Throwback Thursday

Marvin was going through an old box from his mama's house. ( Yes we are still sorting through things about six years after her death.) Marvin is very sentimental about his mama's things and he can only look at so much at a time. He also has a hard time deciding what to keep and what to toss.  Another reason I am trying to pare down my things so my children will not have to make those decisions.

Anyway, long story short...look what he found.

This photo was taken for the Kern UMC directory in 1977.  We look young. I was 22 and Marvin was 26. We lived in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Marvin was getting his PhD at Oak Ridge National Lab and I was an RN at Oak Ridge Methodist Hospital. We lived in a one bedroom apartment and life was good.

I also came across this picture of us that was made about 12 years ago.


It was made in our house on Brandywine Drive.  I think this might have been when I first started blogging. I blogged for a few years, decided to quit and deleted my old blog. However I could not stay away from blogging. It really is a  great community and I missed sharing with my friends.

Hope you enjoyed traveling back in time with the Grimms.

It is hard to pare down on treasured memories. Both pictures are lovely finds. And Arlene, I am glad you returned to blogging!

I am thinking that wallpaper in your dining room is the same as the wallpaper in our dining room before we moved into Jeff's parents' house. HAHA!
Y'all were adorable in both pictures. How time flies!

It is hard to make those decisions, but I am happy to see your 'throwback' photo from your early years together! Walks down Memory Lane are always fun!

Fun to recall those early years, isn't it, Arlene? Love both photos and am happy you've resumed blogging :)

Sorting through things is very hard, indeed, but I'm glad there are treasures to be found like these photos. The happy mixed in with the sad — life in a box.

It really is hard to know what to do with those sentimental things. I have a hard time getting rid of them too. I like the pictures!
