So, when she passed away 11 years ago I was devastated, but that is for another posting about love and life.

Then I wanted something so profoundly silly but again, it was a fixture in her home.

There's a picture that I have yet to hang in my home, I think I know where I want it to go but not sure. It's one of those things I just have to do. I'll have to show you when I actually do it. I wanted to add it into the blog but it is still wrapped in bubble wrap in my room. Maybe tomorrow I will take it out and hang it up.
Do you have something that floods you with memories, that you love?
