Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey

This week has been a bit strange. Not only are Juli and Ava out of town for their yearly summer camp with the cousins in Illinois, but I've also been spending a lot of time digging through old photographs and keepsakes for a video I'm making for our 15th wedding anniversary this month. I'd be lying if I didn't say I feel a bit like I've been thrown down a wormhole of some sort.  Getting sucked into old memories for hours is kind of disorienting- especially without the the girls to yank me back to reality.  In addition to scanning stacks of photographs from the nineties, Jason and I also spent Sunday evening pouring over old issues of our high school newspaper. And drinking cocktails. (Wouldn't you know it, every time a headline jumped out at me as something funny and/or interesting I then saw "by Jason Gessner" printed beneath it.)

Don't even get me started on the baby pictures.

Looking through all this stuff makes me so happy but at the same time I've also been walking around feeling like I could almost burst into tears. I don't know why I'm acting like such a fragile little flower but it is what it is. Some of these photos seem like a lifetime ago and others I can describe to you exactly what I was thinking and feeling right then like it happened just last week. I guess what I'm trying to say is, "Is this real life?"

I'm planning on showing my completed video at our anniversary party. I'll be the one in the back with the cryface.
