I wonder, is he a senior already? MAN, the time flies :)

WHERE did the time go? It feels like we just dropped him off at college yesterday?
I gave my oldest kid's room a repaint. It's a nice shade of grey, manly, but neutral enough that I really love it. It will stay that color for a long time.


I have a ways to go before dropping anyone off at college, but I dread the winnowing part that will eventually be my job. My kid doesn't get rid of stuff easily :-)

Well the text melted my heart too. It's so hard to get rid of so many sweet little tangible memories; thank goodness we will always have them in our hearts.


As I age, my already-sentimental self is tipping more and more easily into nostalgia. I realize that's not news, really, but I like considering how nostalgia can be deep and important versus the way some folks seem to treat it--like a crutch or a way of romanticizing.

I'm all about Deep and Important.

He will be glad you saved things for him. My sister and I joke about our "precious childhood memorabilia" but my husband has practically nothing from when he was a kid. I think it's sort of sad.
