Philip and I at my mom's wedding!
Click here for this week's column...saying farewell to the Holiday trip....

Dear Friends,

This month has been wonderful, hasn't it? Traveling to Eastern
Europe and England with Philip has been a dream for me. Actually Philip and I talked about going to Prague on our first date 11 years ago.

It was raining that night and Philip arrived at the rental cottage with umbrella in hand, and we walked through the village on our date.

We had dinner at the Back Porch with Amy as our server. I was, as you can imagine, a bit nervous. Well, all girls are nervous on first dates especially when the daughter is the server.

After dinner we sat up and talked in the tree house behind the Village Craftsmen. I had told him I always wanted to go to Prague. With the rain pouring down, Philip leaned over and said, "Now let's go to Prague."

It took us a few years to get there, but time is fluid.

Thank you for following our trip, listening to our tales, watching the videos. (I still have so many to post!!)

I guess it is time to move on to poetry and storytelling and teaching for me.

I appreciate your readership, stay tuned, life is interesting.

As for now, farewell to this wonderful holiday. Enjoy the column. It is a bit serendipitous.

Lou Ann
