when I'm old I want to remember...

 :: A little girl who falls asleep on the floor cuddled next to her dog during an afternoon snowstorm.

:: The scent of balsam oil on my newly baptized baby's sweet head.

:: A house full of family and good food. Young cousins playing dolls and blocks and making pretend cupcakes for each other for hours on end.

:: Bathtime. (and naptime).

:: Hugs and kisses and reading and dancing.

:: A clean table, a lit candle, and a dinner all together.

:: Laughter and a half-dressed child running down the hall.

:: Her love of the animals and the freedom of being outdoors.

:: His fearlessly joyful nature.

:: Snuggles.

:: The feeling of belonging - wholeness - oneness - contentment.

I want to forget all the rough spots, and remember these things instead.


  1. That last picture is so sweet! It sounds like you will have lots of wonderful times to remember! :)

  2. Beautiful.....Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

  3. Keep those dear memories, tucked away, Jaime!

  4. Precious memories indeed, hold them dear always :) x

  5. Oh that made me tear up.... *sniff* So beautiful, Jaime. XO

  6. This makes me so happy - what a beautiful little life. Yes, remember all of those beautiful things.

  7. What a wonderful collection of words and photos. We should all make a point to focus on remembering the sweet highlights instead of the bumps in between them. Good advice for me. And gosh, your kids are cute.

  8. And I love that all white outfit in the first shot! Oh, the clean, classic preciousness!

  9. What a wonderful post Jaime. These times pass so quickly!

  10. You're so good creating beautiful memories for your loved ones. I think if a child believes he is raised with love, care and appreciation, he will live and love his life better and confidence. J'aime ça. ;-)
