{Time in a box ...}
I've spent the last 4 days packing ... Below are a few items I found while boxing up my house:
1.
Wendy and Tory Christensen (about 1994)
Seattle,WA -drawing on the pier... Ever had a Character sketch?! :)
We walked away laughing and thinking: "Do we really look like that?"
Check out the hair - classic.

2.

An art collection of us ... Before we had kids. See that middle photo? The one of two gals in green and yellow? That's me and my best friend April - we were part of the high school cross country team! I can't believe I used to run that far that fast :) ...

3.

Mariner Baseball collectables ... We lived in Bellingham, WA in 1995 and made a few trips to the Kingdom to see them "Stay Alive in '95" - it was so magical!
4.
Hmmm - anyone else out there ever keep a Wheeties box? I'll give this one to Kaleb (my little league slugger!)

Cheers to moments from the past and the stuff we just can't throw out!! :)
PS - We're almost done with the big move - I feel like I need to take a vacation!
A cruise to Alaska sounds nice ...

What treasures! The only fun part about moving is finding fun things from the past.

Alyson - YOU are so right ... finding the 'treasures' has been the best part! We have not moved in over 10 years and well you can imagine the stuff :)

Love the collage of pictures! I recognize several of those people ;)

I haven't taken a peek at your blog for a while. I didn't realize you guys were moving? Is it nosy for me to ask where you're heading?

Tiffani - Hi! Good to hear from you :) I hope all is well with you and your family! I need to come visit your blog... As for the move (in a nut shell): sold our house, in-laws left on a mission and invited us to 'house sit' for them! So we are (same town)!! We hope to build in the near future.

Your blogs are incredibly detailed. How can you find the time while giving appropriate amounts of attention to a husband and 3 children, while being such an accomplished writer and publisher, as well as spending as much time and effort as you obviously do on yourself. You must share your secret with the rest of us 'average' women.
