I remember as a little girl learning about the Titanic and being fascinated by this majestic ship and the story of its fate. 100 years ago today, RMS Titanic sank in the north Atlantic Ocean after hitting an iceberg. It was on its maiden voyage.
This weekend I have been watching documentaries on tv exploring many different elements of the Titanic disaster, its passengers and the wreck itself. No matter what, its a true story that always brings a tear to my eyes, all those lives lost on that fateful night, it was soo tragic, and the loss of the beautiful ship itself. The Belfast shipworkers who spent years building it to its full glory to lose it soo quickly, soo devastating.
I have two Titanic pictures in my home, one to represent the beauty of the ship as it would have been seen by many back in 1912, and the other to represent its final resting place on the ocean floor. I treasure them both, and one day when I move into a larger home I would love to expand on my memorabilia.

I purchased this framed piece whilst holidaying back in England (my birth place) and bought it back in my suitcase.
This picture is a still from the movie Titanic by James Cameron, its the part where Rose and Jack share their first kiss and as the music fades off hauntingly so does this image underwater showing them as ghostly silhouettes on the wreck.
Today I light a candle in remembrance of all those who lost their lives on board the Titanic on April 15, 1912.
