Go fly a kite! ♥

YAY - it's Friday!

We made it through the week, friends!
For us, the weekend is as massively crazy busy as this week has been ~
but sometimes weekends are like that :)

Wednesday was National Kite Day ♥

I just smiled when I heard that as it brings back wonderfully happy memories.
My dad would make homemade kites with my brother and I 
out of tree branches that had fallen in our yard
and sheets of newspaper and twine.
We'd clap and squeal and get so excited to see them lift off the ground.
In hindsight, I'm sure they didn't really fly that well but in my head,
I remember them reaching the moon!

Here is the inside - plain but ready for the message :)


The next time I use this stamp, I think I'll make Charlie Brown's
 kite out of newsprint, too :)
I'm going to send it to my brother - now in Germany -
and see if he picks up the kite flying adventure memories, too ;)

Wishing you a fabulous weekend,
whatever it is you are out there doing!

Big hugs, bigger blessings
