Welcome To Find Yesterday

This site originated with the idea of wanting to connect more closely with my past. For some reason, turning 40 really made me take stock of my life and how far I’ve come. At the same time, I found myself spending a lot of time waxing nostalgic about the simpler, carefree moments of my youth. Blogging has helped to add more colour, texture and tone to those memories. 

There are so many things that make us reminisce about the beautiful people we’ve known, the awesome places we’ve visited and the meaningful items we’ve owned. Fortunately, as research is showing, it’s good to nostalgize. Read more about that here.

I only write about things that have impacted my own life since that’s all I know. I’m hoping that the nostalgic items I’ve chosen though, will trigger the discovery of stored smiles within your own life. As you peek at your past, your version of nostalgia will be unique to you, but perhaps the feeling will be similar to mine. In that way, we will have a shared experience.

Nostalgic Presents For Men

The blog has also become a resource for nostalgic presents for men whether it’s a husband, father, son or friend. When I look back at the most meaningful gifts I’ve received, they were definitely rich in nostalgic value. 


Originally known as The Landlord’s Game, Monopoly was first published in 1935. I didn’t play it much as a kid. Nostalgia Score: 5/10.
