Introduction to a Fairytale

Once upon a time, in a land called Willows, Princess Corey returned to her home from a land far away across the sea. But after 7 weeks, she yearned for her beloved prince who had remained home to attend to the duties of the kingdom.

The Princess loved being at home with her parents in the kingdom of her youth as did her children but time needed to slow down a bit so she could take a breath from all of her duties as princess of the kingdom.

So, she gathered her friends from near and far and a great party was celebrated with a special guest of honor, her fairy godmother. Godmother Mary was a magical woman who lived in a house filled with treasures stacked to the ceiling. Princess Corey knew there was one person, Elfin Annie, who would love beyond all things, the opportunity of seeing her Godmother's treasures

But more than that, Princess Corey knew that Annie would like to meet the star in her friendship crown, Stella Shelley.

Making haste, she summoned Elfin Annie and in a wave of her hand, whisked her through a secret garden and into the Land of Willows.

And the Princess and her friends had a wonderful time. Too soon Elfin Annie had to get back into her carriage to go home, because she lived so far away; but they knew that friends would be friends no matter the distance that separated them.

The photo looks like where I'd like to go for my "happy place." Amazing to me that such a place really exists. Beauty and kindness are cool.

Its not a tale! It happened!
Didn't it?

AnnieElf said...

Yes, it really happened but to tell the story and yet not trample all over privacy, I'm turning it somewhat into a fairytale. In poetry they call it "lying your way to the truth", a not so fancy way of saying "poetic license". LOL
