dandelion wine + a giveaway of sorts
"It was a quiet morning, the town covered over with darkness and at ease in bed. Summer gathered in the weather, the wind had the proper touch, the breathing of the world was long and warm and slow. You had only to rise, lean from your window, and know that this indeed was the first real time of freedom and living, this was the first morning of summer."
Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine is my favorite book of all time. Brilliantly written, incredibly sweet, and full of celebrations of everyday life; it is the epitome of childhood summer. It always seems to find me just as summer starts to slip away, and it has finally made it's way to my bedside table.
There are always a few copies I've "rescued" from thrift shops + garage sales stacked on my shelves, and I would love to send them to good homes. Would you like a copy? Leave a comment here, and I'll randomly draw two names on Thursday evening and post the lucky recipients on Friday morning. I'll drop them in the mail Saturday, all packaged up nice + sweet, with a few summery surprises tucked in too.
Thank you for your kind words + the support you've shown me and this funny little space that I love so much. xoxoxo
