Memories From Summertime 1997

Good afternoon my dears. 

This week, month, year has been fluttering by. Wouldn't you agree?

Today, I thought I'd take you back in time. I recently found this is a picture of my younger sister, Gigi, and me in northern France during our summer holidays in 1997.  The picture is a scanned copy through glass, which the print adhered itself to over the past two decades. 

At that time my Nana who was with us on the trip was 66, my Mum was 36, I was 11, and Gigi was 6. I remember declaring it the best year ever, and for whatever reason, I remember being my happiest self at that time. Cue the photos:

My Mum and Me. 

11 years old and wearing a hairband and jelly shoes. 

We were staying in the countryside on a holiday home site. These were some of other children, Gigi and me got to play with. 

A few weeks after this summer holiday, I started Kenilworth high school, and at the time it felt like everyday was going to be the same. As if time would stand still forever. But as we all know life flutters by, and all we have are treasured and preserved memories. 

I'd love to know, what are some of your favorite childhood summertime memories?

The Parent Trap

Good afternoon my dears,

There's been so many pictures of summer camp on my Facebook news feed. It reminds me of one of my favorite childhood movies, The Parent Trap. I like the 1961 version with Haley Mills, but relate to the 1998 version with Lindsey Lohan, who is the same age as me.
In the 1998 version, the girls have one parent living in the U.S and one parent living in the U.K and their experiences are much like my childhood of traveling between the two parents and the two countries. My dad also looked a lot like Dennis Quaid and my mum looks a lot like the late Natasha Richardson.
Which twin am I more like? Hallie, the hip Californian, or Annie, the proper London miss? And which movie represents a story in your life?
