Since our move, we’ve been decorating, really getting Blitzen engaged in her room but also in the decor of the apartment at large. We’re adding some photos of her and her family in addition to the many that we have of her, putting them in frames and hanging up around the house. We’ve always had lots of photos on the fridge and the bulletin board but we’re stepping it up a notch, going for a fancier presentation.
We had some lovely frames from back in the day (actually wedding gifts! so waaayyy back) that we removed the photos from and offered to Blitzen. This is the email that Andrew sent to me about what happened when he presented them:
Blitzen loved the picture frames. I showed them to her without photos in them, and invited her to find photos to put in them. She chose a picture of her, her littlest baby sister and one of her brothers for one and our wedding picture for the other. You can choose a picture with you in it, I invited. She pointed to our photo, then to the words “Loves Me” on the frame. Both frames are now in her room.
