Princess Oceana and I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Summer! I hope you all have wonderful plans to travel all over the country (or hopefully the world!)

I was supposed to fly to Atlanta tomorrow and go to the Red Sox Atlanta game on Saturday with my brother and sister-in-law, but cant fly due to my knee injury. SO......

I would LOVE to hear what YOU guys are doing for your summer vacations. Please share, I would so love to hear all of your adventures!

And for me, I am going to be an armchair traveller going to Venice, Florence, Rome, New Zealand, Montana, Boston and of course to Fenway Park and have wonderful adventures in my sketchbook! :)

Have fun!

Michelle :)

Aww geez. Sorry to hear that you are not able to travel. Hope your knee gets better soon. Do you have a backyard that you can go and relax in? A tree to sit under and meditate? Someplace to relax and hear, feel, and see Mother Nature as she soothes you and allows your Muse to play? I wish these for you.

You are so sweet, yes, my little cozy apartment is my sanctuary every day. I have a beautiful yard filled with banana trees and bird of paradise so its a good place to heal, thank you so much for your kind wishes.

SO Sorry for your knee injury and you have a great attitude for healing. We are very much alike but I ADORE your fairy work, I wish I could draw and I also am an armchair traveler but, I do it in reading great books and watching awesome videos. Also, a little in my head!

You are very talented and I admire you.
May you heal blissfully!
Smiles, cyndi

Michelle said...

Thank you, Cyndi!

I love watching travel shows and videos, too. My mom has alot of travel books at her house so I always love to look at her Ireland and Budhapest books. So much fun!

Thanks for visiting my blog! When I travel it has to be driving. You see I have this little 3 lb. Yorkie monster named Fifi. If I take her on a plane I'll get kicked off! She screams and says something that sounds like "Mama". Speedy recovery to you!

Dearest Michelle,

I'm sorry to hear your still in the wars, I guess indirectly it has made you slow down although it must be extremely fustrating. I must get around to writing you properly. I have no exciting plans for the summer, getting through it with Brett being home full time is gonna take some doing lol! I'll stick with my felting in my peaceful moments try and keep my sanity. Hope to hear from you soon or i'll be in touch.Healing hugs my friend x
