Corey’s Writing Featured on Red Tricycle


Corey’s storytelling got some great additional exposure this past week when her post I’m Making Memories with My Daughter…and Leaving a Legacy was featured in the Spoke Contributor Network on the wide-reaching, parent-centric website, Red Tricycle.

If you take a look around Red Tricycle’s site, you’ll see it aligns pretty darn well with The Nostalgia Diaries’ objective of celebrating the past to create better days today.  Indeed, the Red Tricycle about page starts this way:

We believe the best memories are created when families do fun things together and we believe every day is an opportunity to create new stories.

We agree in creating positive memories for ourselves and our kids, and we are pleased as Punch that Corey’s writing on the benefits of using nostalgia to create life’s stories is reaching a wider audience. This story, first posted on The Nostalgia Diaries last December, is a favorite of many readers.  Red Tricycle reader Jen commented: “What a beautiful post! As usual, your stories move my heart!” We hope you agree!

If you like what you read, please share it with others you think would also enjoy it.  Happy Wednesday, friends!

I’m Making Memories with My Daughter
…and Leaving a Legacy

“Zoey!” I call out, the impatience apparent in my voice. I glance at my watch as I place my daughter’s lunchbox in her backpack.

7:32 a.m. Five minutes until we need to leave.

She’s supposed to be brushing her teeth, but instead of running water and toothbrush scrubbing, the only sound I hear coming from the bathroom is her sweet chattering. Zoey’s been talking to herself since she first learned to speak; how comforting it must be, I think, to always have someone to talk to, who you can always count on to listen. If it was the weekend, I would have just smiled to myself and let her carry on her conversation, but alas, it’s a school day.

The first bell will ring in 13 minutes.
