had to put down a couple of weeks ago, and other stories I simply wouldn't have remembered the details of just one short year later.
We don't have children to pass these books down to, but after calling DH over several times to look at this or that, he told me how glad he was that I record our memories.
I started working full-time in the fall, and I simply don't have the time I would like, and sometimes, it feels like a chore to do it, but now....I remember why!
What about you? Why do you scrapbook? Is it for the memories or the artistic outlet? I adore all of the artistry out there of those amazing artists among us, and know I'll never equal their skills!
