(originally posted away for the weekend)
Long, long ago – (well, back when I was in high school)
In a faraway land – (that would be Kansas – it’s kind of far from Boston)
I made myself a gingham notebook (I’m not sure why I made myself a notebook rather than running to the local dime store – but then, that’s not really the point of the story).
Anyway – this gingham notebook was my special journal – a chronicle of my teenage days – thoughts, hopes, dramas… I found it stashed away in a trunk in my basement, having made it through several moves. Without opening the journal, memories flooded my mind; I remembered all that it contained – what it meant to me.
As I began transitioning away from “away for the weekend“, I knew this journal was the inspiration for my new blog, “Gingham Notebook” (without the teenage angst and drama) – focusing on the everyday – photos, stories, rambles.
And as I start the new year with my new blog, I hope you will join me. I wish you a very happy new year!
