Okay, I learned to copy and paste to Jan Goals Part Two!
Well, to go with my goal of my Life's Story written down. I had a nice serendipity moment while working on my bedroom dresser top. Somehow in one of the boxes or bins that was on the dresser held some negatives. Later that night after working on the dresser, and putting things on my bed to sort, I came across an envelope that was labeled of a Lodge I stayed with my mother and niece while I was in college.
What is exciting about this is that I took a recent trip to this beach town and ended up at the same lodge. And I thought about it and realized I had been there before and was looking for the familiar restaurants around it and a special staircase that leads down to the ocean. I couldn't quite find it b/c the landscaping had changed due to the elements. Plus the lodge had changed a bit as well. Since when we went there it was just opening.
Anyway, this brought back many memories and I know we have pictures of this trip somewhere in the boxes or photo albums of my parents that I have possession of. But where to find them would take some time. So I don't know how these negatives got where they were or if my mind forgot that I found them.
Either way after almost two years, I have these negatives that I'm going to print up and then compare them to my latest vacation pics. So that is my reward among other things of clearing off a space that I dreaded to do. Yippee!
