Josselyn's Crib! Her beautiful Chandelier
Well...working on the nursery has brought up some of my sweet childhood memories ;) I was an avid doll collector growing up! I wish I knew how to explain my passion for dolls as a child lol.

I may have not really enjoyed my dolls as a child lol but the good news is that little Josse has some pretty incredible dolls that she is going to be inheriting and they are full of over 20 years of memories :) It is actually kind of surreal to be passing down my doll collection to my own daughter. From the time I was 6 years old I talked about giving them to my daughter and I even use to imagine what it would be like to be a mom and play with these same dolls with my little girl. Somehow the years have flown by, I have grown up and my role has now changed from a little girl to a mother. I still can not really believe it because sometimes I just close my eyes and I picture myself in Sacramento, California in the little room I grew up in that had blue walls and blue carpet. I can see myself sitting on my pink canopy bed surrounded by all my baby dolls. I remember my mom always peeking in my room and watching me play in my little imaginary world. I am not sure if I am completely ready to become the mother in the story but ready or not here I come...
Here are some of my favorite dolls that Josselyn is going to inherit ;)
