Stuff With Stories

Posted by lori . 7 Comments



This year on Thursdays, I’m writing posts about things I wish I’d taken care of, “if I died today.”


I realized that I have alot of things that my daughter has no idea what they are, where they came from, or why they’re important to me.

So this week, I’m going around the house and photographing things that I care about, and that I want my daughter to know the stories behind.  That’s it…one small step at a time.

                     I believe that all wisdom consists in caring immensely for a few right things, and not                            caring a straw about the rest.

  • i’ll be looking forward to these posts.

    i actually started a 2nd blog last year, trying to write about some old photos and momentos that i got from my parents when they passed away. and also some memories. but i could only share them with my 3 siblings and they didn’t really want to play, so i gave up after about 5 posts.

    i think it’s such an interesting thing to do though and i’m sure your daughter will one day appreciate your stories and memories.

  • Certainly a lot of food for thought. Thank you!

    This is such a great idea. I am constantly bombarding my daughter with stories behind lots of keepsakes so she’ll know the meaning behind most of the treasures that will be passed along to her and why they were so important.

    This is a wonderful idea. I wish either set of parents would have done something like this; unfortunately neither of our families are sentimental.

    I’m looking forward to knowing the stories behind your important things! I love those nesting dolls. They’re always works of art!

    What a great idea! I shoould do that as many of the things that will get passed along belonged to my grandmother and my mother and my sons have no idea what they are.
