1992. aka the year i knew.

first of all, can we just take a minute to enjoy my mom and sister's faces in this photo?
secondly, let's talk about 1992. or rather, what i loved in 1992.

firstly, all of my school supplies were lisa frank.
i loved that woman's work. brightly colored unicorns and house pets and penguins and such. genius.

secondly, i loved movies like home alone, an american tale, the land before time and teen wolf.
yes, i grew up a disney kid but i also watched many don bluth films as well.

and lastly, this was the year i received the complete tales of beatrix potter for my birthdy.
it was beatrix potter (and partly maurice sendak and arnold lobel) that instilled a love for stories in me. i had always loved to read (as we've seen here and here) but it was her stories that made me want to write and since then it has never left me.
therefore, i mark the year 1992 as the year i knew what i wanted to be when i grew up.

happy monday, all.
make it a good one.
