SPT—I think it would be romantic to . . .

Photobucket
I had to go to the archives for this one


. . . oh gee, I’m blushing even thinking about something for this self-portrait challenge. I daresn’t say. I would have to adopt a pen name.

However, I could share this letter I wrote my sister a few years ago:

Dear Rachel,

The family canoed the Spokane River to Roosevelt Lake. We had two to a canoe—Calvin and I shared one. As we paddled along, Calvin said, “This is romantic.” And it was, he romantically dreamed that he was Lewis or Clark and I was his load of furs; I romantically dreamed that I was in Venice, and he was rowing my gondola. It was great.”

Love, Jane

Funny Jane, funny.

This is from the archives, it's from your 'blonde' days. Am I the only one that noticed? :)

I cracked up imagining you as a pile of furs. And imagining Calvin singing in Venice is just as funny. Love this SP.

Lene said...

I love it....each other's idea of romance coming together. Perfect

yes, sweet! of course, there's always the venetian in las vegas that could stand in for the real thing...in case you need a getaway.

Julie said...

We think canoeing is romantic too.

Sounds like you've both seen too many Anne of Green Gables episodes. But, ah, to be young and daydreaming again....

Ha! (I would also need the too-much-information-protection-program to do some of these SPT challenges this month.) (Not the only reason I've neglected my Tuesdays.)

Hey, I was just reading the 100 things about you... and got SO relieved to know that you didn't read bedtime stories because you were too cross by that time... THANK YOU... I always feel like the worst mom because by end of the day I AM so cross... so it's good to know that I'm not the only one that feels the frustrations of life... and also, I'm new to your blog, maybe I'm not blog lingo saavy, but what is SPT...
