This past weekend our men had a trip to make that would keep them gone most of the day so I decided to make it special for my maiden and I. I'm so glad I forced my self to take a two hour break from "doing" and just be still with my maiden!
We had a tea party and I really actually did not move off of the blanket for two hours. It was delightful. We braided our hair, collected our tea cups and molasses cookies and headed out to the field. We also brought along some books. We talked of all kinds of things. I even think we both fell asleep for a little snooze in the warm sun. This day will be a cherished memory for both of us.
