This evening my mom and I attended the dance recital of some long time family friends. It reminded me of the days I took dance classes (a long, long time ago).
Growing up, there were many things I wanted to be; a teacher, an astronomer, a baker, a detective (a la mary kate and ashley olsen...did anyone else watch those videos?), an artist, a princess, a librarian...
But one dream that has stuck with me is that of a ballerina. As a little girl, nothing was so enchanting or dreamy as the thought of being a ballerina. I can recall countless hours of twirling away in my bedroom, imagining that I was on stage in pointe shoes with a big fluffy tutu (the fluffier, the better).
Secretly, I still wish I could be one.
What did you want to be growing up? What is your dream-alter ego?
p.s. love this so much.
