The past few weeks I’ve spent time going through (and shredding some) old photos. Having spent our 25th anniversary at home last month, I’ve reminisced about past anniversaries and how blessed we have been. We’ve been able to visit Hawaii for three of our anniversaries (#5, #10 and #15). On our 15th anniversary in 2010, I had my pocket digital camera that I took everywhere. This week I tracked the photos down, did a little editing through Lightroom, and decided to share for this Lens Artist’s Challenge: Summer.
Sometimes we do not value awesome memories like we should. During this time at home, it is a great time to remember and relive past adventures.
I have read that you can spend money and energy on stuff that often loses value and joy over time. However, great memories only grow better and better over time. Experiences you remember seem to be enhanced as the years go by (you know how the size of that fish you caught seems to grow bigger each year?).
I believe it. Invest in memories, the best investment you can make 😊
At our Luau in Lahaina, celebrating our anniversary on June 10th:
We also visited Kauai on this trip, and stayed at the Sheraton Kauai Resort in Poipu:
