weekends spent dancing in the woods
my family thinks i'm strange
but they've come to accept it
i got lost dancing
and when i stopped spinning and the world went still
i noticed a handsome boy through the trees
alone himself, watching
i ran away

and caught myself smiling

i am trying to figure it all out

i have been busy writing letters to lovely girls
and reading with a hunger that never seems to fade

i'm not taking things so seriously anymore
i highly suggest it
take a step back
and notice you are breathing

do what makes your heart happy
and steal a few kisses along the way

oh sara! first I fell inlove with your photos, and now I love what you wrote. I hope you keep dancing in the woods, the same woods, and maybe the boy will come back. probably he thinks you're a fay, a dancing dryad. best wishes my dearest!
love, Clara

This place looks so enchanting! I can see why it would make you dance, dear. It makes me long for days spent far, far away from my city.

Oh, your hair is so beautiful! This was such a lovely, happy post.. it made me smile.

Clara said...

I've driven through Canada twice and the parts I've seen have looked alot like Alaska. And you know, someday you must come vist me here in Fairbanks! I would love to show you all of my favorite places, we'd have so much fun dancing it the woods together. And yes! the Jam tutorial will come soon, we haven't gotten our blueberries here yet either, But I'll post the recipe for both jams, blueberry and rose petal.
Love, Clara

PS: I've sometimes wished Alaska was apart of Canada too! :) <3

Hi Sara,

This is so lovely. c:
Your such an inspiration,
thanks for sharing.

Megan said...

Dearest Sara,
You are beyong lovely, in these photographs you look like a beautiful woodland nymph. With you're mermaid hair, and dressed in white you look so otherworldy.
It sounds to me as though you begiled that young man with your dancing Sara. As others have said, go back and dance, he might be there again soon.
It all sounds like a fairytale to me - perhaps this is the start of what you have been looking for?
The 'writing letters to lovely girls' has made me all silly and smily. I look forward to your letter. x

Violet said...

Oh my goodness. Sara you are so lovely.
I would leap through flaming hoops for your hair, I would I would. I may get burnt but it will be worth it.

Clara said...

oh goodness, third comment! :) so I waited to reply because I needed to finish another post in which I left you an award! so I could tell you about that and respond at the same time. I'm so sorry your mother's rose bush died! that's so sad. Do you have wild roses where you live? I know parts of canada are similar to my part of alaska, so if you did have them those would be fine because there the same as what I used. and actually once I saw that bright star was on your profile I just knew I had to watch it. :) and I'm very glad I did! hope your well!

Love, Clara
