The Birch Wood Wishes

None of my wishes ever came true, but you’ll never convince me this place wasn’t magical.

            Girl-child was SO EXCITED! We’re going frame shopping this weekend. She wants to hang it in the living room.

    A perfect solution!

      Nearly perfect anyway!

    Seems reasonable!

      Totally! Too bad it didn’t work. Maybe it was one of those “unanswered prayers” type of situations, though, and the magic trees were just doing me a favor.

    LOVE your blog, so sweet and cute. I am the middlest sister too – only us three girls but still lots of good memories!!

      Thank you! Welcome all middlest sisters!

    So sweet! Being the oldest sister, your stories give me perspective. Keep up the great work! :-)

      Thank you! Eldests’ opinions are much respected around here ;)

    It’s always magical when your little sister admits you are the smart one. I’m impressed you are willing to share your magical place with her. Oh, and crayons was a brilliant idea.

    Yes, I don’t think I would have ever admitted my older sister was smart, ever! Would have tried to think of something to outdo the crayons and ended up fighting. ;) There was magic there after all.

      Ah ha! I think you’re right!

    I think this is my favourite Middlest Sister story ever…..or at least, my favourite non-Chrissy story.

    Lovely thoughts and pictures, just in time for fall! The days are getting shorter and that’s got me humbugging, but the trees are starting to turn and that reminds me this is my favorite time of year.

    Hope all is great in your corner of the world.

      Thanks Peg! I’m in a part of the world where I actually, in all seriousness, said, “A cold front is coming through this weekend! High of 81 degrees!” I desperately miss fall and winter. Maybe we can trade for a couple of weeks when we both get too bluesy.
