Gratitude-when I think of things of which I am most grateful, nothing surpasses my marriage; the beginning of our story. Above are photos of mementos we've collected and stored in the trunk displayed in the first image. 1991: Our wedding guestbook. Left to right: Crab fossil from our first (and last) child-free vacation; symbolic as Joe and I are both Cancers. 1992: a lock of Jordan's hair from his first haircut over the bathroom sink. 1999: a love letter from my favorite guy on our 8th anniversary. Yes, we still write to each other; e-mail, text messages, cards and more. 2000: The cake topper I created for Yael's first birthday cake.
There are so many more cards, letters and other pieces of our history in the chest. Memories of times that were not always easy, but always worth it, and for this I am forever grateful. And you? Who what are you grateful for?
