Love Story...

My daughter, Brandi, travelled from Arizona to England over our Thanksgiving holiday to visit with her boyfriend, Kingsly. They are such a cute couple, and thier story is such a sweet thing.

Brandi and Kingsly met quite by chance while he was here taking pilot training over this past summer. They started hanging out as friends - she meeting his English friends and he meeting her Arizona friends - and before they knew it, their feelings were for much more than friendship. They were practically inseparable until Kingsly had to return to England in September.

I admire my daughter's adventurous spirit, because I don't know that I would have had the fortitude to travel half-way around the world by myself, as she did in November. But, she has always wanted to travel - to England especially, and having a ready-made native guide in Kingsly, this was the perfect opportunity.

Kingsly and Brandi went everywhere they could in the one week she had for her visit. On their way to Devon to meet his parents, they stopped at Stonehenge and a kindly stranger snapped this photo of the two of them. I loved the way this brightly earthy floral paper complimented the greens and grays in the photo.

Of course, Brandi has many more photos of her trip to scrapbook, and she and I are doing it little by little. It will take a while, because she wants the book to express the love and adventure of both this trip and the basis of her relationship with Kingsly. It's so sweet to see young love just starting to blossom.
