I am from the Warp family Polish nose and Larsen family clear blue eyes.
I am from building forts with friends and little blue dirt bikes.
I am from summers spent in swimming suits and deep dark tan lines.
I am from sticky fingers from cupcake icing and cherry kool-aid mustaches.
I am from ding dong ditch games during late night sleepovers.
I am from party shoes and orange ice cream truck push ups.
I am from grandparents we called Bossy and Papa.
I am from Florida vacations and water skiing at my dad's.
I am from life long friends made in 3rd grade.
I am from strawberry wallpaper that I was convinced smelled like strawberries and trundle beds in tiny rooms.
I am from June picked mulberries and October apple dunking.
I am from the small blue house on Lalonde with the ginormous pool in the backyard.
I am from Kmart brand clothes and buffet lunches after church on Sundays.
I am from the rhubarb sticks covered in sugary goodness and flower beds covered in red lava rock.
I am from uncles dressing up as Santa and a grandpa who called kids peanut.
I am from Lemonade stands and climbing cranberry trees.
From grandparents who called me "the little one" and "missy".
I am from missionary visits and Sunday school lessons about Jesus.
I'm from Chicago's western suburbs and Indiana's far Eastern back roads.
I am from Pepsi in glass bottles and Ragu smothered Spaghetti.
From the day my sister and I grabbed some friends and pulled all of my mom's plants out of the backyard while she was at work so she would buy us a swimming pool.
I am from rows of family photos, carefully labeled with each event, lovingly looked at with each visit to my mom's house.
