WEIRDEST dream last night.
the short versions- I was at my grandmothers house, a place I often was growing up. There was a baby version of me walking around. Like a 1 year old me, walking around. Looked just like I did and pictures and videos from my baby days. I knew it was a baby version of me, but no one else was really grasping it and I was SUPER protective of the baby (me). I would not put her, (uh me?) down. Carried the baby everywhere and watched it as it walked around so it wouldn’t fall into corners. I introduced the baby version of me to my dad and he started bawling and held her lovingly.
It was kind of a cute dream- but now I’m trying to see what it all means….

what is really funny to me is that i totally relate to this dream! during wedding planning a lot of old emotions have been coming up and being the center of attention has brought up feelings of being a child and then i have to reconcile those feelings with being an adult. Just this morning I realised I was feeling a sense of nostalgia because the “new” grownup me was coming in contact with the “old” child me in ways that I’ve never felt before.
In a way I feel like having all the family getting together to celebrate hasn’t happend since I was a child, so that might be part of the emotions for me.
Maybe it’s a common thing for brides to be feeling some “growing pains” as we leave the protections of our family affiliations and start a whole new family.
Beautiful dream. Thanks for sharing it!

@coffeekitty~ I’m SO glad you can relate!! Being a bride to be is def. a one of a kind experience!! SO many things to look forward to- so many things to let go of. I what you said about the adult in you coming in contact with the child in you. It’s such an interesting interpretation of the emotions swarming the upcoming months!
Thanks for the reply!
