We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like.”- Alfred Hitchcock

So today I was catching up on some of my favorite blogs and I saw this post: http://nyctaughtme.blogspot.com/2011/08/museum-of-natural-history-highlight.html , over at New York City Taught Me.  First of all I have to say - go read her blog, it's fun and really makes you want to go visit the Big Apple! Also, her kids are adorable and she has the most creative photo of ideas of things to do and see when visiting these amazing places! (Just think Super Hero Capes...at museums!).

Anyways, she was talking about the time capsule at the Museum of Natural History, and I couldn't help but wonder....what I would put in a time capsule. If I were to make one. Now, when I make this time capsule in the space below it is just going to be for the purpose of me. Who I am, what I love, and what I think should be known for. I will also like to include interesting things about the outside world....the things that have to do with my life, and how I live it.

  1. I have always liked the thought of time capsules, it's so interesting to see the items and learn the stories about them when you open it up. :)
