17.08.13 Сегодня этой фотографии 5 лет. Но что важнее,влюблённая пара на фото сегодня отмечает 5 лет совместной жизни.😍
Из традиций. 🌳 Деревянную свадьбу празднуют в пятую годовщину. Супруги должны посадить “свадебное” дерево, 🏡показать гостям, что научились забивать гвозди и, конечно же, выпить шампанское!
На самом деле, Деревянная свадьба одна из важнейших дат: это время подводить главные итоги, момент, когда пора строить серьезные планы на будущее, основываясь на уже достигнутом.
Ребята поздравляю вас!!!😊 Живите дружно😉Ну и по традиции: #счастьяздоровья

“Hyde Park, Boston MA, 1915” 
Oh, the white dresses, oh these women arranged on the front steps, and my great-aunt Hunna in her white stockings and the huge butterfly bow in her hair.  I don't know who most of these people are — the 4th woman from the left is my great-grandmother Edie and her daughter Helen "Hunna" is standing just below her — and the rest appear in other photos I have, but so far, no names.
•
And whether I ever identify any of the rest of the women, it's really these faces looking back at me. The hair. The clothes. The poses. The expressions. I imagine the photo was taken and then everyone went back to the conversation they’d been having. The kids ran off to do secret kid things that didn't include standing still. The women sat on the front steps. Talking. Laughing. On a spring or summer afternoon. Like we still do. Today.

We came to see the amazing Beth Lewis @lewisbethj at her theater THE VAULT where #BagandBaggage does their performance magic!! The space is amazing and the staff super friendly. Kicking myself that I'll be missing out on a stage combat workshop. Next time! Thank you for letting us into your 🌎, Beth. It's always an absolute joy to see you!!! Big hugs to @lewisevand and Max. ❤🎭🎪🌹🍀

My great, great, great uncle named this #mountain #trapperpeak. Doesn’t change the mountain, but it changes the way I see it.

In twelve days it will be exactly one year from my dad's passing, so this one is for you dad:

My dad was a little troublemaker. He was the first of eight kids and got into everything! My grandma had a room full of sweets for the Persian New Year that she locked so none of the children could go in and eat the sweets. My dad was seven at the time, and somehow got the key for the room, went in and started eating. My uncle, my dad's younger brother, realized this and went to tell his mom. My dad heard the commotion outside and jumped out of the room window, came around the back of the house, stood behind my grandma and uncle trying to open the door, and said "what's going on?" I love you dad. Miss you every day. ❤️❤️❤️ #dad #ripdad #missyoudad #family #familystories #love

I have been wanting to make a video of our bedtime routine for a while now. But I was waiting for the perfect evening to film — 1) kids in a good mood 2) husband home in time 3) sunny day 4) tidy house 5) good hair day for me. That “perfect” evening was never going to happen. So one day I just picked up my camera and filmed (ok the matching jammies was intentional 🤷🏼‍♀️)
.
You don’t have to have a perfect house or perfect clothes in order to document your every day. One day, you’ll want to look back and remember things exactly how they were.

Is anyone else fascinated by the people, experiences and paths that had to cross for you to exist? Yesterday we lost my great grandfather, Lance - one of the most cheeky, cheerful, resilient people I’ve ever met. While I’ve been drinking my port and listening to Johnny Cash to remember him, I’ve been thinking of not only the smiley old man with rum in his cough syrup I grew up with, but the handsome young man who took girls to the dance in a buggy, charmed a pretty girl called Valma Elsie with his skinny ties and built a house from scratch for his new bride. I think those stories are so important, and don’t want them to go with him, so next week I’ll go back to that house and rummage through the collections to add to my files. Vale Pop.

#genealogyphotoaday: Day 16: P is for Pier, as in the pier at Liverpool, England. It was here that my aunt Bernadette — my mam‘s eldest sister pictured with her eldest son James — waited on the pier before boarding the ship the ‘United States’. My mam and dad accompanied Bernadette to Liverpool to see her and James away when they emigrated away from Ireland. Bernadette and James Jr. were following Bernadette’s husband, and James’ father, James Sr. to a new life away from Ireland. My mam recollected that although her sister felt terrified at the prospect of leaving behind life in Ireland, she was looking forward to her new life on the other side of the world with her husband.

