    Hello, Ben, and welcome to WR.

    I would like to know who we is referring to in your sentence, I have a hunch the context could be especially inportant here.

    I thought the context might be important, imagine the quote being in reference to a picture that represents a particular time in the early stages of a relationship, despite how much the relationship evolves you must always remember how it started and hold this memory fond, everything starts somewhere.

    The word "we" is inverted to add further emphasis i.e. this picture represents the time when 'you' and 'I' finished and 'we' began.

    Thanks for your help,
