So much history here. I love your childhood attempts at writing your name. How cute.

How fortunate for you to have handwritten genealogy! It gives you the keys to find all sorts of information about your ancestry.

I adore calligraphy. Look at how you can write so fancy, and how different that is from your fabulous child's signature!

Your calligraphy looks pretty good. I read your comment on the FSO blog and just wanted to hug you. You fit in from the moment your name showed up on our log of participants.... You where so interesting that I felt intimidated to contact you. You seem to be one of the most put together people I have ever followed. Big hug from Rome.

You have very nice handwriting! Must be all that practice in your mama's cookbook.

I admire your calligraphy, it looks first class to me. All that practicising as a child must have paid off, huh? I think it's wonderful that you still have your childhood attempts at writing your name - that is really special!

Your first struggles with writing in that cookbook is my favourite here:)

Isn't it interesting that recipe books and family bibles have came up frequently in this week's handwriting theme? Love your first attempts at writing. You sure have improved since then, though, lol.
