Passionately Pink Blog Party | DAY 2

Welcome to my 2nd and LAST DAY as hostess of the Divine Digital Passionately Pink BLOG PARTY! Don't forget to continue the party and visit the next stop at Royanna's Blog!!!


PASSION
I have another passion that I have totally let go for many years. But for some reason I have been thinking about it lately and hopefully I will find out how I can get involved in it again. I LOVE Family History. I love adding names/dates to my family tree and most of all I LOVE hearing the STORIES! I love getting to know my ancestors through journals and stories. I feel like it gives me a better idea of who I am! After my grandparents died, we found my grandma's journal. These were the grandparents that lived right next door to me growing up. I saw them every day of my life and felt very close to them. My grandma died when I was a junior in high school and I really miss her. But when I got a hold of her journal - I felt a connection that I haven't in a long time. Hearing the stories and the feelings and reading about the people in my grandma's life made a huge impact on me. I was able to type up the words in the journal and give it to all my family for Christmas that year and it has truly made a difference in my life. I know how important it is to write in journals (I need to get back doing that too) - I truly feel that our family history is who we are and I definitely think it is important!

PINK
Yesterday I talked about my daughter and her love of PINK. I was trying to figure out something pink that I could write about today and my daughter sparked a memory. She is dragging her pink blanket around the house and I got thinking about it. Her pink blanket is actually MY blanket - my great-grandma made it for me when I was a baby. I really didn't use it much and it was in great condition - until Beth got a hold of it - and now it is falling apart. It would really help if I learned to sew, but I don't really want to. LOL Anyways, as I thought about that blanket I thought of another blanket that I haven't thought of in a really long time. There was another blanket that I had when I was a baby and growing up. It was pink with blue squares that had animals in it. I LOVED it - I used it for many things - as a blanket, as a tent, and even to cover up my little "hut" that was in my room growing up (my bed was on top of a counter-like thing growing up and underneath this counter was a hole that had book shelves and lots of room for "stuff" - I called it my hut). To this day, I'm not exactly sure what happened to that blanket and somehow I miss it. Looking back, I think it was really the only "pink" thing I had and liked. (If you recall yesterday's post - I really hated pink). Isn't it funny what sparks your memory and the little things that you recall about growing up! I really wish I still had that blanket...

Thank You very much! So talented and generous! Love the kit (having all boys and not much of a pink person - except so boys don't take my stuff although that's also backfired.... hubby carried around my pink cell phone for 2 months because he was too lazy to reactivate his lol!) I am so loving this kit!
