Burning the Past

I’ve known people that when a relationship ends burn or toss pictures away of their ex. Regardless of whether they had children or not. One of the decisions that I made when I ended my marriage was to not be spiteful and destroy all photos of my ex-husband. Not because I was hoping for a reconciliation, but because it was my life. He was a part of my life. Both good and bad.

We shared Munch and he was young when we separated. He was almost 5. I often thought about life and death and my mortality. I wondered if I died tomorrow would Munch remember me. So, I kept photos of his dad and I together. That was a life that we had and if either one of us died Munch would remember that his parents had loved, laughed and lived prior to him being born. That he was created in love.

The thing is that I know so many people who discarded those photos. They have no memories of their exes to show their children. So, it got me to wonder do you burn or discard pictures of your ex? Whether they were your boyfriend or husband?

Fall Photo Shoot

Hey Everyone,

I’m back from Tennessee and I’m still catching my bearings. So, today’s post is a bunch of photos that I’m sharing with you. It is these moments that I realize my purpose in life…to be his mother. So here goes…

Munch and I took some photos with our favorite photographer, Erin, at Magnolia Street Photography last month and I wanted to share some of the flicks with you. I love taking photos with my son because it means that if something should ever happen, he will remember what I look like. He will remember these moments. They are some of the happiest times of my life.

Enjoy!
