Maybe it's a quarter-life crisis or maybe it's just nostalgia kicking in. But I find a lot of joy in remembering things from when I was a kid. It's probably one of the reasons why I love Lisa Frank so much - it reminds me of those good days. The days when organizing all your school supplies before the first day of school was a big deal and took hours. I have an entire board on pinterest called Flashback where I collect images that really bring me back.
A lot of it is about the innocence of being a kid. You don't know any better; you don't know all the scary stuff that's really out there. So you're able to just play carelessly and enjoy yourself to the fullest. I'd love to capture that fun every day!
If you're a 90s kid and feel like you're in the mood for some nostalgia, check out this podcast called Mash the 90s, where two 20-something guys unearth those forgotten childhood toys, shows, music, and other pop culture obsessions.
Remembering the past isn't something I want to get consumed over... but I think it's worth it to relive some of those memories just to remember that YES - I am capable of spending an entire day in Barbie land. YES - there was a time when I was content eating Doritos and Mountain Dew every day after school. YES - Beauty and the Beast was an amazing movie and the Wizard of Oz could inspire me every time I watched it.
And these are all good things to remember...
