Yesterday, I went with the hubs to run an errand...
- I didn't feel like going -
But I learned that sometimes you should go, that you're glad you did,
even when you didn't want to.
We went here, to the Monmouth County Clerks Office...
to scan through these books.
Inside, the books looked like this, information dating back to 1909.
Data and filings from 1906 here, the handwriting was exquisite.
I instantly feel in love with theses books and their discolored, well worn pages.
Their reinforced corners protecting the delicate pages.

Next time I don't feel like going, I will remember today...and how much I enjoyed it!
