From the time I was about five I had visions of being a horse breeder. I read all sorts of books like Pony Pals and Saddle Club and Thoroughbred. My five year old self had all these plans. Like cleaning out the garage of my parents house in Long Beach, CA and getting a pony to live there. Somehow my parents did not go for this brilliant plan. Flash forward 10 years and at fifteen I still wanted that. I even wanted to go the University of Kentucky!
Some point not too far after that it must have faded because I changed to majoring (temporarily) in child psychology and then dabbled in photography and culinary and finally settled on nursing. I haven't become one yet but I would still like to one day.
I wasn't one of those little girls who daydreamed on the perfect wedding.... which is probably good since I haven't made it to the wedding part yet haha :). I did always want to be a mommy so at least that part has come true. Sooner than expected but surprises are exciting!
All in all, I would say there is no "measuring up" from then to now. I love where I am and I wouldn't change it for anything.
