Stories about sharing memories at home


Mom at Blackpool

There are a few things in particular that I enjoy about Facebook. I love reconnecting with old friends I haven’t seen or spoken to in many years. I just reconnected with my old friend Richard, and learned about his life on a rice farm in the beautiful Japanese countryside with his wife and two sons. The proud Mama in me also loves to share stories and photos of my twin boys.  They dominate my FB page.

My newest favorite thing to do, however, is to share old family photos.  My parents have tons of old photos, most of which are still stowed away in shoe boxes – of themselves as young hipsters, and of me and my brother as toddlers and teens.  Of late, I’ve been stealing the occasional photo, scanning it and sharing on Facebook.  One of my recent uploads was my Mom sitting beach-side in Blackpool, England in 1966.  The beautiful picture delighted so many in my FB family – people who knew my Mom back then and friends of mine who have never had the pleasure of meeting her.  Super fun!

I equally love it when others post “throw back” photos, I enjoy baby pictures of my friends, or better yet, high-school prom pictures, complete with puffy dresses and big hair. Posting old photos has become so popular that Facebook has deemed a specific day, “Throw Back Thursday” (aka TBT), encouraging users to post old pics of themselves and/or loved ones.  So, dig up your old photos, grab a scanner, and start sharing. Not to mention, you are also digitally preserving these fabulous photos for generations to come.

Mom and Dad, scanner coming your way, so prepare to lose the shoe boxes!
