Ten Years Ago

Ten years ago, I was living in the same home I'm click clacking across the keyboard from today.

Ten years ago, this home was occupied by only my husband and two cats.

Ten years ago, sleep was only ever disturbed by one noisy and one bed stealing cat.

Ten years ago, scrapbooking was leisurely and liberally enjoyed.

Ten years ago, a craft room, guest room and office occupied the other bedrooms.

Ten years ago, I happily began converting said craft room into a nursery.

Ten years ago, I had zero appetite and world numbing nausea.

Ten years ago, I didn't know fresh grated ginger steeped into a tea helps calm nausea.

Ten years ago, pregnant with our first child, excitement seeped through the stomach churning.

Ten years ago, our home was happy and quiet; but in ten years how a family, noises filled with laughter and animation, can grow.

Writing along with Mama Kat today, using her second prompt: Start with the phrase "Ten years ago on this day, I was…".

I have no idea what I was doing on this particular day ten years ago, but I remember how our world was beginning to change while in my first trimester with our first child!

Let's BEE Friends


  1. My baby anticipation moment was 17 years ago, but I remember walking through the quiet apartment, wondering how the baby would change things.....oh so many wonderful, fantastic, lovely changes! Thanks for posting!

  2. I remember those awful pregnancy feelings... ugg... so terrible. But the end result is everything we could have ever hoped for and more, isn't it?

  3. I was typing and suddenly everything disappeared. I hope you don't get a duplicate. Anyway, thank you for sharing a glimpse of your life 10 years ago! Isn't it cool to see all the good in the way your life has changed. :)

  4. beautifully written, and mine was 13 years ago, but yes to most everything you wrote!

  5. Lovely! And hey, I was pregnant ten years ago today too, and nauseated and hurling daily. Yay us!

  6. Ten years ago.....I'm not sure what I was doing either but I'm sure it had something to do with the just turned one year old in the house! ;) Time sure flies doesn't it? Can you believe in a couple more years we will have known each other 10 years??? That's pretty amazing! Thanks for the reminder to look back a few pages in my story and see how much has changed....

  7. Amazing how 10 years can look so different! Love how you wrote this. Must have been fun thinking way back when ...

  8. What a difference a decade can make! How fun to have this glimpse into your world 10 years ago. As usual, I just love your voice in your writing. Kudos buddy!

  9. I love this! Beautiful writing, and a wonderful recollection of that miraculous time being pregnant with a first child :) (Found you through the Write On Edge weekend linkup)

  10. Such beautiful, precious memories. :)

  11. This really is pretty. I think about these types of moments in my own life, as my husband and I are hoping to turn some space into a nursery soon. :-)
