I've always felt like I could have lived in another time. I have an old soul, and appreciate things with a history. I love finding little treasures that tell a story, or learning about my family history. I was inspired to write this post the other day when I heard a Louis Armstrong song. Sometimes I think it would be so fun to live in another time, see how different things were back then. I thought it would be fun to list some of the reasons I consider myself to be an old soul.
// I love old music like Frank Sinatra and Etta James //
// I love the movie Midnight In Paris. I can relate to the idea of wishing you were from another time, and wanting to get a glimpse into the way people lived back then. //
// Sometimes when Andrew isn't home, I put on my Bing Crosby or Frank Sinatra Pandora station and cook dinner with a glass of wine. //
// I recently discovered my love of jazz //
// I hold on to everything I can from my family. My favorite pieces of furniture were my Grams, I have an old CD compilation that was my Granpa's, and vintage broaches I remember playing with as a girl from my Grandma Norene. //
// I was an Art History minor in college. I love learning about art, especially the stories being told in the paintings. //
// I am obsessed with Europe because of the history there. The Vatican and beautiful chapels throughout Italy, and the amazing museums in Paris. It's like a glimpse into the past. //
// I love tradition, especially around the holidays. I look forward to carrying the traditions I've grown up with on to my family someday. //
// I love browsing flea markets and searching for items that have a history. //
// I love museums //
// My favorite movie is White Christmas //
// Nothing beats getting a hand written note in the mail //
// I believe in writing thank you cards //
// I really want to learn how to make the perfect pie crust (Mom, I need a lesson) I think it's an important skill for any lady //
Such a random post for you on this lovely Friday! I hope you enjoyed getting a little glimpse into this old soul :)
Our Mexican Vacation is coming to an end, we'll be home tomorrow. It's been so nice to relax and spend time with Andrew! But we miss Louis, and are ready to come home.
