"Laughter is an instant vacation!" ~ Milton Berle
And with that quip, I will attempt to answer the most pressing questions for our etsy bloggers' carnival:
What is the best vacation you've ever had?answer: the one I'm on right now, or the one I just had, or the one I'm about to take.
Of all the places in the world, where would you like to go and why?answer: Oh now, don't get me started! I want to go everywhere! Why? I have an explorer's heart.
Let's start at the beginning. Once, a long (long, long) time ago, I was a small child. My parents packed up the car and took my brother and me to the sea. Oh the sea! to roll in the sand and play in the waves! pure joy! I will always love the sea.
Then I grew up and moved West (west of where I grew up, that is) to Indiana. While on a business trip to Arizona, my husband and I went to the Grand Canyon and points farther west. The Canyon was glorious in the April Spring! Snow was falling from the sky onto our winter coats and then melting part way down the canyon. It was magical and I was hooked. A few years later, and every summer thereafter, we packed up the car and took our kids out West. We camped under the stars, ate sandwiches while standing knee deep in a river, hiked through verdant forests, and EXPLORED! Oh how I love exploring! And it's wonderful blessing to share new experiences with my husband and children.
Where will the path take me? What's around the next bend? What discoveries will be made? What delights will be seen?
This is for the etsy bloggers' carnival which will be published by Handmade By Sandi on Monday, March 1.
