Welcome to the new monthly exhibit of the Museum of Me. Thanks to Kym (who has a brand new and amazing blog right here – check it out!)for another great monthly exhibit topic, this month we are showcasing a photo (or in this case photoS) from my childhood that most captures the me of today.
I was looking for a particular photo and couldn’t find it but instead found 3 gems and, when I couldn’t decide which one to choose, I decided to share all 3. I’m a multi-faceted person, after all.
A set up at my Nana’s and I’m playing library, circa 1969 and I’m 4 years old. I played library and school frequently and in this particular photo I appear to be putting on a puppet show for a children’s program. I can still feel that scratchy wool blanket that I’m using as a table cloth. And I love that photo of my brothers hanging behind me.
In my backyard, circa 1974 and I’m 8. My love for spring flowers and gardening started early, too, and his continues to this day. I loved the tulips that came up every year along the fence and would check on them every day to make sure they were thriving. I’m dressed up for my grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary.
Sitting in front of the fire in my childhood home with my first Siamese cat, Simba, circa 1976 and I’m 11. My love for Siamese cats goes back so many years and Simba was such a love. He was a big cat (George reminds me a lot of Simba) and I adored him.
Early signs of who I was going to become. Librarian. Gardener. Cat lover. Constants in my life for sure.
Thanks to Kym for another great monthly exhibit topic.
