Life of a Blogger: Best Childhood Memory

Life of a Blogger is a weekly feature hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat.
Every week we talk about a non-bookish topic, so that we get to know each other on a more personal level.

This week's topic: BEST CHILDHOOD MEMORY

I've spent most of my childhood with my grandparents (on mum's side), so I would say that my best childhood memories are with them. Don't get me wrong, my mum has always been a constant presence in my life, very attentive and she surely spent a huge amount of time with me (if she could, she would be here 24/7). Still, she also had to work, hence the inevitable, strong and amazing bond with my grandparents :)

Nevertheless, everyone is a winner because I have a Top 3 including them all, HA!
  1. Dancing with Mum. We had a stereo on a big shelf in the aisle and she used to put some music on, mostly Springsteen—whose music she said she made me listen to since I was in her womb—every day. I can see it like it was yesterday, the two of us laughing and dancing like there was no care in the world. That was priceless, something we both needed and the best feeling ever!
  2. Watching old movies with Grandma. It's not the first time I mention this on my blog, so some of you may have seen this one coming, huh? Yes, it's one of my best memories not only because it's related to my studies, but because it was fun and it got me so damn passionate about dreaming of wonderful stories! Not to mention my very first actors crushes, such as Gene Kelly, Cary Grant...*sigh*
  3. Fishing with Grandpa. Every Summer he would bring me with him on his inflatable boat off to the sea. It was just the two of us for a few hours a day, fishing, talking and sometimes simply being silent and enjoy the magic of the sea. I couldn't have asked for a more genuine time to spend in his company.
You see, I can't give up any of these memories, and I surely wouldn't trade them for anything in the world...
