Today I decided to play along with Life in Stitches and give you a ‘Way Back When-sday’ post. The idea is to post a picture from wayyyyyy back and tell you a little about the picture.
A few years ago, I had several pictures of my grandparents copied and I put together a small scrapbook. Unfortunately my good intentions fell short and I’ve never finished writing any ‘history’ in this scrapbook.
These pictures are of my grandmother, Ruth, all taken in or around 1942.
I love this time in history. I love the clothes, the furniture, the simple grace that embodied women, and the chivalry of men.
I enjoy looking at old pictures, especially with my kids. They get excited to see the scrapbooks of them as babies.
I always close an album with a stark truth burned in my heart – Life moves quickly, too quickly for regrets.
