This song makes me tear up every time I hear it…The longest I’ve ever lived in one house is 10 years. And that was in my house in Ruston. It didn’t start out as my house, it started out as our family home. Then my sister moved out and it was mine and my parents’ home. Then they moved…and it became my house. There were many family dinners (even more pizzas delivered on Friday nights ;), a lot of gatherings and parties, a lot of firsts, and a lot of love. I have a folder of pictures on my computer called “Ruston House” that I took for our realtor to put on her website when we sold it.

I haven’t been able to look at them…

Under the Crape Myrtle in the back yard, is buried our first family dog of 13 years, Shakespeare. And in the kitchen, under the dining table that’s still there, is where my dog, Merlot, hid for almost a week before she warmed up to me and became my best companion after 2 years. In the back bedroom is where I locked myself in my room after receiving the worst haircut in history – Later it became the headquarters for Ross Frazier Photography. The innumerable amount of memories the Living Room holds is a blog post in and of itself! The entire house of memories could fill a book.


Enjoy the song,

– Ross
