An Absolutely Charming Animation by a Fellow Etsy Illustrator

I am smitten with this! Be sure to view artist Julia Pot's illustrations at:

So here are the details on my first crush. His name was James. We were in the same first grade class. We had a pact to always pick one another during the game "Heads Up Seven Up." It was agonizing sitting there with your head face down, cradled in your arms on your desk. Peeking out through the slightest crack between your arm and desk to see if he was going to pick you! He'd walk up and down the rows. Oh the anticipation. Butterflies in the stomatch. I knew his tennis shoes by heart! Then the ever anticipated movement of him folding down my thumb in selection. Dark hair. Kind eyes. I was forever destined to fall in love with kind J's.

I thought I was the only one who remembered playing that game. :) I married a kind J. Lovely post.
