I won't get rid of the ornaments because like you said, they are treasures. I did destroy the 1974 ornament - that was the year we were married. But I have kept the rest.
I'm sorry that you have had to go thru the same thing as me - no pictures of yourself. I should have realized that something was not right when we went to Disney World in 73, before we were married. I shot dozens of pictures and only 2 are of me. One was in my bikini, so go figure.
I've decided to put the pics away and see how I feel a month from now, 6 months, whatever.
What do you think tho of tossing the scrap book? It is full of cards he sent me, poems he wrote, napkins from restuarants we ate at, etc. No pictures tho.
