What’s your very first memory? Was it a birthday party? An image of a smiling loved one playing with your toys? Or maybe it was a funny moment where the particulars are hazy but you do remember laughing so much it hurt.
Chances are that most of our earliest memories are based on a photo. The pictures serve as a sort of trigger that, upon seeing them, a flood of memories and emotions from that moment are released. With one look at a picture, we can relive the joy, love, and contentment we experienced all those years ago.
