This weekend my parents and I visited little Tilly (and my sister and her hubby) to watch her eat and sleep. Now three weeks old, my niece is quite the charmer and none of us can get enough of her.
Here's my mom showing off her new granddaughter...
and my dad.
This got me to thinking about how we are creating our own memories as a family. We don't necessarily think about each moment as it ticks by, but one day we will all look back and remember when Tilly was just a tot...
Most of us who love antiques are nostalgic by nature. Though some argue this isn't a virtue - that it's better to look to the future - I believe there is much merit in cherishing our history.
I think what often appeals to my customers about the jewelry I design is that it reminds them of a favourite memory...
a time when their own children were young,
an Italian honeymoon,
a Danish grandmother's garden,
or a special holiday.
What memories are you creating?
