Star Wars brings back memories

One of my most vivid memories of my childhood is playing with my cousins Keith and David.  My sister and I were constantly at their house and I would be so excited to play with with their Star Wars figures.  I remember thinking how cool their collection was.  They had everything.  Of course I had a crush on Luke Skywalker at first, so I always wanted to have him, then a few years later, with a little more maturity at around 10 years old, my crush on Han Solo began.  I think that also began my 20 year crush on Harrison Ford, seriously Indiana Jones and Han Solo were everything I wanted in a husband.  Which is exactly why I married AJ.

So when we were in NYC and AJ was having to go through all of his old toys and get rid of everything.  I wouldn’t let him get rid of his  collection.  It may be just a few figurines, but I’m going to make sure Maggie has some fantastic memories playing make believe with some of my old friends, Luke, Han, and Leia.  Hopefully it won’t be too awkward when we fight over Luke and Han.
