Some people admit to secretly going through their spouse's emails, texts, and even mementos from past relationships.Have I ever felt the need to do that? Nope, not once in 9 1/2 years.My husband and I have always been respectful of each other's pasts and the tangible items that go with those memories.For example, I have all my love letters since the 2nd grade when a boy named Daryl asked, “Do you like me?"

I want a Taj Majal in the middle of an otherwise crowded urban landscape.
Now I’m not normally a sentimental kind of mummy, I try to sneak the majority of drawings and painting into the recycling as soon as I can get away with it, but I just had to share this lovely note I got from Belle last night.
She’d had a bit of a teary bedtime, apparently upset over the fact that I do so much for her and she is unable to pay me....more
Do you keep little notes and cards that people have given you? I have notes from my husband and children and friends that I keep in a special place. I have messages on my phone that I don’t erase.
