Dancing in the moonlight and market day







I am sure many of you have a little someone in the house that longs to meet a fairy. One of those little magical beings of light that for many years stays close by our home to answer hand written scribbles and place little treasures at that special place outside. My little Livy is one of those waiting just waiting for that special day.. Here she is twirling in the moonlight singing~ Until she eventually tires and falls to sleep with little noodle the poodle.

Then this same little Olivia wakes and readies herself just as enthusiastically for her day at the market...So thrilled to be going out to fill her day with market finds and nice goodies to eat. I do recall my 7Th year being similar. My Mom says's that I just loved life. I do watch this little girl so carefully throughout the day just in case I miss something . I do want to be able to retell stories of her life in detail when she asks me one day...

Another wonderful thing recently is that a dear friend who has a bee farm came to drop off some golden goodness...Honey. So healthy, so delicious. She makes sure that my bottles are the first to be filled. Not heated, not treated . Just the way we like it. So, a happy week for me.

A happy Spring to all over in the Northern Hemisphere~

Oh,goodness, that honey looks so delicious. Your daughter is darling dancing in the moonlight and going to market. I have a 7 year old, too, and he also is a merry little person. Life is good pretty much all the time for him! I love seeing all the smiles of his classmates every morning...all the dimples and sparkling eyes as they act silly and tell one another stories. Yes, let's do remember and cherish each of these days! love, Beth

Now there's a sweet girl going off to market. Yes, I actually know someone who is dying to meet a fairy and builds entire villages for them. Some on the ground and some in the trees. Oh how I love these days of fairy dreaming. Beautiful post and photos Suzanne. Hope all is well and welcome to Autumn. ;) It's so cold here.

I agree with another comment, 'What magical photos' :) It appears like you live in a fairy tale, like you are in 'Neverland'!

And your honey looks wonderful! I could use a heatlhy dose of that right about now ;)

Beth said...

Oh! So magical! I read this post to my own little fairy child last night before bed - she is now more convinced than ever that she and Livy should be best friends <3<3<3
Love,
Beth

Oh My, what an utterly enchanting post... I have a little girl who 'just knows' she'll be invited to a fairy ball one day... she is being very patient but tries to hang out in all the right places... just like the fountain where your Livy is dancing... K would also know that fairies would like that place.
And I also wanted to thank you for a wonderful post on Discovering Waldorf yesterday... your words were so lovely and I know you will help to bring your special magic to lots of children on their birthday this year... Thanks Suzanne.
Blessings and magic,
Donni

What a precious girl, Suzanne. Incredibly beautiful pictures and words. I really love the top picture of Olivia amongst the lavender. Each moment spent with our children is truly magical and simply beyond words in the power of feeling. How we have to hold on to it all, eh - to etch those memories within our beings. You are a blessed and wise mama, dear friend.

I love the photos, so sweet!
Enjoy that honey!!! I'm hoping our bees made it through the winter and will let us share some of their honey come harvest time.

My girls (10 & 7) live for fairies. They're constantly outside under the magnolia tree, making fairy gardens and fairy houses.
We came across some fluffy (and very tiny) flying things once that actually did look like fairies (probably a woolly adelgid or something) and the girls absolutely believe they were fairies.

I just LOVE your blog!! My blog used to be called Over in the Meadow before I changed it that is how I came across your blog. I just think your blog is very beautiful! I will be stopping back!


Warmly,
Tina

PS: up here in Minnesota USA spring feels very far away. We still have lots of snow on the ground.