起了個大早
但公車好慢才來
走走走很神奇
不會太餓
朋友說有時候我們是有食慾並不是真的肚子餓
但太陽太大
所以蠻渴的
小溪有冰涼的水
嗯喝了!
Gwangju life is quite healthy! Walk a lot but eat not too much ! 
So glad to hike the 1187 high mountain! I will work hard to climb more and more mountain! 頑張れ!

Почему никто не сказал, что фоткать детей на загранпаспорт это целое представление с элементами акробатики, фокусов и клоунады??😫
⠀
Вобщем, благодаря наводке @aantakova мы решили сделать Марку загранпаспорт до повышения госпошлины через госуслуги. Все равно хотим поехать куда-нибудь зимой🌴, так почему бы не сделать заранее и со скидкой. (Для тех, кто не знает, госпошлина за загранпаспорта увеличилась с 1 августа, но через сайт  госуслуги можно все доки подать со скидкой в 30%).
⠀
Документы подали в июле, заплатили за паспорт нового образца 1050 рублей! 💸Космические деньги)) и стали ждать, когда мистера Марка позовут фоткаться.📸
⠀
День х настал вчера, мы нашей дружной семье пришли в полной уверенности, что пыффф, чего там сложного, это же просто фото. 📷Ага, тут началось все самое веселье. Отстояв Очередь в км, зашли мы в кабинку, отдали оригиналы и копии доков и получили инструкцию, как держать ребёнка, чтоб он смотрел в камеру, но чтоб родителя на фото не было. 👼Короче, это треш. По очереди мы с мужем лежали в кабинке на полу, держа сына высоко над собой, он бесился, дрыгал ногами, фотки смазывались, специалист смеялась и злилась. 🤪🤪Под конец вышла одна несмазанная фотка, на которой сын как уголовник, ок.
⠀
И совет от девушки из кабинки-дак вы чего паспорт старого образца не сделали, не надо было бы тащить сюда ребёнка, той фотографии  бы хватило, что вы присылали. 😡😡😡!!!!!!!! ОК!!!!!🤣🤣
PS фото от  @bessonovakatrin Катя, ждём новую порцию🤓

When you adopt a new puppy into the family, and your little babies aren't so little anymore, it's a perfect time for family photos! 🐶

I love spending an evening catching up with family.  #cousins.  #familystories
Every family/person has a story ... I am so honored to be a part of it. Where you choose to live is a huge part of each story. This family after their daughter left for college decided to downsize and split the proceeds between an affordable condo in Spokane and a condo in Mexico. They plan to spend 6 months in each every year. I love their sense of adventure and how they are diving into being empty nesters with enthusiasm and big plans. Congrats on the sale of your home and the purchase of a great condo and 6 months in Mexico every year!

We all leave our prints on this world 👣 So here is the story behind this photo: Today my husband and I visited the place, where his catalan grandparents had a house in Barcelona. When he was just a little boy, about two years old, he ran over the fresh concrete after the construction workers just had finished their work. They saw the little footprints of my husband, got angry and wanted to redo everything. But his grandfather asked them to just leave the sidewalk as it was. So that every time he walk on it up to his house, he would be reminded at his grandson from Germany. So as today you’re still able see the little footprints of my husband on that sidewalk. ❤️ #truestory #childhood #footprints #concrete #sidewalk #santboi #barcelona #unbelievable #storytime #greatstories #catalunya #myhusband #mylove #barcelonastories #footprintsonconcrete #traveling #goingback #memories #childhoodstories #leavingfootprints #spain #catalonia #españa #familystories #hedwigtshirt #clarks #familytime #revisitingpast #photowithmeaning #growingupsofast

I am beyond speechless with the generosity shown by Ariel and the GA marketing team. Ariel reached out to me after my post about Gaylord Archival products. I was shocked that a representative from such a notable company would even view my IG project, let alone offer to help by providing materials on the house. I'm just so extremely thankful. Two items not shown are the photobox and rare book box. I will be posting product reviews in the near future, so keep an eye out for those!

