i am a true believer that dreams are born on road trips (or while traveling). there is something about that new footing that allows us to dream up fantastic things. of course a road trip to visit a dear friend (and her family) can create just as much magic (and laughter)!
i took the little boys and we had our first road trip together. and what an adventure it was.
long conversations with a treasured girlfriend, strolling through the town in the rain, book fairy business (more on this later), hot chocolates at a cafe, deep discussions about art (and...star wars), chuckles of laughter among children, gnome house building, tea sipping, sewing lessons, and gelato dreaming. truly the ingredients to stir up some magic. and now there is so much to pack in here this last week of summer before i step foot into my classroom to prepare for this upcoming year. so much i want to start and finish and soak up and tuck deep down in my heart.
