Smile for the Camera, 19th Edition: Gift

This blog post is my submission to Smile for the Camera, 19th Edition. The word prompt is “Gift.”

In going through my old Christmas photos, I came across a shot of one year’s Christmas tree with a gift underneath that I remember very fondly — my first suitcase. You know you’re growing up when your pjs and toys deserve their own luggage. My first suitcase featured Snoopy in his “Flying Ace” finest.

The suitcase accompanied me across the Atlantic shortly thereafter, when I traveled to England and Ireland with my parents.

About to depart for Dublin, at age 4.
