Childhood Memories

A few weeks ago I was scrounging around in Raymond's bag for some chap stick [gotta keep those lips pretty in this "winter" weather], and while I was smearing it on, I was immediately taken back to my childhood. Something about the classic cherry chap stick takes me back, and makes my heart so happy.

While walking down nostalgia lane, I got to thinking about all of the other random things that send my heart and mind sailing back to my childhood. I'm not sure why these specific things stand out to me, but they must have played some sort of important roll in my life because they all bring back happy memories.
  • Wind Breakers- These were something that we wore growing up and I suppose *fingers crossed* that they were really cool.
  • Cassette Tapes- I find it so odd that our parents lived without computers. One day we will be telling our children that we lived for some time without IPods, or even CDs! The cassette tape is where it was at! [I specifically remember listening to Lyle Lovett over and over again with my dad on long drives]
  • Caramel Apple Pops- These suckers were one of my favorite growing up!

  • Tyson Chicken Nuggets- I feel like we ate these at least once a week for dinner with Kraft macaroni and cheese.
  • Christmas Music- Christmas was, and still is my favorite holiday and time of year. My house was always filled with so much joy and happiness, especially around this time of year so any time I hear Christmas music I think back to my and my mama decorating the tree together with white lights and pearls. Something I'll never forget. [Still one of my all time favorite holiday albums.]

What takes you back to your childhood?

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm
planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

… Unbelievable , but I just found software which can do all hard work promoting your website on complete autopilot - building backlinks and getting your website on top of Google and other search engines 1st pages, so your site finally can get laser targeted qualified traffic, and so you can get lot more visitors for your website.

YEP, that’s right, there’s this little known website which shows you how to get to the top 10 of Google and other search engines guaranteed.

I used it and in just 7 days… got floods of traffic to my site...

…Well check out the incredible results for yourself -

I’m not trying to be rude here, but I believe when you find something that finally works you should share it…

…so that’s what I’m doing today, sharing it with you:

Take care - your friend Jennifer

After getting more than 10000 visitors/day to my website I thought your website also need unstoppable flow of traffic...

Use this BRAND NEW software and get all the traffic for your website you will ever need ...

In testing phase it generated 867,981 visitors and $540,340.

Then another $86,299.13 in 90 days to be exact. That's $958.88 a

And all it took was 10 minutes to set up and run.

But how does it work??

You just configure the system, click the mouse button a few
times, activate the software, copy and paste a few links and
you're done!!

Click the link BELOW as you're about to witness a software that
could be a MAJOR turning point to your success.
