One thing my mom has done in every house we lived in was to have a wall dedicated to our family pictures. This was often the first decoration put up in our house and it was always something I remember looking at with awe and wonder.
I am so grateful that my mom gave our family this space to tell stories about who I am, where I came from and what it means to be a part of a family.
Marriages, achievements and daily life is captured here.
There weren't always group shots. My mom made sure to highlight each of us in our own special way... note the rainbow/profile miracle picture of me and a glamour shot!

I love how my roots are captured here...great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins...
I remember staring at these pictures convinced I was adopted...
This wall, dedicated to telling stories, is precious to me and I cherish it deeply.
