|Tilly and Me, Edmonds, WA 2010|
"Age has given me what I have been looking for my entire life - it has given me me. It has provided time and experience and failures and triumphs and time-tested friends who have helped me step into the shape that was waiting for me. I fit into me now. I have an organic life, finally, not necessarily the one people imagined for me, or tried to get me to have. I have the life I longed for. I have become the woman I hardly dared imagine I would be."
Eight years ago I started this blog. The original idea was that Tilly would travel around the globe and I would chronicle her adventures. Great idea, in fact I loved the idea because it made me smile and I love to smile. I love to laugh and comment on the absurd, the silly and the whimsical side of life. During certain periods of my life I can go deep and tend to focus way to much on what I don't like, what I don't want, what happened 100 years ago. I have bright ideas, light ideas, ideas full of fun and joy and then I get submerged in life.
The last post to this blog back in 2010 describes Tilly's travel European adventures when she was packed in a suitcase and traveled with Marj and Jo (my husbands ex-inlaws, sometimes referred to as his outlaws) on their trip to Brugge, Belgium. Cute little thing, clinging to a bottle of beer.

Happy trails and travels. Hop in the backpack Tilly and Mingo!
Here's to hoping more blogs posts to come....
