How many of you have seen the movie “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?
I rented it from the library and it is really good!
I could appreciate it even more since I’ve taken part in ‘The Sisterhood of the Traveling Apron’.
A quote from IMDB, “The movie is based on the young adult book, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, by Anne Brashares. As four best friends spend their first summer apart from one another, they share a magical pair of jeans. Despite being of various shapes and sizes, each one of them fits perfectly into the pants. To keep in touch they pass these pants to each other as well as the adventures they are going through while apart.”
This is a bit of a postscript as to a ‘magical’ experience I had while I had the ‘traveling apron’. I enjoyed bringing it along with me while we visited family but I also had something happen that was totally unexpected.
I found something.
I found something that I have been looking for…
I found my book!
When I was growing up my sister and I each had a big Storybook.
And I kept them.
A few months ago, I asked my sister if she would like to have hers and I sent it on it’s way. Which left me with my book…my pitiful beat up book that I had given my 4 boys to read and enjoy. By the time I realized it was a keepsake…it had no covers, was missing pages at the beginning AND the end and was colored in with crayons! lol So when I started spending time on the computer I realized I could search for my book and find out what the cover was supposed to look like and maybe even find a ‘new’ book.
Last week I was in one of my favorite shops here in NC, New Visions and I reached down on the bottom shelf to look at a Hans Christian Andersen book…
and there was MY BOOK underneath.
“365 Bedtime Stories”
I couldn’t believe my eyes! I paid for it but didn’t even get a bag for it. I carried it out as if it was a fragile treasure.
I’m linking with Nifty Thrifty Tuesday
and Knick of Time Tuesday !
I hope the apron brings everyone that receives it joy…and maybe even a bit of magic!
What do you think?
A little bit of magic?
