Definitely! Fall smells always bring back childhood memories, esp. ones of starting a new schoolRead More year. In Massachusetts, we start school after Labor Day, and by then, it really is starting to feel like fall up there, so fall smells are, to me, the smells of new beginnings, new textbooks to pour over, new opportunities for new friendships, new clothes. And then there is the smell of fried fish that brings me right back to going out to eat with my parents at a restaurant in Massachusetts or New Hampshire, where we often spent Columbus Day weekend by the shore. (Even though I have never liked fish to eat.) And then, there is the smell of strawberry lip gloss. When I was a senior in college, I got a little tin of strawberry lip gloss, and used it...a lot. The tin still exists in my old bureau at my parents' house. When I opened it for the first time in more than a decade last summer, I got a whiff of the 16- and 17-year-old me. Full of ambition and dreams of college life... All from one little tin of mostly used-up, artificially-flavored and -colored strawberry lip gloss. That was quite an unexpected turn into the past for sure!

Thanks for sharing this story, Ellouise! I didn't know about the women's memorial at ArlingtonRead More National Cemetery. My mom's mother was a WAVE (stationed at Bethesda Naval Hospital...and she always said that the cherry blossoms were one of the most beautiful things she'd ever seen...), so I will have to look her up!

Great story, Ellouise! I also loved the magazines at my grandparents' house. They got the New YorkRead More Times, and I loved pulling out the New York Times Magazines from the back copies, esp. the travel issues. I'd take a stack to bed with me, too! And my grandfather had a not-so-secret stash of butterscotch candies and root beer barrels that my brother and I enjoyed raiding.
