Lifelong loves are built in childhood

Funny how my old rig of a body is aging, my brain's sprouting mysterious holes and I'm getting more jaded by the day but lordy, have I changed that much since yonder?
I still love huge piles of snow...

I'm still fiercely independent
and must start every day with toast:

I still love ketchup and tuques:

The smell of fresh warm laundry from the dryer?
Still heavenly!

I still love my mama, more than ever
and always aspire to be as wonderful as she is:

Still love camping...

And I still love horses...
it may have taken 35 years but I finally have my own now!

So... have YOU changed that much? ;-)

I LOVE kid pictures-- you are adorable! What a cute and sweet narrative.

I have a picture of me in kindergarten and I am wearing red shoes, and I still love red shoes. So maybe I am a little the same. :)

These photos are just adorable...you are so cute; then and NOW!
Your Mom is gorgeous too...what a great post.
I have changed a bit, mostly for good. I am still silly and immature, but on the outside:
I no longer look like a homeless and hungry kid with dark circles around my eyes (allergies)
