Do this with firsts (baseball gloves, ballet shoes, etc.) Love it!
There’s a first time for everything! Isn’t that how the old saying goes? There’s something about first times that are magical. Your first kiss, the first tooth that falls out, first date….the list goes on and on.
First times are memories that we all treasure and like to re-live. Finding ways to cherish these moments is like creating a treasure box full of happy thoughts. Tucking these memories away and pulling them out when we need to remember, feel a certain way, or share with friends and family. Yes, first times are special and finding unique ways to keep them alive can be fun.
It isn’t always memories that we try to capture. Sometimes it’s an item that holds sentimental value. For example, your first baseball glove, first pair of ballet shoes, or your first Valentine’s card from a boy/girlfriend. These are treasures that can also bring on feelings of joy or conjure up images from our past. In fact, some of us may find these sentimental items to be more valuable than the memories we hold in our minds.
Whichever “first time” memory you hold dear is yours and yours alone – show it off how you want.
