For years Nick had a desk out in our loft area and I had a desk in our second bedroom, or what I call my walk-in closet. Since we are staying in Des Moines and starting a new chapter we decided to make a real office in our loft area and needed something that can transport to our next house. On a whim we headed up to Ikea in Minnesota and picked up Expedit desks and shelf plus one green chair. I LOVE the finished product. The desks are big enough for my monitor and laptop plus all my pens, paper and random crap.
This past year I took on scanning all of my grandma Kay’s photos. Not only did I scan them, I took them out of the old, acid-paper albums, arranged them by family and placed them in sweet Container Store bins. This was quite a task. I would guess it took about 25 hours and that even seems low. Some of the photos wouldn’t even come out of the albums so I had to wiggle floss back and forth to get the photo lose. Trust me I’m not complaining. I enjoyed doing this, it was really fun for me. I also got to see rare glimpes into my family’s past and (I’m going to get vague here, apologize) I found a photo that literally changed me. I’m so fortunate that my grandma gave me these pictures, these moments, these treasures.
Then, at Christmas Paul and Wanda gave Nick some old photos of him! Hot diggity dog! It made my day.
I scanned thousands of pictures. I uploaded some of my favs to Ol School Photos and below is just a sprinkle of what I have.
