The night I devoted to picking out and printing photos for our gallery wall, I was up until 4am. It was tiring and I was indecisive, but I am happy with the final result:
I love walking into our hallway and seeing photos of my family. I’m transported back to the moment each was taken, some wonderful memories.
My favorite thing to do is walk Annie down the hallway before bedtime. We stop at each photo and she tells me who each person is.
Sometimes, Annie will lean in and give kisses to everyone in the pictures. It’s adorable, and so sweet.
She ALWAYS wants to kiss the pictures of Maddie. She recently learned the word “sister,” so she’ll say, “kiss sister Maddie.” Or, in Annie speak, “kiss tister naddie,” but you get the idea.
I never expected it, but kissing pictures with Annie has become one of my favorite rituals. Now I’m extra glad I stayed up until 4am picking out photos.
