"If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older."
~ Tom Stoppard
When I was a kid, I was awesome. Actually, I'm hoping that description is still applicable now as well. I kinda looked like a boy, but thats ok, I feel it just added to my effervescent charm and general overall coolness.
I collected rocks and sold them at garage sales, I hated wearing jeans, I tried to drink the juice out of solid fruit with a straw, I LOVED Macaroni and Cheese, I rode around on a Big Wheels and gathered a treasure trove of items to store underneath the cool flip open seat, I was a hairdresser, my favorite show was Sharon, Lois and Bram, and I loved listening to Bon Jovi and Guns N' Roses. I even fought crime with the Lebanon, New Hampshire Police! I was a busy kid, a funny kid, and a generally weird kid. Luckily, not much has changed, at least with the "weird" description.
I came across a couple pictures of me when I was about 4 or 5 and decided they were so excellent that i had to share them with you! I wonder if the tiny "me" in these pictures had any inkling that one day I'd be playing with fire and metal as my job? Or that my life would be almost completely controlled by a silly website called Etsy?
Life was a lot simpler when all I had to do was fight crime, make fresh orange juice and collect rocks to pay the rent :)
