  9. Oh, my goodness what a sweet thought.
    That reminds me, I had my “first” hair cut even before I was born. My mom has that lock of hair from my head, the doc cut just as I was crowning.
    I wish I had a photo of that.

    Great photos for the theme. I’m sure my husband wouldn’t keep a lock of my hair.

    I found a lock of hair and a rose pressed into our family bible, but don’t know who they belonged to. In another spot there was a love poem by my great grandfather to my great grandmother. Finds like those make your ancestors real to you.
