g ::


is for Garden Valley, Idaho, the idealic little mountain town where I grew up. It was, when we lived there, a very small community where everyone knew each other. Our home was a cabin on Alder Creek Road, and we spent our days playing in the creek ("crick"), picking wild strawberries and roaming the woods. In my mind it was and will forever be paradise.

g :: is for Ms. Gunn, my first grade teacher who (along with my mom) taught me to love to read and played guitar and sang songs like "What Do You Do With a Drunken Sailor" to her spell-bound (not to mention deeply concerned) 7 year old students.

g :: is for Game Warden, which was my dad's profession and passion. He taught me everything I know about birds, animals, plants and trees. It's also for those dorky Green pants he wore every day of his life, uniform or not. : )

g :: is for Gilligan's Island, my favorite childhood show. I was a latch-key kid and would come home, settle down a foot from the tv with a box of Fruit Loops and glass of Fruit Punch and would proceed to eat and drink my way into a sugar coma by dinner time. Every single day.

g :: is for Grapefruit and Geranium, my two favorite scents. Grapefruit soap and Geranium lotion are my daily staples.

g :: is for Gypsy, the coolest cruiser ever, Gifted to me by the coolest Guy ever. http://www.electrabike.com/06_new/flash_index.html

g :: is for Greta, what I wish I'd named my daughter.

g :: is for Girl, which I am so glad I have. Tonight when we got home, Anna decided that I needed a pedicure, a leg massage and back rub. I'm sorry, but boys just don't think that way.

g :: is for Guinness. My favorite beer, the only beer I drink, really.

g :: is for Grateful. I am so unbelievably lucky; my life is rich in ways I couldn't have imagined a few years ago.

g :: is for Good Night....

Wow, what wonderful childhood memories! I lived in Idaho for years (went to college there) and know how beautiful some parts of it are.

My childhood was similar, growing up next to a river in Oregon with wildlife everywhere and a Grandfather that taught me so much about the great outdoors. I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Oh, also, I remember most afternoons after school sitting in front of 'Gilligan's Island' gorging myself, too... Pretty healthy, huh?!
