Childhood Memories

I marvel sometimes at how our minds work.

When I was a little girl, my grandfather on my mother's side was a pharmacist for Albertson's. When we visited them in Texas, we always made at least one visit to grandpa at work, and the bakery would give me a free chocolate chip cookie, every time. I used to love that!

I stopped at Smith's to grab lunch just now, and I smelled something in one of the aisles that took me right back to age 7, heading toward the bakery, thinking about that cookie.

It really is a very sweet memory.. I am a sense memory kind of being as well.. really we all are.. but food and scents of food and fresh-baked goods, in particular, take me all the way back. To excellent moments when I first imagined myself eating the tasty little dreams I could smell wafting the house, and through a nearby bakery when I was growing up. MMmm. yes! Good one!
