There's a lot of storage in our entry way closet, I have all the Christmas stuff stashed in there and several plastic boxes filled with memories of days gone by.
I've inherited the memories from both sides of the family, held on to anything remotely interesting or sentimental. I have tons of cabinet card photos taken of people who I can only dimly link to my family, as well as photos of friends and loved one's whose stories are lost to time.
Lost memories someone else might throw away. These Valentines were tucked in a card board jewelry box with several pre-world war 2 post card pictures.
I'm going through some of the papers, letters,and photos in the boxes from the closet. I need a better way to store them, a better way to enjoy them.
Boxes and boxes of paper memories.
Now kids give Hannah Montana and Pokemon Valentines which seem naked and useless unless there is a piece of candy taped to them. The candy part is more important than who the card is from.
Will kids someday be sending digital valentines?
In a paper-less future, what kind of memories will we love most? Can you imagine a paper-less future?
