Dad and daughter relationships explained through paintings

I happened to stumble upon some beautiful watercolour illustrations made by 37-year-old Snezhana Soosh. Dad and daughter bonds are special. When I saw 10 of the Soosh paintings on the Upworthy site, it brought back so many memories of me as young girl. Image #2 brought me back to when my dad taught me how to play chess. ...

RCA, you were amazing!

I cannot recall the exact date or year that my parents gave me my first television. I am quite sure that it was after I completed university, because I did not have a television in my room when I was away at school. I'm guessing the 26-inch RCA is at least 15 years old. It's ...

I'm feeling a little nostalgic this evening. We just lugged our Simmons Beautyrest mattress out to the curb. I can't recall for certain, but it's possibly 8-years-old.

This is the final instalment of the Twilight series, and it's the most that I've seen Bella smile. There was also a lot more humour in this ...

We normally do not bother with gifts for each other at Christmas. It's already enough stress finding the "right" gifts for our family members that we agree to view December 25th as just another day. But this year, I decided that I wanted to get hubby something interesting just because. I ended up getting him ...
