My (oh my!)

I decided once again to join the One Little Word challenge with the word "my". I veered from topic to topic on this one - you can really use the word in so many ways. But I knew that I really wanted to do a layout about R and once I had decided to use my favourite photo, the rest came together quite nicely.

I have hand-written some journalling around the edge of the photo telling him how much I love this photo and how he just looks so relaxed and at ease and that I wish I could help him to feel this way every day, but that I will never stop loving him.

And then I kept thinking about the word "my" and going through some recent photos, I came across those I had taken in February when I was home in UK and saw that the buildings around the corner had been demolished. I stopped to take some poignant snaps of what had been my treasured business and flat. I had a small dress design business back in the late 80's, designing and making evening wear and bridal dresses in a workshop on the first floor of a local shop and then I lived on the second floor. Those were hard times, with long hours, no money, no central heating, no bathroom & no hot water (luckily for me, it was just 100yds around the corner from mum). But it was also an incredibly wonderful time for me with treasured memories of the time I worked hard for something I was passionate about and had many happy and satisfied clients - many of whom were beautiful, young brides! (so much fun...) I was young enough not to mind the hard work and no food, and continued there for three years, of which I was very proud. The building was a very historic one in Harborne and it is such a shame that it has been pulled down - it really made me sad. The layout just came from that. There is a journalling card underneath the photos.
