I have a doll sitting on a shelf on my dresser in my bedroom.
I've shown her to a few people, mostly to have them shrug away her importance in my life.
She was the first surprise I remember under the Christmas tree.
She has always had her own unique smell, and was simply beautiful to me.
She has lost a foot (or a leg, depending on how you look at it).
Despite her nearing the Velveteen Rabbit "real" in my heart...she remains inanimate to the rest of the world.
Sweet Natalie, you will always have a special place in my heart.
Do you have anything that is special from your childhood?
I'd love to hear about it.
