We are on Week 12 of our 52 weeks of Sharing Memories - A Genealogy Journey Journal. I hope everyone will join me this week to talk about more memories! Imagine how excited your grandchildren or great grandchildren would be to read your stories in the future.
I got so busy with Valentine's Day and Family Day weekend here in Ontario Canada, that I never got to our usual Sunday blog with the next week's topic! I wanted to write about Valentine's Day Memories. Hopefully we all have some romantic or funny ones to share.
My father and mother never made a big deal out of Valentine's Day. I don't remember it as anything special, so my first memory is of waiting for a romantic gift when I was a very young bride! I think I've lost my memories of that first marriage, because I don't recall anything special for any of the 9 Valentine's Days we spent together. Looks like my Valentine Memories for my journal will be slim.
One year I hired a singing Valentine for my second husband who taught High School. For some reason I thought it would be fun to interupt his classes with a young woman dressed in stockings and tuxedo (think the Turtles girl...) who would serenade him in front of a room of teenagers! I don't think he appreciated it.
I hope you have some wonderful memories to share with us!
