Things we lost

Per Tracy's request, here are some things we lost that we aren't necessarily SAD about but are kind of bummed about:

- Calistoga Balloons pin. We went to Napa Valley for our honeymoon, and I gave Dan a hot air balloon ride as a wedding gift. I am incredibly afraid of heights and hate flying. Yet, I still went up. (We also lost the video we took of said balloon ride and proof that I actually went!)

- A signed drumstick. Dan caught the signed stick at a concert and then went up and had the rest of the band sign it afterwards.

- Rubik's Cube. I spent DAYS (weeks!) solving the Rubik's Cube when I lived in New York. When I finally got it, it was a huge deal!

- Signed Lewis Black DVD. I LOVE Lewis Black. We saw him the night before the fire. I had a short conversation with him, and he signed my DVD. I am a little amazed that I actually took the DVD out of my car that night. (Thankfully I still have the signed ticket!)

- TOPLI55 license plate. My VW Beetle Convertible had license plates that said Topless (essentially).

- Mo's collar. I loved my cat, Mo. He lived with me in D.C., NY, and Boise. He went missing one October day in 2006. But we had his collar.

  1. Thank you for doing that, Brooke! I loved it! We all have things like that - I am so sorry you no longer have them - and I am grateful to you for sharing. I hope you are already collecting fun things like that again, and that you can enjoy them for a long time. This brings up an interesting question. Now that you have lost them, do you still want to save things similar because you truly do miss them, or does it make you want to not save a lot, cause maybe you realized they weren't so important? Gosh, I hope that made sense. :) I'd love to know!
