My Southern Heart...Memories

We each have them living deep within the recesses of our hearts and minds ~ memories that have been made one event at the time. I have 62 years worth. Well, okay, maybe I can't remember THAT far back. Just like most of you, some of the memories I think I have are maybe just stories that I've heard so often that I just think I can remember them.

Memories are precious things. They allow people, places and events that have happened in our lives to go on living in our hearts and minds. You already know that I'm a Southern girl. Now, you know that I'm maybe just a wee bit sentimental. Family is very important to me...just as, most likely, it is to you. Our families have helped to shape us into the individuals we are today...given us our sense of deep worth, our values as well as our brown eyes and freckles. I'll try not to bore you in the coming days and months or however long it takes me to sort out the stories of my well as share a lot of creations with you.

I confess I'm happiest when: I'm outdoors and the sun is shining (remember it rains 6 months of the year here!), everyone is well and happy, I can visit or at least see/talk with my children & grandchildren by phone or Skype, as well as the rest of my family and friends who are far away from me, and when I'm in the midst of creating SOMETHING!

I will look forward to sharing those memories and stories with you, as well as the creations... whether it's a sewing project, story, quilt, lame attempt at knitting, culinary creation or a very lifelike artist baby doll.

Please, take a moment to leave a comment and let me know you've tuned in...I'd love to hear from you!

Blessings to you,
