Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Flash back in a cup

My usual morning involves a strong cup of Java and a moment or two spent here with you but I decided to change things up a bit this morning. So I lit the Sandalwood incense I recently picked up in a quaint little shop a few miles to the north and poured myself a cup of Yogi Tea, Woman’s Moon Cycle to be exact. There I sat gazing out the window while experiencing the complex aroma of an earthy sandal wood smoke. The tea’s spicy scent reminded me of my youth and a hot bowl of cinnamon oatmeal. It did deliver on the harmony it promised but it was the little something else it provided that I liked most- a flash back to my youth. Perhaps it was the incense and not the tea but never -the- less, it was a fun trip.

I remember 5th grade, my best girl friends and a boy that each wanted to claim as their boyfriend. Quite honestly I didn’t find him anything special (sorry Brent) but just the mere fact that he was wanted by all meant that yes I wanted him too. So the leader of the pack, not me, decided that we should put together a multiple choice love letter which gave him the option to choose his girl.

It went something like this: If you love Sonja check this box, If you love Denise check this box, If you love Junie check this box and so on and so forth. Well this boy was no dummy and wasn’t going to cut out any of his options, so of course he checked every girl’s box- apparently he loved us all 😉  This meant we had to take turns at recess holding hands with this lucky three-timing boy. I wonder if Brent has ever settled for just one woman.

I enjoyed a moment of retro bliss and the memories were special but I still feel a little sleepy and may have to pour myself a stiff cup of Joe after all. Old habits die hard ya know. Have a harmonious weekend.

I sent my party fairy to deliver the invitations. “Hey little one Don’t forget to stop by Deborah, Shell, Renee and Libby’s place.” Oh well she has the guest list.

 It looks like our  the first quest has arrived. Love that skirt. Hmmm, I feel under-dressed. I think I know who those feet belong to.  Renee is that you in those red shoes?

 Funky shoes, crazy legs and a fabulous dog. That has to be Deborah the Mid-life poet. I’d know those legs anywhere.

  Join me  and the rest of the gang for a little cup of tea. Have you seen my rabbit?

  Miss D  is helping herself  to the tea. I noticed that she’s trying to show up the hostess with a designer headpiece. I’m not surprised.

 Hurry up before the cupcakes are gone. We’ll pretend not to notice the little frosting up her nose. It wouldn’t be fitting for a princess to be seen like that.

All it takes is a little sugar before the guests get out of hand.

 Yeah, I went all out for this party and hired the most expensive entertainment. Show tunes anybody?

 I told you there’d be dancing!  Will you look at her over there. Shell  I know you like to dance but not on the piano please.

It’s looks like some of the guests are getting a bit restless. It must be time for a goodbye tour.

Goodbye Libby, goodbye everybody, thanks for coming. Now follow the little garden fairy over to A Fanciful Twist to join the celebration.

I’m sending you with a little cupcake love to share with Miss Vanessa, she inspired this Mad party tailgate. You can’t miss her, she’s the one in the fabulous outfit covered in frosting. I hope her cupcake towers were a success. Come back when you have more time to chat.

Leave a comment and I’ll enter you in a magic fairy giveaway. Can you see her? Oh yeah, that’s right she’s magic.

XO-junie
