Nostalgia:a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.

Nostalgia: pleasure and sadness that is caused by remembering something from the past and wishing that you could experience it again.

The definitions sum up my feelings looking back on my childhood and thinking of  my father.

  1. These photos are great. I love how photos like this can transport you back to your past, even if they’re not even your own. There’s something universal about the feeling you get when you look at old photos… thank you for sharing.


  2. You can sense joy and true loving affection between your Dad and you, Lisa. He was a handsome, charming and kind father, displayed in his holding your hand and you sitting on his lap as a toddler. ❤


  3. I love it to go through my old photos… and for a moment I’m back to this time where we all were together… I see the smiling people and I’m glad that we can’t look in the future… if some of us would know what will come, they probably would lose their smile and all the easiness of youth…


Thanks for stopping by-Would love to hear what you think!
