The 12 Days of Blogmas event will take place from December 9 – December 24. There will be a prompt for each weekday of the challenge. The prompts are based around the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and can be found below with a small description. Each day, you’ll create a post for your blog based on the prompt of the day. Then, you’ll come back to The Coastie Couple or The Petite Mrs to link up your post. After linking up, you’ll be able to check out other blogs who are participating. We do expect you to share the love with fellow bloggers that are participating in the event.
You can find graphics and other goodies for all of the prompts in the Facebook group, but I’m also going to list them here for those of us that don’t want to add another group to our list.
I’ll tell you a little story about my family and the fact that we have limited pictures saved from my childhood time and even before. My mother was one person who saved everything. Every picture, momento, tag, card, award and medal, any single thing from our childhood that could/would hold sentimental value in our lives. She stored them for years in big, blue plastic storage tubs, all stacked neat and safe from any harm. But one of the times my mom was moving all her belongings about after a divorce and a hard period in her life, she packed it up into a U-Haul and had it at my grandparents for a limited time. Now I wasn’t present so I don’t know who’s fault it was or who was responsible but that U-Haul was repossessed. And you guessed it- all our things went with it… pictures, mementos, her clothes, furniture and antiques etc, her whole livelihood was just, gone.
Needless to say we have limited physical objects left from all that nonsense. Despite that my memories in my head are rich and everlasting; so for that I am grateful.

I hope that this makes you feel very happy when you see me and my family and how I own my remaining memories. I love how each of these photos makes me feel. These were all spread over my whole growing up period from young infancy to young teen. I cherish all the times we were together since now I have lost so so many since then. I hope you enjoy them all.
