My Lovies

My object is my lovies. My lovies are very important to me and holds a strong value in my heart. My lovies are like my “security blanket”. What my lovies are is my granny’s vintage scarf tied to her husband’s (my PawPaw) T-shirt and my baby blanket. I sleep with my lovies every night. I know that sounds so babyish but they comfort me. My lovies represents my family's cultural identity by reminding me of my past and helping remind me of everything my family has worked for in order for me to accomplish all of my goals. My family is american, I do not know of anyone in my family who migrated but I do know I have hints of Scott-Irish and German in my ancestry. My family's story is unique because of the same reason to everyone else. They are all different. My story is unique to me because it has shaped my family into who we are today. Everyone’s story is different because of everyone’s different reasons. My family’s story connects with other families' stories in a sense that we all have different ways we hold on to what is important to us. For me, it's my lovies. To others it might be clothing or dances. We all have a different way of holding onto what is important to us and what makes us, us!
