This is me back in 1992 at my first picture day, and first time ever being on a horse. I was really excited then underwhelmed that the horse never moved. Looking back, the darn thing looks stuffed. Something not shown here, but is the other 50% to this memory, is when we were waiting in line for our turns: I was picking buttercups that were around me until I had a little bouquet.

The very first 'different' thought I know of having was wanting the new Little Mermaid Barbie instead of action figures. Being blessed with accepting and loving parents (who I'm sure knew well before I did), they bought me that doll around the time this picture was taken.
This is my favorite picture of me.
It shows me exactly as I was, long before I ever knew.
