Major life changes always lead me to reminisce.  So, today I was thinking about a Trisha Yearwood song from my first CD ever: The Song Remembers When.  I was reorganizing and cleaning, looking through books.  Yes, songs bring back memories, but books do too.  Hence, tonight’s post…The Book Remembers When…

So many memories, from my childhood and my son’s childhood.  For me, these books are almost like pictures or home movies.  I can’t ever let them go…I am proud to be a book hoarder.
