Last night I started digging through some of my boxes looking for jewelry box that contained an earring that a friend of mine gave me a bajillion years ago. Instead of finding the jewelry box, I found a ton of old pictures and some birthday cards. Two of the birthday cards were from my mom for my 19th birthday and I found a picture of me opening the card. Those three items meant more to me then anything else I could have found. It was so nice to see them all in the same relative area… that’s a pretty huge deal when you consider the number of times I’ve moved in the past 6 years.
Some other stuff that was in the bunch was a handmade birthday card from Rachel (also for my 19th birthday), the picture of me laying in a boat full of seaweed, and a few of my other favorite pictures from when I was little (like 5 & younger). I wanted to bring them into work to scan today but I got distracted this morning & forgot them at home. I also came across about 60 of my CDs from early-mid 90’s.
Oh! And you wanna know what else I found? A folder with all my cheers from my senior year and about a 2” thick stack of marching band music. I was so happy. Those are going in a box with all my other senior year stuff.
