Time in a Bottle

If you could save time in a bottle, what would you save?

“If I could save time in a bottle

The first thing that I’d like to do

Is to save every day till eternity passes away

Just to spend them with you”

 From “Time in a Bottle “by Jim Croce

Time in a Bottle
Alexandra, 26 with Craig in Seattle, WA (2014)


Where did the time go? One minute she is speaking in her own funny language, running on the sand and the next she is working in a high rise in Seattle.  How is it that our children grow up, but we feel the same as we did when they were babies? Even when we try to hold on tight, the strings of time still slip from our fingers.

I am happy to have time pass and enjoy our beautiful life, but there are times I wish I could just keep in that bottle.

How about you?

Share Adventure!

  1. Not sure if I made sense there Suzanne, you hit the nail on the head! I know exactly how you feel… Love your blog! Thank you!

  2. I agree that time whipped by. When our boys were little, I fear I was too busy to enjoy them as much as I could/should have (no do-overs) and their teenage years made us more than ready for them to fly the nest. Now they’re grown ups. I find I dream about when they were little. (Instead of a comment luv share, I’d like to share a more topical blog post–on the subject of empty nesting).

    • I dream about them being little too! It was a special time. All of the funny things they said. Thank you for sharing your post!

  3. This was sweet to see your Father / Daughter pics from THEN and NOW!

  4. Beautiful young woman! Yes, I wish I could relive a moment or two or see it like viewing my life as a movie on special moments and slow it down and savor it one more time!
