I will never forget being a little girl and just loving Pippi Longstocking...
While I was in Denmark earlier this month, I was informed that the airport I was at was only about an hour and a half away from Villa Villekula, Pippi Longstocking's house...It may be the fact that my kids now have been watching Pippi... but I couldn't help but feel the need to visit this colorful house. Unfortunately I wasn't able to... but what an experience that would have been, a true childhood dream come true :)
I like to think that her independent nature, has stuck with me through the years... I mean who didn't want to be Pippi Longstocking? Owner of not only a horse, but ALSO a monkey... no parents to tell her what to do, and unlimited gold coins to buy all the candy and toys you ever wanted???
Yup... you can see I had big dreams when I was little :)
I still like to think that the independent little girl that admired Pippi so many years ago still resides inside of me :)
I am sure she is still there, perhaps I think she could do with out the monkey though :)
For what ever reason, this caught my eye today... and I am so grateful that it did. I can still remember getting lost in these movies when I was 4 or 5 years old on my grandmothers couch. I know get to watch them with my children, see their independent nature grow through the same movies I watched.
I love it !
