|Personal note card of 'Sempe Dancing in the Park' @ New Yorker|
Artist: Jean-Jacques Sempé
I knew one day it would happen...I just wasn't sure when.
I picked up this card in a shop a few months ago...
thinking that someday...this is how I would feel.
I have been waiting....
so I am not prancing through a garden,
I am not soaking up sunshine and
thankfully, I am not wearing a red vest or that grey onesie
but I do own a pair of lime green garden gloves. :)
I do have a big smile...a giddy one...
One may wonder if I am losing my marbles,
I think my dog does.
If you are like me,
we know that... such is life.
Giddy, crazy, happy, delirious...
mad as a hatter in our own wonderland.
We wouldn't have it any other way.
Tip toe through life?
Couldn't if I tried.
How about you?
On that note....
I mustn't forget to remind you
about my little giveaway.
The Solar Queen is in the yellow dress that she wore
to the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last year.
She has a little solar panel on her purse allowing her
to wave proudly all day long. My Queen stands front and center
on my kitchen windowsill, giving me the royal wave as I wash along.
