Summer Surprises . . .

What a hot month July has been. Perhaps not for everyone who reads this blog, but for those who have been loving the heat, keep soaking it up. For those like me who avoid it, summer is almost over. The days are starting to get shorter, going to camp and visiting the relatives are coming to an end, school will begin for some, and hopefully, cool weather will make its return. Meanwhile, summer still has a few surprises up her sleeve and just recently, my family received one in the form of a large envelop stuffed with family papers and photographs.
What treasures!

As previously mentioned, I am in the process of writing a book on this blog and it is taking me all summer to do it. Taking selected blogs and editing them into a book has not been easy, but enjoyable. Being dedicated to this project, I have not blogged as often as I should, however, during August, I am going to write about the papers and pictures we received and how they will be organized, preserve and displayed. After all, that is what having a Family Museum is about; showcasing your family’s history.
So log on to my blog as often as you can and see what was discovered. Until then, enjoy the remaining summer times and don’t forget to capture those moments any way you can.  A quote by Gail Lumet Buckley, a contemporary author, is very fitting for times spent with family and friends:

"Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present and future. We make discoveries about ourselves."
