The Annie Lynn Club is my virtual, backyard, tiny tree house. Welcome! This is a place to hang out, reminisce of a simpler time, and reflect about what feels like “home.”
I’m curating nostalgic stories from my past and sharing them here on this blog. I’m creating my very own “micro-museum,” open for self-guided tours with no lines to wait in.
Remember those homemade soup can telephones with the string attached at both ends? Imagine yourself with one of those, and I’ve got the other end. Let me entertain you. Anytime you need an escape or refuel from a long week I’d love to tell you a story right here.
I’m doing this to preserve and share my memories, but this project is not at all about being stuck in the past. I’m going to purposefully connect the dots from my past with the present. I hope to find clues as to who I most authentically am now. I’m also looking for inspiration for lyrics to songs I’m writing and new stories I’d like to write.
I want to restore a sense of curiosity in myself like I had as a little kid. I want to realign with a part of me that’s just waiting to be lit up again. I hope it encourages you to explore your own memories and dust off your own treasures. We all have something special to give to this world. This project is about shining a light on just what that is.
I’ll be taking a really close look at years of keepsakes and memorabilia I’ve organized neatly over the years. I hope to uncover clues about myself and stir up memories. I’m going to reflect, reminisce, remember and recall all sorts of experiences. Like opening up a time capsule, or unlocking a diary, I’m going to ask myself why I’ve kept the things I have. Is there more to it? What are the stories I associate with each item? I know there are lots of treasures to be found and stories to share. This is going to be an adventure! I’m so excited to get started.
This will be the home-base for my project. Come on over to my little club here whenever you like. I’ll leave the gate unlatched. (wink)
Want me as your personal tour-guide for this adventure? Consider joining my email newsletter: Annie’s Adventure. I’ll be sending out a summary of my latest blog posts straight to your inbox every other Friday. It’ll also give you access to some updates, and extras I’ll only be sharing through email. We’ll be like pen pals!
Annie’s Adventure is like a road trip down memory lane, and you’ll be my co-pilot! It’s a more personalized experience if you’re interested. What do you say?
I’m so tickled you’re here, it’s gonna be a hoot! ~Annie Lynn
