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)

#21 Something Pink

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.

I knew this journal would be the inspiration for my new blog, “Gingham Notebook” (without the teenage angst and drama) – a place to write and share – photos, stories, rambles.

I wish you a very happy new year – and hope you will join me!
