Another Perfect Day

Sometimes I feel as if I live in the most wonderful dream world. A very happy, simple and innocent place. A place where stories and imagination rule the land. Of course, I'm the creator of this land and it truly is a fun place to be.

Please enjoy this video, from one of my most favorite storytellers before you continue with this post.

Another perfect day I had indeed. You see I was honored and thrilled to receive a visit from one of my most treasured blogging/bunny friends and her delightful daughter. Karen and Sarah from Rabbits Eat Quilts in Massachusetts, came to visit us in Bunnyville here in North Carolina.

Sarah                                                         Me                                   Karen

Sarah is an incredible young lady that has overcome many obstacles and has now been offered a job as an Occupational Therapist in North Carolina. Woo hoo! You go girl! She and Karen traveled to North Carolina to find Sarah an apartment and then drove 2 1/2 hours to visit me and the bunnies. How exciting! Can we say "Happy Bunny Dance!!!"

It's truly amazing how blogging and bunnies can bring people together. I always knew I would love to meet Karen in person and she was exactly as I knew she would be. She's kind, caring, smart and fun. She has the most wonderful smile that envelopes you with warmth and friendship. She is an incredible mother, and her joy and pride shines in her eyes as she speaks of her girls.

She is also to Weasley. A sweet old boy that is a true snuggle bunny.

Karen and Sarah came to spend the night with me, David and the bunnies. We shared stories and laughed lots. Of course, I tend to be a little ol' chatter box and I'm sure they were thinking "does this girl ever hush?" hee,hee,hee. However, I did love and treasure every minute with them and when they left, a piece of my heart went with them, as I wished they lived closer to me so we could share some some fun and artistic adventures together.

Karen made me this gorgeous journal and bookmark. I shall write some tales and draw little doodles and think of my dear friend every time I hold it. Thank you so very much Karen. I love it!

It was Another Perfect Day. Please enjoy this final video and the bunnies and I will see you right back here on Wednesday.

Wishing you a Perfect Day.
Michelle, Harrington and Hannah.

You're right. What a perfect day! Glad you had a beautiful weekend, Shell. Handsome and I went to see "Hope Springs" at the theater. It was great!

Jade said...

Jealous! So jealous! Two of my favoritest bunny people get together and I am not there! Heck, Karen only lives about 2 1/2 hours from me and I haven't had a chance to visit her yet!

Seriously, sounds like you guys had an awesome time and I am all kinds of happy that you did--and I can't wait to hear what kind of mischief Weasley got into while his mom was away!

It is indeed a perfect day and it's sunny here in the UK! ;-)
Of course I love Beatrix Potter and the movie is wonderful.
Sorry I have not visited you in blog land for such a long time, but as you know things are a little crazy for me at the moment, what with getting ready to move house.
Lovely to see you looking so well with your dear friends. I like your dark hair, it really suits you!
Have a good week, Shell.
Hugs to you all in Bunnyville.

P.S. The earrings have been posted and I will tag you in a photo on facebook this week! ;-)

Karen M said...

You make me blush, shell! You are everything that you said I am, and we really enjoyed meeting you in person. I agree, it was a perfect day. And Jade, we have to make this happen. Soon!

Good morning beautiful friend and lover of rabbits!

When I see this movie, I cry. I wish the entire world could live in harmony with nature; perhaps there would be no wars and strife between others if we could only see through the eyes of the forest. Everything is perfect, for ME, in this post.

We do try to live a perfect day, don't we dear? You and your lovely quilting, me with my imagination and desire to make something that not I love, but that someone else will like. I have yet to find the latter, but I am trying.

Have another PERFECT DAY! Anita

Bunny people are the best sort of people and the love of these special creatures brings special people together!

That made me so happy! I just love bunny people! I know these blogs are a lot of work, but you talented and just precious people do so much good for so many, just by sharing your lives! So glad the two bunny parent families could meet! That makes it more difficult for those wascally wabbits to put tricks over on you!

Allie said...

How wonderful - and boy am I jealous! Glad you had a great visit, sweetie!
