What smells remind you of childhood?

Absolutely! Any time that I smell lilac, I'm reminded of being at my grandmother's house when I was young. She used to have a lilac-scented perfume that she wore all the time and, when I visited, she would let me use some too.

Smelling chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven reminds me of my childhood, infact it brings back a lot of positive memories for me :). When I was a little girl I would spend a lot of time at my grandmas house (we'd have sleepovers) and we'd always make chocolate chip cookies. I was always so fascinated that she had the recipe memorized...she never once had to look at the book! I also remember how everytime she would turn around, I would swipe my finger through the dough and eat it!! She always thought this was bad because there was raw egg in it, but I would be sneaky and do it anyways! I'm actually pretty lucky that I never got a sore tummy from it, considering how much dough I was sneak hehe.

Honeysuckle and Hedgerow. Those smells were around all summer long. Funny, I now live in the town where I grew up and the smells aren't around much anymore. A lot of the old hedges have been taken out and I guess the honeysuckle went too. I blame it all on those damn yuppies! They ruin everything.
