It's all about this box...
...and what's in it.
A couple months ago, while on facebook, a certain "status update" completely jumped out at me. A girl I went to middle/high school with was forced to evacuate her home due to a field fire around her neighbourhood. Thankfully it was not long before their family was able to return home with no loss or damages to their home.
Her status was written after they had returned home safely. It read something along the lines of this, having to leave the house in a hurry with a husband, 2 children and 2 pets was not an easy task, let alone trying to gather all important/sentimental objects and memories. She also mentioned that she was going to prepare some kind of box/bag to store all important documents so it was an easy grab if an emergency escape ever occurred again.
This post got me thinking. It was brilliant, as you can never be too prepared for emergency situations.
"I'm going do the same thing"
On that note, I'm dedicating this post to JD - Thanks for sharing your thoughts about creating a memory box, I'll be thanking you (a million times over) if my family and I ever have to make a quick escape from our home.
So here it is, a few items from our family's "Important Documents" box. I keep in a place I (the Mr.- my memory is none existent) won't forget !
Along with lots of important documents such as birth certificates, special letters, important receipts - You know all those adult things, there are lots and lots of albums & pictures in our keep sake box.
My baby albums - look at those bangs. They're banging.
Some of the Mr.'s important family pictures. Check out his grandparents from Scotland !
Memories from our wedding day - Best man & Maid of Honor speeches (Oops, Matron, I hear her correcting me already xo. :)
My special wedding bouquet picture. C.A.P checking out his Grand Nanny's picture.
He would have LOVED her. She one of the most amazing and strongest ladies I have ever met.
Miss you Nan.
C.A.P's baby book
C.A.P - "Mama, a baby"
Me : "That baby is you !"
C.A.P : "Biggg baby"
Me: "Oh, you have no idea."
He was 9 pounds 13 ounces. I'll accept my trophy later.
Just kidding !
I love knowing our important family documents are all tucked in one spot for an easy grab.
It's a great idea, and I truly think everyone should put together "a box" !
That sums up Wednesday's post - see you Friday !
