Day 23

A photo that makes me think of childhood... well, what's IN the photo makes me think of childhood... dolls and swings. I can picture many dolls through my growing up years. I remember a certain birthday (I'll never tell you how which one!) thinking I'm probably to old now to play with dolls. And I really didn't want to be. :) This doll was a special one. One I played with at Grandma's house. She made it and the clothes and there was a little quilt that I'd play with too. After Grandma died a little over a year ago, this doll became mine.
The swing means something too... I loved to swing as high as possible and try to touch the branches with my toes. One time when my dad was pushing me, the chain broke and I remember falling and falling and hitting the ground so hard it knocked the breath out of me. And I remember his strong arms picking me up and making sure I was okay. I think I was more sad about the swing being broke than anything else!

Tomorrow is a photo that has a color scheme. ??
