Dear Bluebird Fairy Friends,
I hope you're all doing well and enjoying that last bit of summer before we shift into the different energy that school life brings.
I've not written for a bit because I was getting married to my Fairy Prince, Brian Merrill.
Our wedding was a wonderful event on a hill in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Many people played important roles to make it a wonder-filled time for all.
Today, I want to dedicate this blog to a fairy that celebrates a wonderful role that a woman stepped into without even knowing it. The magic in life is that we humans can do this for each other when the conditions are right.
Here she is:
The very last stanza of our wedding happened on Monday night when we'd returned to Burlington after a week on Crystal Lake.
I'd lost the candle the people at the restaurant we'd just eaten at had lit for us when they learned we'd just been married. A woman helped us look for it in the City Market parking lot where it'd fallen out of the car. We couldn't find it but when this woman sincerely and formally gave us her good thoughts about our future marriage she became the Golden Candle.
Keep finding the magic in every encounter with the natural world, with yourself and with others.
Emily and the Bluebird Fairies
