I've been planning to post today about a sewing project I just completed. But I read this post at Thrifty Décor Chick and it really got me thinking. I'm not going to lie, mince words, or apologize for what I believe, I'm just going to say it. My childhood was better than yours. Ha! Seriously though, I had an idyllic childhood. And here's why I think that. It involved horses and haymows and kittens.
It involved inner tubes and rope swings and tree houses. It included gardening and haying and making maple syrup.
It involved skating on a frozen pond and swimming in rivers. It involved frog races and gathering eggs. It was a close relationship with my rain-bonnet-and-house-coat- wearing-grandmother. It was mountain climbing in the Adirondacks and donning swimsuits to play in a summer rainstorm. It was searching for kittens in the haymow and playing hide and seek on a warm summer night. It was tree climbing and sour wild apples and wild spearmint.
And so I got to thinking, I am brimming with nostalgia, memories, stories that I love sharing. So I'm going to be self-indulgent and start sharing them here. Flashback Fridays perhaps? Come along if you want, but either way I'll be here. ;)