“About the last of May, previous to our departure from Nauvoo, I was aroused from my slumbers one night, hearing such heavenly music as I had ever heard before.  Everything was so still and quiet when it burst upon my ear that I could not imagine where it came from. I got up and looked out of the window. The moon shone bright as I looked over at the temple from when the sound came. There on the roof of the building, Heavenly bands of music had congregated and were playing most beautifully. The music was exquisite! And we had to leave all this; the temple, our homes, and the pleasant surroundings and bid farewell. It was too are our tents, O Israel.”
-Nancy Naomi Alexander Tracy

My 4th Great Grandmother kept a journal through her travels as a Mormon Pioneer. My 4th cousin and her mom printed the journal into a book. I’m so thankful to those who knew the importance of the written word and kept their stories. They may have felt at times their life may be insignificant to others but truly their lives are miracles and so important to me.  Do you have an ancestor who kept a journal?

Отличное завершение свадебного дня и фотосессии - #пиротехническоешоу 😊🎆🎇🔥 А как закончился ваш свадебный день? 💒
 С 2009 года я посвятил свою жизнь свадебной фотографии с фотосъемками в различных городах России.🌁🌃🌆🌇🏢
Самым главным качеством свадебной фотографии считаю - эмоции, отношения людей,нежность и романтику.😍

Hi friends! I spent yesterday with some friends having one last summer hurrah at Six Flags. It was so fun and tiring 😆
.
. In between all the getting ready for school stuff I’m determined to finish lots of journaling on several weeks. My go tos are @inacreativebubble @aliedwardsdesigninc and @ellesstudio (not seen here) for working on my PL 18. Thanks for looking! .

Back to the roots. In that house my great grandparents used to live. The neighbours still remember them. They told me there is an old women in the village that was once in love with my grandfather. Never got married and even after 50 years she still mentions him. #łaźnia #kraków #backtotheroots #family #generations #touching #oldtimes #familystories #explore #woodenhouse

In this world of digital madness, we spend so much time with our technology. And in those important moments we tend to forget that we can memorialize our memories in a flash utilizing said technology. Memories are important, but occasionally that visual reminder triggers a deeper memory of that moment. And those insights of those memories are priceless too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am not a fan of pictures, I hate sitting for them. But I know that having a visual look back into the past can be important, and for those who come after they will be priceless. And I realized that even though I have pictures of our fur babies, family & friends. I don't have a lot from recent years. And looking back I had tons of them when they were kittens (when they do all the cute stuff). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Take time to make the memories with friends, family, and don't forget the pets. And if you think of it, snap a picture, or grab something that will trigger that deeper memory, or something that the generations that follow will cherish as a part of the story they will hear.

An article about the "Pasta Grannies" popped up on my Facebook last week and I instantly fell in love! When Vicky Bennison noticed that the art of home and hand-made pasta was dying, she wanted to do something about it. So, she finds sweet "grannies" near her home in Italy who still make their own pasta and she films them - and their technique - so it will be preserved. They are so fun to watch and it makes me want to film my grandmother making some of my favorite recipes of hers so I can keep the tradition alive! (You can follow along with them @pastagrannies)

I know I've shared this already, but one of my favorite family stories is of dad bringing mom a bouquet of these at the hospital when I was born.

Hands down this is perhaps my FAVORITE spread in the book. Grandma V tells the story about how her fried peach pies went missing during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963. Can you see Grandma V? —

Grandma V is rich in historical events. Fact about me: I LOVE HISTORY. If I could find a job as museum educator I would be in heaven. One thing I don’t think we stress enough is learning the history of our elders. Learning from my grandmother while she cooked over a hot stove are some of the greatest experiences that shaped who I am today. If you have elders in your family please sit down and record their history. I promise you there will be no regrets.

