PK Hrezo is a native Floridian whose life could easily be a Jimmy Buffet song. She shares her home with her firefighter husband and their two children. When not creating characters and their worlds, PK can be found at her other job of rearranging passenger’s itineraries for a major international airline. The only hobbies she loves more than traveling are reading, writing, and music, and when the four are combined she exists in total bliss.

BLOG FEST QUESTION: If you could walk into Butterman (Time) Travel, where and when would you book your time trip to, and why?

I thought of going to Europe during the Middle Ages. I pondered going to Concord, Massachusetts in 1848 when Louisa May Alcott wrote her first story, hoping I’d bump into her. I even mulled over going to Salem, Massachusetts in 1692 when the Salem Witch trails began. But none of those spoke to me, so I searched my thoughts and finally came up with the perfect answer.

MY ANSWER: I would want to take a time trip to the days before all my life struggles transpired; before all my health issues, before my battle to get a diploma, before my spine surgery at fifteen, before I learned about heartache, bullying, fear, and loneliness.

I would want to go back to the time when I thought washing dishes was fun.

When Jell-o was the best dessert in the world!

When I could stuff my face with food and didn’t care what others thought.

When I smiled as big as I could and didn’t care if I looked like a psycho. :D

When I ate corn like a beaver. And wore the same pink sweater all the time.

When making and eating salad was fun! When I didn’t care I had a dorky hair cut. When I could wear weird dresses and think they were pretty.

When I did karate to the Nutcracker Ballet and didn’t care if my siblings thought I was a nerd. (I’m sure they did.)

When all I needed to entertain myself were my dad’s military gloves.

I would like to witness this time of my life so I can make armor out of my innocence to protect me against my future struggles.

QUESTION: If you could take a time trip where/when would you go? 


PK HREZO said...

Oh Chrys, I LOVE this!! Little you is SO cute! That psycho pic made me laugh out loud. Getting to peek in and our younger selves as children and witness the sheer joy in our lives at that time would be medicine for the soul. Altho, some with challenging childhoods would not agree. Still, I think it's important to get in touch with that child-like wonder we all experienced. When life held so many possibilities.

Thank you SO much for joining in the fun today! Our struggles make us into the people we are, and lend us empathy when others may be in need. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, PK! I'm glad you liked my psycho pic. :P

I definitely understand about having a hard childhood. When I got older, 6+ my childhood changed forever and became something less joyful, which is why I'd like to visit the time before all that when I was around 3 years old.

Our struggles do make us into the people we are today, I wouldn't erase them.

Kelly Hashway said...

I'm so excited to read PK's book! It sounds amazing!

Chrys Fey said...

Me too!!! :D And it really does!

Crystal Collier said...

Mmm. I don't think I'd want to go back and see that awkward little girl, but I wouldn't mind jumping back into her head for a day. Seeing through the eyes of a child is amazing.

Awesome cover, Pk!

Chrys Fey said...

Oh, I was awkward too as a child (more so when I was a pre-teen), but I was blissfully naive about it then. lol

Unknown said...

Does that mean you would go back in time and be that little girl you once were or just watch her....Time travel is so confusing!

Chrys Fey said...

Good question, Siv. I would watch little me and soak up all of her cheer and innocence, because I lost most of it when I got older.

Anonymous said...

Hi, Chrys. What a wonderful time travel trip. Thanks for sharing all the cute pictures. You looked so happy. : ) Thanks for stopping by to check out my time travel destination.

CONGRATS to Pk on her great cover reveal!

Chrys Fey said...

Hi, Susanne! I definitely was a happy child. :D You're welcome, I am having fun visiting everyone and finding out where they'd take their time trip. :)

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Being bullied is no fun. Ill health is corosive to your mind's stability and peace. But your sense of humor survived as did your spirit ... your whole blog attests to that. :-)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Roland! :)

Ashley Chappell said...

That sounds so wonderful! I'd LOVE to visit the burdenless past and just try to remember what it felt like to see absolutely everything as new and wonderful. Very inspiring post! I think PK has given all of us tons to daydream about :-)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Ashley! And thank you for visiting my post!

PK definitely has me daydreaming. With every time trip I read about I envision what it would be like to go there. :)

J.L. Campbell said...

Interesting, Chrys. For most of us, that would be happiest time of our lives, before reality hit along with all the heartaches and pains.

Writing Writerly things said...

Cute, cute, cute pictures! Revisiting childhood would be such an awesome trip. Just to remind us of the simpler things in life, that sometimes we took for granted in our hurry to grow up.

Unknown said...

Great Pics!
There is nothing that can top that time in your life.
I just wouldn't want to see myself, maybe loved ones from afar, so I don't pollute the time line.
I think I am polluted enough!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! :D Revisiting my childhood would definitely impact my life now.

Chrys Fey said...

Exactly! Thank you for commenting, J.L.! :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks! :)

I agree! It's kind of funny because I'd like to see myself and my parents, but not all of my siblings. lol

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

It was obviously a good time - you are grinning ear to ear in almost every photo!

Chrys Fey said...

That's why I said I could smile as big as I could and didn't care if I looked like a psycho. lol ;D

Denise Covey said...

What an original idea, and one that many will share. Washing dishes fun...check! I don't mind washing dishes as it means I actually could afford to eat a nice meal, unlike many in the world today. Thanks Chrys for reminding us of the basics. (And thanks for visiting me. I'm enjoying a look around your blog.)


Tina said...

What adorable pictures! Really great idea about making that armor...

Michael Di Gesu said...

Chrys.... that was really touching. It brought a tear to my eye.... How innocent and happy those times were ... so sad life's trials and tribulations steal those moments away from us so quickly...

Elizabeth Seckman said...

How sweet and sad at the same time. I miss those days of innocence too. We take much for granted (like health) and worry about the silliest things. Thanks for the reminder. I think you made a wise choice.

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Denise! Washing dishes is the one chore I wish I didn't have to do now. lol

I'm happy my post reminded everyone of the things they take for granted. :)

I also checked out your blogs and I am very interested in your Write . . . Edit . . . Publish monthly blog hop. I signed up for emails and I look forward to participating in the future! :D

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Tina! :)

Chrys Fey said...

I'm honored that my post made such an impact on you, Michael. Thank you very much for your comment! It reaffirmed the purpose of my post.

Chrys Fey said...

It is bittersweet, but looking back on those times makes it sweeter. You're welcome for the reminder. I'm glad I was able to impact many people with my post. :)

Mark Koopmans said...

Aloha Chrys,

I think your time trip would be awesome.

Your smile is definitely the theme in all the pics and I hope, now you're a wee bit older, that the radiant smile pops in for a laugh every now and then:)

Chrys Fey said...

Yes, I have been known to smile like that still. :D

Thank you for your comment, Mark.

Tammy Theriault said...

oh my gosh you were a cutie!! i also remember when it was a PLEASURE to get to finally be asked to do the, times have changed! thanks for coming to my blog for the hop! newest follower, hi!!

Chrys Fey said...

Hi, Tammy! Thank you for following my blog. I'm now following yours too. :) I used to LOVE helping my mom wash the dishes when I was little. Now it's the one chore I wish I didn't have to do every day. I really need a dish washer! lol
