Sometimes, pictures don't have to be the predictable and posed ones, I try everyday to take pictures of connections, our family connections that have been changing so much with this new bundle of joy in our home.
And if feels great to document small bits and connections I see happening.

In the process of restoring and scanning pictures for me and my sister, this is one of the few that has all my family when we were younger that we could salvage.
For the ones that don't know my mother went in a process of destroying pictures that had my father after their separation. It's amazing to think my mother was younger than me today in this picture with already two kids, makes me think how things changed and will change even more as my sister now is 27 and don't even have a BF right now.
This picture was on my birthday I don't remember what age I was commemorating here but maybe 8 because my sister was less than a year or year old. That's something that will make me grateful for Scrapbooking, that my son won't struggle to remember the stories, like I wish I could remember some details. I wanted to have more memories, I have vague memories, I just know my mother made many birthday parties for me, till this day I think was a waste, because I believe we should do parties when children can understand parties. Later when I could understand and wanted parties, we could not afford, this was one of my last ones.
Anyway, the point is: document today what you want to remember tomorrow.
