Why I Love Giraffes: The Beginning

My fascination with giraffes did not start off with the visit to the local zoo or nature park. It started with a childish giraffe rattle that I somehow fell in love with during my junior year of high school. This is literally an embarrassment, being an 16-year old who cherishes a baby toy.

I chose this giraffe because green was my favorite color during that time. I loved all the little things I could fidget with, the ears, horns, tail, and tracing the giraffe spots. Did I mention that it rattles as well?

Look at the adorable face! This giraffe is smiling. I feel so cheesy saying that, but it was nice to see some intimate object happy no matter the mood.
