    And now you have done it all. I’m so glad this dream was able to be fulfilled – many props to Amber for soulsister friendship :)

    ROFL – I love the prairie sass – cannot wait to see you rock it out more often.

    You’re such a carefree soul! Love your bonnet:P

    Aww you look so happy-love it! :D And how can you jump so high in boots? :o

    What an amazing experience for you! You are a photographer’s dream! I love these pictures – they’re exactly what I needed to see today.
    Your family is so lucky to read your stories and see your photos too. :)

    Aww you are adorable! This reminds me so much of when I got to go see Green Gables from Anne of Green Gables a few years ago- so many emotions! Glad to see I’m not the only one who gets overwhelmed by boos coming to life :)

    PRAIRIE SASS!
    This was a most perfect day in every way, and I’m so happy to have been a part of it with you. <3 Miss you already!

    The happiness! The friendship! The FEELINGS! The Prairie Sass!

    All of these make me chortle with glee.

    I am actually tingling. The actual fiddle?? Truly?? Oh Hannah, such wonderfulness! And how amazing that they still have the invitation to that party with the orange (and shock :P). All of it is amazing really. Thank goodness for people preserving these things. Much as my heart is in England, I really hope I get to this museum one day – and I’m so thrilled you got there now :)

    I’ve never been to her house nor have I ever seen photos so thanks so much for sharing. That’s a gorgeous home in a beautiful setting. I can’t believe Laura was so small. I think that’s the height Alfie is and he’s seven! She was no bigger than a child yet it didn’t stop creating something so huge! I would love to go on that tour, too – I’m a huge fan and full of admiration xx

    How fun that you went to Laura’s house! I LOVE that stone house. You look so cute in that bonnet! ;)

    Love that you picked yourself up a bonnet! What fun.

    I would love to see the overflowing library. (guess they didn’t let you take photos – sigh) I don’t think I have read her books or barely watched the tv shows but I do love me some literary history and I think I would have loved this place

    No joke this was an awesome road trip, LOL I giggled when I saw your jumping pic ;)

    Wow, this must be wonderful to enter the house of somebody you adore so much and whose books have meant so much to you and accompanied you throughout your childhood! I think it’s a strange feeling of intimacy that bridges time … You feel so close to people when you have a glimpse into the private lives conserves within the things amongst which they have lived.

    I dream of visiting Chopin’s home one day. You know, and see a piano he has played on … :)

    When I was little, we visited the location of the sod house from On the Banks of Plum Creek. I was quite disappointed to discover upon arriving that the sod house had collapsed, and was no longer the magnificent hobbit hole I had pictured.

    Still, pretty cool. I would give one of my small fingers, or two of my toes, to be able to live in a house as pretty as that rock house!

    I love a good random shriek.

    Also, you have killer pins, and I think you may have started a whole new fashionista trend of a “Runway Bonnet” – strike a pose sister, you are rocking that look ;)

    So so happy for you – must have been quite overwhelmingly wonderful…. your love just spills out through these words.

    i haven’t visited your blog in so long and i see THIS, you living my wildest dream! i can’t believe you were really there! and the bonnet suits you beautifully!

  18. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Oh wow I would totally have cried too! And bought the bonnet. Awesome, awesomness!

  19. Catherine

    What a look girl! Channelling your inner Laura all the way! I love it. I couldn’t help wondering what might have happened if Miss Laura appeared at the doorway and called you in for tea.

    I am coming over to visit from Amber’s site – I totally get what you are saying. I’ve been there a couple of times, and I cannot WAIT to visit all of the other homes/museums across the U.S. I’m in the middle of reading the books again to my kids. That’s really fun that the two of you had a road trip together.

  22. Louise

    What a wonderful experience to go to such a shrine to a favourite author. Loving the bonnet BTW.

    Very jealous! I adored and devoured Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books. Manly was my hero :)
