Day 22 – What is your most beloved childhood memory? What memories are you trying to create (or will you try to create) for your child(ren)?
My favorite thing from childhood was the independence I had when it came to playing outdoors. We had a massive amount of outdoor space and we roamed freely…until dark. There was no fear that we might get run over because we were playing in the street…or that someone might take us. This is one thing I miss for Loren…Southern California is a concrete jungle with fab weather! Southern Mississippi is a vast open area…with mosquitoes the size of your head and a heat index that could scare the devil himself! I suppose everything is a trade off.
We already make an effort to create traditions. Melissa and I had very different childhoods but making Loren’s memorable has always been a top priority!
