Remember When


I'm going to bet that every one of us has this kind of memory.

Not a care in the world.

No concern that you're sitting next to a boy/girl with little space to spare.

Who cares what your bathing suit looks like (is it riding up, does it make me look fat or my legs scrawny?)

Or that your knees and shins have an entire landscape of bruises.

Or that you're completely filthy and your hair is matted to your head.

You're not even sure where you shoes are or whose yard you left them in.

All you care about is eating that sweet frozen delicacy on a stick.

And having as much FUN as possible.

I want a redo of one of those carefree childhood days.


 Before everything in the entire universe, seemed to matter. *sigh*

I have a photo of my sister and I that looks a lot like this. Except, instead of popsicles, it's a bowl full of blackberries, which are also covering our faces.

Good times.

I love this picture! Sometimes, picture are worth even more than a thousand words--they are worth a thousand feelings!

Well-chosen.

All I can say is YES to this. I want this carefree life too. Sometimes I can feel it, and it's nice.

Your photos are amazing, they capture so much personality and mood, I think they'd make great writing prompts :)
