Painting the Bathroom

Recently, my grandmother wrote me a letter with some advice in it:

“Dear Erika,

 

Thank you for your very kind note. That’s great that you are fixing up your apartment. Do be sure to take photos as you go along—most especially, the end result.

 

We all think of photos for great events, but the smaller interests deserve recording as well—they are often forgotten because they don’t seem important at the time. I have some good photos of our first house. But I also wish I’d taken some photos of our curtains, handmade by me (not too well), but a distinctly 50s design—random grey and blue stickes on an off-white light canvas.”

The letter continued on, but this little piece of grandmotherly advice got stuck in my head and really resonated with me. Following Grandma’s advice, we diligently took pictures of our most recent project: painting the bathroom.

    Great advice from Grandma! So many times life gets extremely busy and we neglect documenting the “little things” that may seem unimportant at the time, however, make for amazing memories to recall later. Nice to see you’re taking time to preserve the fun times. btw … bathroom looks great!! 🙂
