Memories Revisited

I have a habit of saving things. From buttons, to threads to old letters, I save it all. I sometimes border on obsessive because of this habit.

The obsession has blunted somewhat now. Thanks to parenthood, it has been largely restricted to a few favorites baby things, and paintings and doodles made by Saee. What Sayalee makes for me to save, remains to be seen. Waiting eagerly for that day.

Sometimes I even forget what I have saved. All too suddenly one day, these things pop out from nowhere and take me back down the memory lane.

Like today. I was decluttering the closets when I found these.

 

My wedding invitation

I also found a greeting card from my friends Anita, Anushree and Sahana.

Sahana, Anita and Anu, not only is the OTG you guys gifted me, the most used wedding gift, I saved this card too! Thanks once again for being such lovely friends 🙂

Then came the journey into motherhood, and my best friend sent me this card from Goa. She wasn’t married at that time. Now she herself has been blessed with a bonny baby boy . Shweta thanks for always being there.

And then Sayalee got a hold of my wedding invitation!

Please ignore what you see behind her 😦
