Way Back When-esday: Unbroken Circles

Dateline: May 2005
Twins' Age: 3 and a half

The VMFA has been a favorite locale since our babes were in utero. Around this time, we were able to venture out of the double stroller on occasion and follow directions well enough to enjoy the collection a bit more intimately. Michele Oka Doner's IO Bench (fondly dubbed "The Circle Bench" by Sarah and Darren) was a frequently requested destination. You can see why. When the museum's expansion is complete in May 2010, we plan to re-create this very scene and send both images Ms. Oka Doner's way.

Another precious circle came my way 14 years ago today, when Double Daddy asked me to marry him. That ring, like the one above, remains strong, sturdy and all the more valuable for the darling twosome added to the mix.

What memories make your mid-week wonderful? Dive into those digital photos or scan a scrapbook find and play along with Way Back When-esday. Be sure and link back to participate in the web-wide reverie...and leave a comment when you do!
