Faerie Memories

faerie field and magical jellybeansMy daughter is 14 now, but every time we drive past the gardens of Minnetrista she lights up. She tells me the story of when her God-parents and their daughter took her to Faeries, Sprites & Lights - she was just 5 or 6 years old at the time. She recalls the faeries grabbing her hand and taking her to dance through the woods with them. She came home with a giant smile and glitter all over her face. She talked a-mile-minute (I guess some things never change). Her God-parents live in Michigan and we only see them at Christmas, but she always retells that story of the dancing with the faeries. I wish I could have seen it! We try to come to the event each year. I love to see the wonder in young children's eyes as they see the magical enchantment unfold in front of them. Even I get caught up in the magical moments, though it embarrasses the kids to see me dance with the faeries! That makes it even more fun!!!
