I finally got around to finding a good use for my old She-Ra toy shields that I’ve been saving and carting around for the last 15-or-so years. For whatever reason I just could not give these up as I sorted through old childhood things. I never knew what to do with them, they’ve been in storage all this time, but I would never part with them, even as I rid myself of so many other adolescent possessions.
You can also see in the photos a portrait that my son (then 3.5 years-old) drew of his mom, me. (heart) I love it so much, it is easily one of my most cherished things in this world. I plan on framing it one of these days, but until then it will stay on the fridge where I can swoon over it every day.
