feeling FABulous with FAB Kids.
Every day I drive past this old abandoned gas station and every day in my mind I say that I would like to stop and take photos. But those thoughts are quickly brushed to the back of my mind.
The other day we stopped.
I pulled the car up next to the old building and slowly turned around to watch the cars rapidly drive past. I always wonder if someone will see me, if someone will wonder what I am doing. "Why, I'm capturing memories" is what I would say. Perhaps one day when Jess is in high school (oh, I can't even think that) or college she will stumble across these photos hidden away in a shoe box. Perhaps she will say, "Hey mom, remember that day we stopped at an old gas station with graffiti on the walls?" And I will respond, "Yes, and we took photos, and laughed and danced. And after we finished we went for hot chocolates."
This was a good day. We created memories. Memories that I document, like I do, and perhaps will tuck away in a shoebox for another day down the road. And on that day, when we dig through our memories, we'll be creating even more memories.
I wonder if I'll document that moment too.
I have a feeling I will.
