It's funny how...

certain things will joggle your memory. I was grocery shopping this week and while I was on the candy aisle I was looking for a bag of Jolly Ranchers. I've gotten to the point that I like to have a hard piece of candy in the afternoons to help fight off cravings of other sweets. So I'm searching and searching but the only bag I see is GINORMOUS and not to mention $10! I guess they are already getting ready for Halloween or something. I mean seriously who only carries a 3 pound bag of Jolly Ranchers?!?! So I gave up on the Jolly Ranchers and decided to go with something else. I went with Werther's Original.

Oh how that delicious little piece of candy brings back so many wonderful memories of my daddy and me. But I didn't realize how much it would take me back until I opened up that little gold wrapper and put the piece of hard caramel into my mouth. Man was my brain flooded with memories!!! There is nothing like it.

So what about you...is there a piece of candy, a smell, a place, etc. that takes you back to special memories or a specific time?

The Blood Song

My mom told me about this video last night. After I watched it I just had to share it with all of you. This precious little girl is too cute and also very dramatic. Enjoy...