Do you ever look at an old photo and figure out the ages of those pictured?
.
I just did that with this photo of my grandparents taken at my parents’ wedding. August 17, 1963. Almost 55 years to the day.
.
In this photo, my Grandpa Dunlap is 52, Granny D. is 51, Granny Klein is 48 and Grandpa K. is 44. (Left to right).
.
44. The same age I am right now.
.
Why does he look so much older? Or is the filter that I am projecting?
.
I think it is also the fact that these are my grandparents.
.
They were always old in my mind’s eye.
.
When my Grandpa Dunlap died (the first of my grandparents) I wasn’t surprised. In the mind of a 13 yr old he was old at 79.
.
In fact to me it was setting things straight after losing my dad at the age of 43 when I was 10.
.
Age is an interesting concept. The perception and the reality can sometimes be on totally opposite ends of the spectrum.
.
I wonder what my future (hopefully) grandchildren will think when they see a photo of me taken now.
.
I don’t feel “old” and I have a feeling my grandparents didn’t especially on this happy day when both of their only children were getting married.

I created this picture wall last year and it has turned out to be one of my favorite things in my house. The 16 photos tell stories about our family, hobbies, travels, and personalities. I love looking at and remembering.  My inspiration came from @ashdae (but hers was gold!). In a few short weeks our wall will change, as we add another member to our family and we will have a bigger story to tell. #ilovemyhouse

I’m loving the last day of summer with my kids. We’ve experienced a lot together this summer. One thing they didn’t experience this summer but I know one day WILL experience is discrimination and racism based on their skin color and their looks.
🤙🏽 Peter and I recently experienced a very rude and racist situation just last week. I don’t let things like this get to me, if anything, I was proud I knew who I was and that my self-love was impenetrable. That self-love is powered by family history. I learned a long time ago that the color of my skin is a reflection of ancestors who were missionaries, chiefs, farmers, warriors, travelers, storytellers and women and men of God from Polynesia. It is also a reflection of my ancestors from Scotland and Ireland who fell in love with people that looked like me 🤙🏽 Family history gives me STRENGTH to never question my identity, CONFIDENCE that helps me be ME, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE that reminds me that racist people need it more than anyone else, ACCEPTANCE to try to meet people where they are at without judgement and PATIENCE because the Lord (and my ancestors) know I need it 😂 🤙🏽 How has family history helped you in your life? ❤️

Start researching your family history in August: digitise and label your family photos, access Ancestry.com.au at your library, attend a family history workshop, and interview your relatives to capture their stories. I can help you with interview preparation and transcriptions.  I'm researching my grandmother Mary from Bristol, UK, so that I can write her story. #familyhistory #nationalfamilyhistorymonth #geneaology #familyhistoryresearch #heritage #familystories #historicalresearch

Насчёт памятника великого поэта... Решила, что к месту будет написать такой постик после селфи с ним.)) Не люблю хвастаться, но Инстаграм такое место, где все про себя что-то рассказывают😅 Поэтому почему бы и нет🤷 В общем вы знаете, а может не знаете, что памятник сотворил #скульптор #Опекушин в 1880 году. Орнаменты, художественную цепь и тд создавали #ремесленники , в частности, на заводе Овчинникова на Таганке (с Таганкой меня вон какие давние года связывают☝️). На этом заводе также работал мой прапрапрадед Андрей Кондратьевич Шканов, #чеканщик по художественной чеканке (извиняюсь за тавтологию, но как назвать?🤷), и он был как раз одним из тех, кто отливал и обрабатывал #орнаменты на памятнике А.С. Интересный факт, работая в кузнице, осколком металла ему выбило глаз. А вообще интересно, все Шкановы по мужской линии до моего прадеда владели этой профессией. Прадед не учился этому, т.к. в подростковом возрасте остался сиротой (в безумные годы 1900-х), зато его сын, мой дед, стал художником и иллюстратором. Неудивительно, откуда у меня тяга к прекрасному - заложена в генах.

