  1. Great episode!
    I’ve never really held onto items for sentimental reasons and I don’t really like to receive things from family that are “heirlooms”. I’d rather have pictures and stories from family as well as memories rather than an item that takes up space. However, I do have a Civil War Calvary sword that my great-great-great grandfather used that actually saw some action.

    I found it hilarious that Victoria never heard of the term “across the pond” to reference our friends in the UK.

      That’s like how my mom has her great-grandmother’s spinning wheel in their living room. I wanted it when I was a kid. NOT ANYMORE. It is falling apart and I am tired of dusting it for her!
