What is it about memories that evokes such strong feelings in me?
I have always been rather sentimental...
when I was about 4 years old my mom was giving my favorite Mickey Mouse outfit to Deseret Industries (the DI).
I saw her put them in the box to donate and demanded to know why she was giving them away.
"They don't fit you anymore!" she said simply.
"But they don't fit the DI!!!!!" I wailed.
I am a minimalist and I love getting rid of things, and yet I am somehow completely sentimental.
And it doesn't take much for waves of nostalgia to come washing over me.
Every time we go to BYU, my mind is filled to overflowing with memories.
The boys love our visits...
and I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that every visit includes a stop at the Creamery for ice cream. *wink*
The Bean Museum has expanded so much since I was a student there.
It's pretty amazing to see the displays.
I love that it gives the kids a chance to see real animals up close--to study every little detail and soak in the beauty of God's creations. I always wish I could freeze a moment in time, and I suppose these beautiful creatures are forever frozen in their beauty and elegance.
