The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of September 30, 2016. For this challenge, show us what nostalgia means to you — perhaps a moment or scene that makes you feel wistful, happy, sad, or somehow longing for the past.

Welcome to my new Wednesday series! This is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, and I think today is a fine day to start!
