Silver Lining: Wheat Fields and Writing

April 25, 2011

Wheat Fields and Writing

Canada was so great.

It was all golden wheat fields and Tiffany skies. It was serene and small-town. It was close-knit and caring. It was fresh air and farms.

In Canada, everyone I met had hearts as big as those azure skies. Not only did they offer to house us scraggly college kids, but they gave us the best bedrooms in the house and cooked us hot breakfasts. Not only did they offer the Bennett and Blackwell families to help with the wedding, but they came the day before to set up for hours, and stayed late after the party until everything was put away and cleaned. They all took time to get to know Sam and I and our story.

And of course, the best part was that I got to be with my Sam all day, every day, except for 5 hours a night (some things are much more important than getting a good night's sleep).


In a separate note, the Utah Children's Writers blog does a 30 Days, 30 Stories project each April in which one author a day posts a sample of their work. I was the guest author today. Check it out here if you're interested.

Happy Monday everyone.

  1. Glad you had a fun trip. If you two can survive a road trip to Canada together, you're marriage will be a piece of cake! :)


    We'll talk later...
