My Top 5 Rewinds:
1. My hometown all covered in snow!
Fenns is close to my heart. My Dad took my brothers and I on many hikes as kids through the trails of this small mountain in Middlebury, CT.
2. Van Morrison
Tupelo Honey - Van Morrison
This song, along with all of Van's song, were played in my house constantly growing up. I truly believe his voice can ease every problem in the world like a magical Irish mist.
3. My 8 Best Friends
We have been friends since elementary school and any amount of separation is difficult to bear. Although we keep in touch constantly, and two of them are right here in Boston, nothing compares to sitting at our local coffee shop or on one of our couches just simply reminiscing.
My favorite book growing up that my Mom read before I went to sleep. Madeline helped me be less insecure of having a big scar on my stomach after a surgery when I was 3.
5. Climbing Trees
In the house I grew up in, there was a big Maple tree in the front yard that I always climbed. I turned it into a fort and brought snacks (of course), homework, books, or even the phone when it got to that point, up to a certain branch. I drove past my house a few years back to find my tree had been cut down.
Although these times have passed, I think it's good to look back and remember. Plus, there's so many more memories to make in the years ahead! What are some of your fondest childhood memories?
