31 Days:::Bring Me a Unicorn:::Anne Morrow Lindbergh

During the summer of 2006, I was putting the final touches on my wedding...getting ready to marry Chris - this amazing man who loved the girls and I like no one else.  I had just finished grad school.  For once, everything in my life was perfect. 

And I spent that summer (my first summer in two years that I was not a graduate student) reading the diaries and letters of Anne Morrow Lindbergh.  Chris and I lived in a tiny house house - one where you could clean everything in a morning - and I vividly remember laying on the freshly made bed, in the freshly cleaned room with the vacuum marks still intact - the soft glow from the bedside lamp, reading these books.  At some point Chris would come into the room with a hot fudge sundae for me and I remember feeling so loved, so well cared for, as if everything in my life was finally in place. 

I loved reading memoirs and diaries, and especially loved reading these letters and diaries during that time of my life.  And I love remembering, looking back on that time period and having these books so very intricately woven into life.




Hour of Gold, Hour of Lead
