Sentimental Journeys

July 24th, 2009

Those who know me, know that I’m very sentimental. While I’m not one to hold on to everything, I do find myself keeping tiny reminders of days gone by, stashed away and found at various moments in time. In those moments, I always pause and find myself flooded with memories of those precious moments, all from those tiny mometos.

This morning was one of those times. I was switching everything from one wallet to my new wallet, and I came across a plethoria of reminders of wonderful moments with wonderful people.

What did I find, you may wonder- Below, I’ll share a few of those things. They’d be nothing to anyone else, but to me they are priceless, and in case you are wondering, no I didn’t throw them away, I tucked them away securely in my new wallet, where they will remain until I come across them again sometime.

  • Paris Metro tickets from last year’s trip to Paris with my parents.
  • Prague Metro tickets, also from last years trip with my parents.
  • A receipt from Chef Scott’s, where Samantha and I ate Sushi not long before Marcel and I came back home.
  • A receipt from Surin, where Marcel and I went with Julie and Brock last year when we were home.
  • A little paper from Crown money exchange place in Bulgaria, because if you use that paper you get a better exchange rate.
  • Several ‘fortunes’ from various cookies I’ve opened throughout the years.   (The fortunes, which are filled with ‘wiz’dom, can be found below.

Found on the Fortune Cookies:

“Things turn out best for th epeople who make the best of the way things turn out.”

“Nothing happens unless first a dream.”

“It is not the years in your life, but the life in your years that count.”

“Look for the dream that keeps coming back.  It is your destiny.”

“You have an unusual magnetic personality.  Just be aware of your polarity.”

I’m curious-  Do YOU keep little momentos from places you’ve been and things you’ve seen tucked away somewhere?  If so, what and where?

    yes, I’m a momento collector, too… I have trouble throwing anything away. Remember the ticket I once posted for the show “Princess for a Day” from 1958? LOL

    I miss you over at KCL.. it is getting to feel more and more like family there.

    I have a wood box that is home to ticket stubs, fortunes, pieces of wrapping paper, ribbon, shells and semi-precious stones (re: rocks), my wedding ring and other small memorable pieces. I also have a wall hanging in my bedroom that it is home to special cards and photos including the one that you sent me when I first moved into my apartment a year ago.
