Sometimes you don’t remember something and then out of nowhere a memory comes back. It happens a lot with Audrey. I get to watch her childhood unfold and sort of relive my own in a sense. Seeing my little girl, legs sticking out from under the full racks, laughing as she instinctively discovers the fun to be had hiding amongst the clothes. That boring store your parents dragged you to becoming a far away land full of hid-aways and mystery.
And just like that, there they are, the memories of my own, flooding right back with vivid detail. Childhood and all its unbridled happiness. It’s a full circle. It’s the best thing I’ve ever known.
