Happiest of May Days to you!
I always thought of May Day as a very special holiday. I remember when I was a little girl and hearing stories about my older sister being a May Day Queen when she was a kid. That stuck in my mind as being an extraordinary thing. Like I was part of a royal family.
Maybe even a princess myself!?
Well, on Saturday, I sure did feel like a princess!
After classes at Birdsong, i suggested a walk on the Fairy Berry Trail. I was surprised that so many people agreed to go, usually its not as interesting to the adults as it is to me and to the kids. I love to walk out in the woods.
When we got to the head of the trail, I realized why they were all willing to go with me, they had a REAL surprise waiting!
All along the trail, were bright colored, extra touches! Bird houses, signs, fairies, ribbons tied to branches, whirly gigs, butterflies, and on and on! They went all out decorating the trail and had kept it all hidden from me.
After years of watching home decorating shows and ridiculing the home owners for all spouting the same phrases of "Oh My God" or "Or My Goodness" over and over again at the reveals, I always knew that if I were on one of those shows, I would certainly have something more interesting or creative to say.
But- when the Fairy Berry Trail reveal happened, I said the same old thing. And said it over and over and over. I was so shocked and surprised and pleased, I just said, "Oh My Goodness" again and again!
These Texas and Colorado Peeps were the "surprisers". And what a wonderful surprise it was.
Now I know how the little fairy grand babies feel when they walk out in the woods and see all the hidden treats the fairies have left for them. Its like a treasure hunt to walk along the trail and find new cuteness around each bend.
I owe some big thank yous to the Peeps who decorated the trail, as well as to all the sweet friends who came to spend the weekend and make such special memories for me!
I will be in CA attending Kim's Tiffany event, then meeting Sugarwings and my handsome husband for a couple days at Disney! I've pre-written some blog posts for while I am away, so please stop by.
