Would You Be 10 Again?

This past weekend, I took my 10 year old host sister and her best friend to the next town over, Roskilde, a cute bustling town full of cafes and shops. It was the warmest day so far, so we took off our scarves and bought cold sodas. They were giddy with excitement when we stopped in Glitter, Denmark's equivalent of Claire's. I spotted them $12 to buy a "Best Friends" bracelet set, complete with rhinestones and sparkling silver, and watched as they discussed very seriously who should have the "Best" and who should have the "Friend." When we passed a lingerie store, they glanced at me, glanced at each other, and then burst into nervous laughter. By the end of the day, I was having trouble remembering what age I was. It was so refreshing to be around them!

Would you go back to being a 10 year old, or do you like being older?

P.S. This blew my mind.


  1. This is a really sweet little story. Sounds like a fun day. As for me going back to 10 years old? Oh heck no! I'd be 6 and under any day though. (Those pre-teen and teen years were rough for me.)

    PS- I'm so happy that you're a fan of Shlomit Ofir too. I have a necklace of hers and I love it. Did you see that I'm hosting a Giveaway with her? (Only 20 people entered so far, so there's a big chance to win!) Have a look:

  2. Ooh! Thnx for letting me know-- just entered :)
