In our home, we have this gallery wall in the center of everything and as silly as it may sound, I kind of like to think of it as a grounding place for our kids. A reminder to them of where they belong and what is theirs. Often, when we're sitting in the living room together, they'll point up to a picture of themselves and recall the memory from it. Isla loves to point out that it was, in fact, her in my belly in that picture of me eating that ice cream cone. And she's quite fond of knowing that in the picture of the two of us on the beach in Oregon, she was nursing. Everett adores the picture that was painted of him, and tells Isla the story behind the picture of him and Tyson at Niagara Falls. The whole wall is us, and it's them. They know that I was the one to attempt painting that black and white canvas on the wall, so they were excited when I asked them if they wanted to make some black and white art for our walls too.
