5 Sense Memories

Have you ever been somewhere, minding your own business, and out of no where you smell a faint smell, hear a certain sound, or see something familiar, and BAM you are taken to another place?  Something so small can jog a memory and bring it back to life in an instant.  This happens to me…not all the time, but when it does it sure is strong!

My Top 10 Five Sense Memories

  1. Baby Powder Scentsy Wax.  You know the popular flame-less candles that melt wax over a ligthbulb and send off a pleasant smell?  Mine no longer include Baby Powder wax.  I was preggo and having trouble with kidney stones, so one of my teacher friends bought me a baby powder scentsy to remind me of the great thing that was coming.  Well, now when I smell that all I can think of is feeling like I am going to throw up because I am 8 weeks pregnant and nauseous.
  2. Garlic Rolls from The Common Grill.  This rolls are to DIE for!  They are from a local restaurant and they are oh so yummy.  A family member brought them to a function when I was, you guessed it, 8 weeks pregnant and nauseous.  Common Grill rolls will never be the same.
  3. Custard Pastries. I traveled with my family to England when I was in 5th grade.  I tried a custard pastry and about gagged.  It took me a good 15 years to be able to see them again with out throwing up in my mouth a bit.
  4. OK, I’m noticing my list is about feeling like I am going to throw up…not what I intended.
  5. Men’s aftershave.  I can’t describe the smell, and I don’t know what brand of aftershave it is, but when I smell it I can also smell my Grandpa.  After he would leave our house from a visit, I would run to the lazy boy recliner and sniff the back of the headrest.  Grandpa smelled good :) AND at 94 he still smells good!
  6. Silky things.  This is weird, but anything silky reminds me of my blanket that I had as a small girl.  I would rub the silky part between my fingers for hours.  I would be lying if I said the inside of my jackets hanging in the closet are not silky…
  7. Campfire.  This is probably a big one for lots of people…but I ALWAYS get the urge to camp when I smell one of those.  Get me a tent or a pop up and I’m there.
  8. Long Island Ice Tea.  Ummm gross.  All I need to say is “21st birthday”.
  9. Green leaves.  Any time I am under a tree and look up I remember the maple trees in my backyard growing up.  I loved laying underneath them and looking up.  The simplicity of childhood.
  10. Johnson’s baby lotion.  Best smell of all because it reminds me of my little guy, especially right after a bath…sigh….

What memories of yours are brought back by a smell, sound, or sight?
