I remember when I was little, I was such an imaginative person. I wrote a book I never published called "Nossisa Spice". My entire family knows the story of an orphan yadda yadda yadda. And they tease me about it from time to time.It was like a 'Malory Towers' book mixed with 'Maltida'. You know what else I did when I was little? I played outside all the time. I cooked with 'leaves' around my house and used 'dark sand' as 'Maggi' and 'white sand' as 'Salt'. If I was lucky, I found some 'red sand' to be my 'Pepper'. I smile when I think about it because it was so awesome and when my friends were over they'd join in. I don't recall "the twin' joining in this though. I doubt it was her thing. lol
It saddens me a bit when I see the course the world has run. My baby sister doesn't even WANT to be outside. She'd rather play Wii or watch TV and listen to her iPod or maybe play her Nintendo DS. She writes though...Which I love. But I just can't believe how different the younger generation is. My brother had a Sega Game Console when we were young but we'd play it every OTHER time. Most times, we rode our bicycles, or played soccer. Let's say we were ONE with nature. With technology, the kids don't even have a chance to experience Mother Nature. And talk to her and understand what she's saying. My fear is that she won't care too much for the younger generation because hey! they never checked up on her.
This is why I love that the family makes us take trips to the Village. Even though all the technology is STILL there. The urge to be outside is much greater and always wins. From running away from masquerades to trying to hit some oranges down from a tree to chasing chickens around the house to sitting under trees and playing on swings and slides.
What can I say? I'm in love with tradition, nature and being free-spirited. My fear is that MY kids may think that's 'old school' and it's ridiculously disturbing.
And ahem..Did I mention i got a Michael Kors watch for Valentine's day! Totally unexpected and my first watch in my adult life. I'm so happy. I thought I was going to beat tje boyfriend by getting us a spa trip...I guess I was wrong... oh well good things come to those who wait!
So these shoes I'm rocking just to spite my sister. They're from Le Chateau and somehow my sister HATES it. She think it's ugly and so I don't wear it too often! What do you guys think? It might be my favourite pair of shoes.....
I pulled an MJ stunt. haha! You know I need my moves.....Don't laugh....
Have a beautiful weekend loves!
