Mystery fades. Sentiment grows. Love deepens, while the vastness we once felt becomes smaller.

Endless treasures that filled a whole room, are tucked inside a jewelry box that stands in the corner. A boost needed to perch on an impossibly high stool, is now given by me. The handmade doll house that once held a real living family, has become broken and tattered, while the ones within have not aged. And though the jungle of ivy has vined for two decades, it now seems only a fraction of what it once was.

But love…love is more evident and bigger than ever, and now the mystery belongs to my three.

  1. Thank you for the note 🙂 I don’t take pictures much anymore, but I do enjoy seeing good photography, and this post I especially enjoyed. Truly, it’s like I’m stepping into my own grandparents’ home! You’ve captured the essence very well. God bless!

    .THANK YOU sweet Anna for this delightful and beautiful collection of our home and some of our life with your precious family. Very special memories for ages to come! Beautiful and expressive writings. I also loved you in the mirror. I did a double take, wondering how I had that picture of you in that collection of photos, until it dawned on me you were in front of the mirror. Great idea. You were very thoughtful and generous to preserve these for us. You are an awesome photographer. LOVE you and yours!
