A Case Of Nostalgia

February 22, 2008 at 3:01 pm 1 comment



I don’t know if it’s the weather changing, the fresh air creeping it’s way through the windows or the way I woke up this morning, but I am feeling nostalgic.


Of all things, I am listening to 80’s music and Monster Ballads and it’s taking me back to a time in my life where I really felt like me.  My first Love, my crushes, my friends.  I miss those days, but at the same time I’m glad they are behind me as I wouldn’t trade what I have now for the world.


I’m an 80’s girl at heart and I can spend forever listening to the music, because for the most part, it takes me back to the “carefree” days that were mine.  Silly dancing, playing dress-up, laying in the tall grass and simply, just being a kid.


There are days where I wish I could travel back in time just so I can spend the whole afternoon playing outside with my best childhood friends. Riding our bikes around the neighborhood, taking walks, collecting strange objects and turning them into treasures, building forts and so much more.


I just might have to bust out some ABBA like my Mom used to do when she did housework in the summer.  She would have the windows wide open and I could hear the music from down the street, mixed with the smell of Mr. Clean brings back the greatest memories of us cleaning, singing and dancing all throughout the house.


I can’t wait until the day when my boys get a bit older and we can spend all day outside, build forts, climb trees, roll down a hill and laugh so hard that we can’t get up.


Until then, I’m going to dance.