Circa late 1800s, New York City, students at the Normal School of New York. Could our “G-Mama” and Great Great Aunt Helen be one of these women? It’s possible. After attending Staunton, Virginia’s Augusta Female Seminary (now Mary Baldwin University) under the tutelage of aunt Mary Julia Baldwin for whom the school was later named, my great-grandmother and her sister enrolled at the Normal School of New York now known as Hunter College. Their widowed mother Eliza Jane Van de Graaff Baldwin had moved her daughters from Mississippi to Alabama to Virginia and finally to NYC to further their educations. #Thenormalschool #huntercollege #womenseducation #marybaldwin #genealogy  #familystories #familyhistorian #genealogyphotoaday #startswithN

“You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

My grandpa Dennis was honored a few weeks ago with an award for his service in the US Navy. He served as a Seabee during WWII and another 20+ years of service. He is 93! We are so proud of him. 🚢 “Set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship.”

Тепло семейных вечеров (в особенности этого), большиииие застолья и много-много смеха, ведь мы так редко собираемся всей семьёй 😔
Очень любим приезжать к своим родственникам и принимать их у нас в Кирове). Прям целый ритуал приготовлений. И сильно ждём наших америкосиков 💔
Люблю когда сидим за большим столом и родители рассказывают свои смешные истории из детства ✨
В этот раз насмеялись от души, разбираясь в семейном древе) 
Лейтмотив поездки: Соня, ты сестра мне или племянница? Вроде сестра... 🤔😂 Соня (все таки сестра) протусовалась с нами все время, под конец сказала: «Я хочу домой, к родителям», все вздохнули с облегчением и папа крикнул: «Ура! Мы их победили!» 😂
Повзрослев, прощаться стало легче, зная, что можем увидится в любое время, стоит только позвонить)

Тепло семейных вечеров (в особенности этого), большиииие застолья и много-много смеха, ведь мы так редко собираемся всей семьёй 😔 Очень любим приезжать к своим родственникам и принимать их у нас в Кирове).

“We just want a memory that we lived our amazing lives here in San Fransisco!” When a beloved client makes a special request... Between cutting hair, record labels and being the best mommy and daddy ever, these two have made a beautiful life here in the city. 
Their sweet baby, Anise has no idea the gift, god gave her with these two fun loving, big hearted parents.
Love you @shabtastic7 and @deep ndelgado

@lakesidenan here’s an oldie but goodie from the wayback machine. I was just writing about grandma Beckett on the left. She had bright blue eyes, like my father; and she made fizzy bubbles in a Black Cow, if you know what that is.  When my father died, she came to live with us for awhile. That’s when I started teaching in our basement, at age 8, on roller skates, to music from 78 rpm records in an enormous mahogany console. #personaldisclosures

#genealogyphotoaday: Day 14: N, as in ‘Notice To Quit’: The notice of eviction served on the widow Mary Campbell of Curradrehid, County Roscommon, 31 October, 1849. During An Gorta Mór, the Great Famine of 1845-1852, as well as in the decade following, it is a sad fact that around half a million Irish tenants [Ó’Murchadha 2004] received such notices to vacate their homes and lands. In this case Mary had to be gone by 1 May, 1860. On the Mahon Estate in Roscommon, Mary was one of 84 widows evicted. The fact that these women — some with young children — had no where to go, and no means of support, was of no consequence to the landlord. *

Feeling Blessed this morning!
A little back story on the window.. because everything in your home should have a story...
5 years ago right after our son was born I had the opportunity to Travel to Berkeley California take part in the remodel of a historic 1904 home with most of its original furnishings.
The 4 week project was amazing. - The adventure started in Tulsa, OK where we packed up our two young girls and a nearly brand new baby boy and set off for California.
We drove straight to LA where the wife and kids stayed with her wonderful family while I continued on to Berkeley.  The next day I arrived at the house and the real adventure began. 
The home owner was a professor from the University of Tulsa, and this was his childhood home, and where he stayed while attending Berkeley’s University of California.  #thisoldhouse was ready for a makeover, and was getting siding, flooring, windows, and Electrical.
💡 The electrical was my part of the project, upgrading the archaic knob and tube wiring.⚡️ One of the best Jobs ever!!!! Not only did we stay in the house while we were there working, every night the professor would set out two bottles wine after dinner and we would share stories until they were empty. 
#educatedguesswine #cabernetsauvignon  The house, the city, the project!! It was such an amazing trip and an unusual job, I just had to have a keepsake. 
The window!!! -
