Where I'm From

I am from my favorite Strawberry Shortcake packaged cakes from my grandmother and rice krispie cookies from Naw Naw
From Irish Cadbury chocolate and Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food ice cream, only the best

I am from my favorite flower: sunflowers
The fig tree my dad has been growing for years

I am from the birthday mantel and dance parties, freckled face, 
I am from the last to leave a party and craziest grandma in Disney
Suck it up, and do your best, forget the rest

From the North Carolina trip with Mom trying to sing “what would you do for a Klondike bar”
The New York trip where “I like rosemary”
I am from my tiny, green, homemade, jewelry box and family movie nights, preferably horror
Pictures and memories kept in my pink journal, along with my head since I remember the most in my family, the pictures on our family photo circle
I am from my loving family that makes these memories so special and unforgettable

I wrote this from memories of my childhood, and I liked writing this because I enjoy visiting the past.
