spark magic


When I woke up this morning I thought it was all a dream.

For a split second I had to think if Spark really happened. As I laid there half asleep I started playing back moments in my mind...
-The music that sang through our spark street when you walked between the different buildings-- it was so cheerful you couldn't help but have a little skip in your step.
-Meeting so many fabulous ladies... instant friendships!
-Lighting over 100 sparklers around the campfire.
-Seeing my sisters, Ashley & Camille, each walk into my classroom with tears in their eyes because it not only looked but felt magical.
Oh yes, it was all very real.
Lots more photos & details to follow...!

so magical!

By the way, I'm on a mission to create the Ultimate Happy Playlist. Please help me out by letting me know what song instantly makes you happy when you hear it!

I had to skip or dance every time I walked down those cobblestone paths. LOVED the music. It was magical. Is there any way I could get the playlist?
