Amy at The World Is A Book sets us the challenge of recalling precious memories in a year that might have lack any or many. She’s shared lots of lovely photos of happy, mask-less people, something which probably features large in any of our precious memories. I’m going much further back to share the precious memory of family.

Memories, precious to me, of “my” park in Illinois and winter, which I do miss.

Wonderful memories of a memorable trip to Yosemite.

A beautiful welcome to Arizona!

And for the furthest back memory, a selfie of sorts with “my” first horse/pony. The owner brought the pony to our house during his trip around the neighborhoods and my parents paid for my photo to be taken. Happy? Oh, yeah! Much better than the ice cream truck!

  1. Such precious photos of your family! Especially the first one!
    P.S. I miss snow, too. Missouri doesn’t have much of it at all 😦

    • Yes, that first one is a classic. 🙂 They’re both grown up now and just as lovely. I know people in Arizona generally think I’m crazy to miss snow, but I do. When I know there’s some in the mountains, I’ll be taking a trip! 🙂 Thanks, Svetlana.

    What a cute little cowboy you were 🙂 🙂 A real contrast in your choices of home, Janet.

    You make a nice looking young cowgirl. Nice post of shared memories from the past.

  12. Resa says:

    Lovely, lovely memories, Janet!
    You are sooo cute, and the girls are beauties. Love this!

    There’s only one thing better than a ride on a pony. That’s a ride on a pony while eating an ice cream cone LOL. What a fun post Janet – enjoyed your precious memories. And of course your stylin’ cowgirl hat!!

    • I think all of the cowgirl get-up came with the photographer, but that didn’t stop me from loving every moment, Tina. As much as it pains me to say it, I’d never ride while eating an ice cream cone or anything else. Too many chances your mount will act up or need direction right at that moment and ice cream looks better in the cone than on your clothes. 🙂

      • Tina Schell says:

        LOL, one of the greatest disappointments of my youngest years was when I asked for a cowgirl outfit for Christmas and got an indian outfit instead! I hope I didn’t let my parents see how disappointed I was!!! I SO wanted to be Dale Evans.

  14. Teresa says:

    Oh Janet, that first photo is just adorable!

  15. marianallen says:

    We had the pony guy, too! Well, probably not the SAME pony guy, but we had one. Happy memories, indeed!

  16. JohnRH says:

    Beautiful! Kids and childhood, indeed, are precious.

    Wonderful images, Janet, and great memories, too! I especially love the last image and the one of Yosemite.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
