This is my grandfather and the wonderful woman who stood by him through much struggle and hardship. He served in the navy in the Second World War. I love and miss them both often. They were so integral in my growing up. Through my unfortunate and complex family structure these two were the only family I consider myself to have. They’d stick by you no matter what! I love that I can carry their legacy in my songwriting. I mention them sometimes and it instantly takes me back to their wood heated old family room filled with smoke from grandmas cigarettes. I love you both, and thanks for your service grandpa! #veteransday#thanksforyourservice#america#storyteller#wearehistory#usnavy

Realizamos un viaje al corazón de nuestra historia. El @museodelromanticismo recrea la vida cotidiana y las costumbres de la alta burguesía durante este periodo a través de espacios como la impresionante Sala de Billar. La mesa que observamos es obra de uno de los grandes fabricantes de entonces, Francisco Amorós, y se rodea de retratos femeninos que nos permiten observar la evolución que hubo a lo largo del siglo XIX en la moda: peinados, accesorios, vestuario e incluso el ideal de belleza.
We travel to the heart of our history. The @museodelromanticismo recreates the customs and everyday life of the high class bourgeoisie during this period, through incredible spaces such as the billiard room. The table is the work of Francisco Amorós a renowned furniture maker of this time. The table is surrounded by female portraits that allow us to appreciate the evolution of fashion throughout the 19th century. They show us the hairstyles, accessories, dresses and ideals of beauty during this time.
Today, our 4th grade experienced a field trip that is an annual favorite! They practiced using a bayonet, learned about colonial cooking and family life, played traditional colonial games, recited the Preamble, and fully immersed themselves in Virginian history. Our very own Ms. Johnson was given a personalized horseshoe, straight from the blacksmith’s fire, for her many years of bringing the most prepared and well behaved students.
Thank you, Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail for such a memorable day!

This is my great Auntie Lillian. 93, still going strong. Swiss born, she married my Great Uncle Alec (British born) and they spent a long & full life in Alberta Canada travelling the world. Our family memories are vivid & happy of childhood holidays with Uncle Alec & Auntie Lillian. She has dementia, so her recollection of me is less vivid, but the light & smile in her face and eyes says it all. People & places come and go for sure we know that to be true, but sometimes it’s important to re-connect with your roots and your family. Wherever & whenever you can, so you can keep their stories & spirits alive ... thank you @through_the_eyes_of_love for a grounding 48 hours in Edmonton with you & your incredible Mum. Heart is full of love. A poignant end to my time here. #canadayouhavemyheart#familyroots#wearehistory#awaken#ancestry
