simple. lovely. LIFE.

  When I was a little girl, I can vividly remember being eager to form into a teenager. I thought they hung the moon. The way they talked, dressed, the privileges they were allowed...I simply adored it all. I looked incredibly forward to being able to drive, shop with my friend all by ourselves, wear makeup, walk in high-heeled shoes, wear perfume and long, dangly earrings. To me, being older sounded way more appealing verses being a young earthling. Couldn't time just speed up already?

And now here I am. A teenager. Fifteen years of age. True, being a teenager, you are granted more privileges and such. But at the same time - you miss being young. What happened to those days when if you made a fool of yourself it didn't matter? Remember when just plain old "talking" was boring but playing with your barbies and baby-dolls was the entertaining thing to do? Remember when you cared less if your jeans got dirt stains on them after playing "tag" in the yard?
I look back at those days and can't help but feeling the slightest bit of nostalgia. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and be a free spirited little kid again.

Instead of wishing you could be younger again or rushing time and craving to become older...

Enjoy where you are in life.


  1. I vividly remember those times, too! Just yearning to be in a different place in life...to be allowed more privileges...to be looked upon as one of the "older ones". Now I am and I probably don't take it seriously at times. I dream about future days. But that is such a great reminder! An awesome quote that has been on my mind lately says, "Do not wish away your days dreaming of better ones ahead."

  2. I agree. I do miss being little, and being so carefree. Oh how things have changed. I always tell my little brother and sister, be happy being little; it certainly won't last forever.

  3. Gosh, I totally know what you mean. I've felt this way many times. Love this post!

  6. Oh,to be a kid again,I'm turning another year older soon,and its just plain scary.... To be a care free child yet to have the things I've learned over the years in my brain would be amesome. ;)

  7. Great post Anna Gray! I love these shots. I love that they were running like that on their own accord, not because we staged it. Great moment you caught on camera :)

  8. I soooo agree my friend! I wish I could be six years old again, playing with baby dolls and having a care free life! And ohh...how I don't want to grow up. Guess I can't help that ;)


  9. I totaly agree...sometimes I wish I was a child, for the mere simplicity that life used to be. :)
