Love Notes and Treasure Chests
I'll admit it. I'm a sentimental person. There are certain things I just can't part with. Every card my husband and children have given me, whether it was for a holiday or just because, home made or store bought, I've kept. They're in a big trunk at the end of my bed along with both my wedding dresses (hubby and I renewed our vows for our twelfth anniversary)and all hubby's love letters from Saudi Arabia when he was in Desert Storm.
A co-worker of mine thought I was weird for doing this. He said he and his wife display their holiday cards on the mantle for a few days, then throw them away. My trunk is overflowing now, and some of the cards and pictures have graduated to the trunks in my living room, and little wooden boxes around the house. I even keep the boxes that held jewelry I've been given.
Am I the only one that does this? What about you?
