As I work my way through a whole box of old photos from my parents, I am often surprised by some little detail in a photo. I recently found a photo of me in my room when I was around 10 years old. I had a pretty typical pre-teen room–full length mirror, cute wall hangings, a cork board, and posters on the wall.
What I immediately noticed, however, in this picture is the poster I have hanging on the door to my closet. It is difficult to see, but it is a poster of two horses–one bay and one grey. I loved horses when I was young, as most girls seem to do at some point, but I never got the opportunity to ride. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I started riding. And just recently I was lucky enough to find a new horse–a grey, just like in the poster. What a wonderful layout this made! I paired the old Polaroid of me in my room with a recent one of me and my horse Stanley. Sometimes dreams do come true!
