Day 57 - Connections

Six years ago, Peg and I went to Scotland for 3 weeks. We saw beautiful landscape, met kind and interesting people, visited enchanting castles and made memories that will last a lifetime. Peg decided she absolutely wanted a genuine wool sweater as a souvenir from the trip. Getting that sweater was quite an adventure. I'll share that story with you another time. The Celtic ring above was my chosen souvenir. I often tease Peg that I have the better souvenir because I can wear my all year round AND it doesn't make my skin itch.
Today's assignment was to take a photo of something that shows connection. The knots are connected or interlacing. They symbolize the Celtic belief in long eternal love and life. This ring is one of my cherished possessions and definitely connects me to Scotland and the many memories that were made there.

I like how you got us up close and personal with the details of the knots. My daughter is just getting ready to go on an exchange trip to Europe and I'm trying to stress to her to spend her money on things that will create lasting memories, not just clothes.
