Keepsake Blog Award

The beautiful Brittany over at Living in the Moment gave me this award a while back. By a while back, i mean back in JUNE! I totally missed her post about it. (If i remember right, i had just returned from my sisters wedding and was getting over jet lag and late nights) It was only when i browsing through her archives looking for posts to repost for her while she's away this week that I saw it! Better late than never, right?

Anyway, thank you Brittany for the Keepsake Blogger Award!

First off, just so we all know what we're playing for, the rules:

1. Post a funny or sweet keepsake that tells something about you.
2. Pass the award on to 10 other bloggers that you think are keepers.

Ok, well one thing i've taken with me where ever we've moved, and we've moved alot, are my picture frames. I couldn't bring them all with me over the pond but I brought a few this time but I did bring a few. They help a new place feel more like home to me. I like seeing my old pictures around our new place.

Here are the ones I brought with me...

I made this collage for my hubby one valentines day. Black and White pictures of just the two of us.

This was my favorite family photo pre-Ethan. Taken one beautiful Florida day in 2007.
I've had this one the longest. The picture is from 2003. Taken on my 19th birthday in England.

Both of these were taken at Brittany's wedding last October.
One of my very favorite pictures of the new brothers. Taken when Ethan was less than a day old. It sits on the dresser in Elijah's room.
This was Geoff and Elijah way back when.

This frame matched the one above and held a photo of Elijah and I until Ethan was born and I decided we'd better get Ethan in some frames around the house! =)
So there you are. My keepsakes.

What do you take with you when you move to make the new house feel like home?

I think all my bloggy friends are keepers! (Hence, the giveaway=) So feel free to snag the award and share your keepsakes with us. Just be sure to let me know so i can come read about it!

I love this post - whenever I go to someone's house and they leave me alone, I'm checking out the framed photos and the bookshelves. :) I love to see a home with photos everywhere - it's like the whole house becomes a scrapbook!
