Re-Living My Childhood ♥ Part 4


Hook, Line, and Sinker...




You may be thinking: What does this have to do with your childhood?
The truth is: Nothing, I just thought it was funny.


But I suppose I can't say nothing, because clearly there's something. This weekend is Opening of Fishing weekend, and as lame as that sounds.... it's not.


The Background

When I was little, my family and I had friends that lived down the street. Every Opening of Fishing weekend they went to Alta Lake in Eastern Washington State. That year we were invited to go along, I think I was 7. This other family has two daughters and a son. The youngest daughter was Hillary, my best friend growing up:


We're still friends :)


And then there was her older brother, who I always thought was cute!


He's my husband :)


So, the moral of the story is that those little things you do as a kid can actually be your future! My husband and I didn't actually start dating until after we were 21 (I had lots of boyfriends first, too!), but having that history is amazing! I have a picture on my desk of Hillary, Hubby, my brother, and I playing on the swingset together in the old neighborhood :)



So, here's to the Ghetto Fabulousness that will be another camping weekend! 'Course now-a-days the campground has a five-star restaurant and cabins with showers, but it's still the tradition that counts, and the fact that I LOVE fishing...

At least cell phones don't work out there, that's rugged enough, right?




I guess I know a thing or two about romance!

I loved this! This is the stuff romance novels should be made of - the unexpected, he was right in front of me the whole time scenerio. (Hugs)Indigo
