Who remembers the Christmas Tour of Blogs from 2008? What a delightful way to share the things that made Christmas so special for each of us. This weekend I’m decorating the house and as I unpack the decorations, it’s not surprising that each item has a story behind it. It dawned on me that if I don’t document those stories now, who will know why they are so special after I’m gone. I have enough storyless family treasures as it is.
It’s going to take longer to decorate this year. As I pull out special decorations and ornaments, I’m using my Day One app on my phone to photograph them and add text describing where they came from and why they are so special. I’ll make sure that when they get passed on, their stories will go with them.
