she read, she saw...

This is my weekly Friday feature. I send my daughter, who is finishing up her third year of law school in Seattle, WA, a photograph I took and she picks a quote to go with it.  So the image is something I photographed that touched me and the words are something she read that touched her. Hopefully, both pieces will be a bit more inspiring as a result...

Image info: Took this one along the Grand Canal in China last month.


A BIG WARM THANK YOU HUG TO ALL OUR VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES!

I am an arm chair traveler, but not for long. I am getting off my blogger butt and going to Paris with my girls!! I'll be sending photos. Meanwhile, I have been marching through High Point, so take a peek.
Best,

such a dreamy picture, and perfect for that quote. i agree, a world with a little mystery is always more enchanting than one without. what a sweet tradition to send these to your daughter:) i'm sure she loves getting them!
