(Fun pockets for tags!)
So the other day as I was showing a friend my All About Me Printer Tray her daughter was there. She was attracted to the same thing I was...the Eiffel Tower. This has been a dream of mine FOREVER. I don't know if it is the romantic in me or the want to see history up close and personal, but it has always drawn me in. When Marlee got excited about the tower as well it took me back in time. You know, when you are a little girl and anything and everything is possible. When you make lists of things you want to do some day and there is NO doubt in your mind that you will do each and everyone of those goals you have written down. Now those lists have become even more important to me as I get older. I see how I have lived this wonderful life that has been a journey. Maybe not the journey that many people would have taken, but the one that I would not have changed for the world. But as woman many times we have a list that we set aside and forget about because there are so many other things that come up in life. I get it, I know how one day life is grand and the next the wind is taken out of your sails and a new mountain to climb has popped up in front of you. I know of which I speak, BELIEVE ME! But what if as grown woman we still dreamed. And what if we shared those dreams with our friends and our children. It could spread like wild fire. Being able to dream keeps hope alive and makes us work for something. I know sometimes things happen in life that take the path of a future as we have seen it for a very long time and changes it. But with life and dreams if you hold on to your base and your sense of self you can always jump from one path to another and find the road that takes you to your dream tower. So Marlee, thank you for inspiring me to create this little backpack for a trip to Europe, because if we all take those little girl dreams with us we will never forget who we truly are!
