thank you so much for the kindness shown
towards the photo of my girl on The Sartorialist
(there are over 10,000 hearts for the image on Instagram)
such a thrill!
with friends sharing the joy, the experience is ten times more!
ostrich ~ emu farm, where we fed those gangly birds (feisty beasts!) and got to hold four day old 'buddy' a baby emu! heading a little further up the road to solvang, we pretended we were in scandinavia, shopping for clogs and eating danish pastries. then we went blueberry picking and had a contest to see who could pick the biggest one. we'll never know though since we couldn't help eating them. :) our last stop was to classic organic farm and sadie pet the resident pigs, while donkeys and goats looked on (i brought home fresh asparagus from the farm for dinner). it was a good day celebrating sadie, and hannah's time home this week. i've learned there is no better thing, in the whole world, than to have a grown child return home for a visit. :)
i hope you are having a wonderful week, see you soon! xox lori
