Great Questions – Part 4

Posted by lori . 8 Comments



This year, I’ve start the process of “dealing” with my photos and memorabilia.  For me, that means no longer having boxes (and boxes and boxes) filled with so-called precious memories that languish away in the basement.  But, even filled with this resolve, photos and memorabilia can be incredibly hard to part with.

My friend, Amy, was telling me about some questions she asked her husband and herself about what’s really important.  I thought the questions were very interesting and could be helpful in narrowing down my treasures.  So, each week, I’m posing a different question to get myself thinking.  You may have noticed that I haven’t answered any of these questions.  Later this year, after I figure out my answers, I’ll repeat the questions along with my answers.

This week’s question is:

Think of 5 favorite events or periods in your life; what 5 special things represent those times?

  • I am in love with that doll and her clothes 🙂 They look like the little cutouts I used to play with when I was a child except I don’t see the bits where you fold over the doll.

    As usual, I can’t think of an answer at this moment.

    However, I wanted to tell you that, inspired by this series, I’ve started to share some of the memorabilia from my parents on my Facebook. I shoot and use them as cover photos 🙂

  • Your friend has come up with some very good questions that really help you prioritise things. Well worth thinking about.

    Oh that’s too difficult… I’m going for a snooze to ponder on it!

    I’ll have to think about my answers to that question for a while, too! It’s kind of timely for me, because my dad has Parkinson’s, and this last year, he’s been gifting me with all of this stuff that he’s held on to for years. I feel bad throwing it out, because I know it’s important to him, but I don’t have anywhere to keep it, either!

    That is a good question to ponder for sure!

  • Patty says:

    1) Getting married – 26 years ago TODAY
    2) Designing and building our home
    3) Adopting our first greyhound, Jack
    4) Living our dream of traveling in our RV

    I think the main thing I have to represent each of these events are the photos. I am really not big on saving other things, I guess.

  • P.S. I just had another look at the picture and realised the doll’s clothes are so nicely designed, I didn’t notice the tabs! The ones I had were more like little white rectangles. In fact, now I remember I used to draw and make them too. Those were the days 🙂

  • Wow this one’s tough!
    1. December 9th, 2010. The day I got Nola. Obvious what I have to remember that one by 🙂
    2. October 8th, 2010. The day Nola was born. Dittio
    3. October 31 and March 18. My 3 siblings birthdays . Them obviously
    4. Early part of 2011, when I realized my passion was photography and blogging.
    5. I’m stumped on this one!
