I am once again following the Folk Magazine Journaling Agenda and am excited to share my post this week.
So this post is about reflecting on a family moment which I think is perfect for Valentines Day as in our house valentines day is shared as a family. I don't expect my husband to treat me like a queen on the 14th of February each year, that should be done everyday!
So here is my picture.....
This picture was taken in 2010 on a family trip to Chicago. My little guy was 3 and even though this is not the most flattering picture of me this is a precious memory of our little family.
This was a dream trip for me, I love big Cities, I love the hum and buzz, I love the movement and energy. We lived in St Louis so Chicago really was a short drive for us to get to the hustle and bustle. This trip was a precious 4 days spent with each other exploring a new city. We found so many little spots in Chicago that we fell in love with.
We spent our days walking miles and miles ( we like to do that). This photo was taken my an older couple that you could tell loved their city. They wanted to take a photo of us because they remembered the days of their children growing up and not having family photos. They were very cute, cycling around the city. I love meeting people that live in the city you are visiting, I love hearing stories and seeing peoples love for their home.
They in a way made that trip for me, this photo made that trip for me , the kindness of two strangers flow through the memories and remind me that kindness goes a long way!
