I’m so happy this is finally coming together! This is a series of posts I dreamed up many, many months ago and I stumbled across it in a notebook and it made me smile so I finally got my ducks in a row and made it happen.
Welcome to When We Were Young, a new series that looks at what bloggers were like in their childhood. Each week, I’ll invite a lovely blogger to share a picture from their childhood (because who doesn’t like that kind of cuteness?) and answer a few questions about what they loved, played, sang and dreamed about as kids. Fun, no?
First up: The wonderful Emily, of From China Village. If you’re not familiar with Emily, let me tell you – she’s a lady making it happen. Her passion for Dublin – and Ireland – really shines through in her honest, insightful posts and has led to a gorgeous e-book filled with day trip ideas and some brilliant posts for Conde Nast Traveler.
But lets rewind a bit, right back to 1985 in fact and that little cutie above. Click through for our Q&A.
What did you love doing? I could spend hours reading. We lived next to the town library, so I had easy access to a constant stream of books. And I could spend ages in my room drawing or painting or making some kind of craft. I loved making things from an early age.
