Journey on little compass point . . .
The first recipient of my bracelet I first met in Holbrook, Arizona off Route 66, literally on the side of the road. Anya is the daughter of Mark and Tiffany and brother to Jack. My daughter and I were making the cross-country road trip from California to Syracuse, New York for her first year of university. Two years ago, we spent Christmas at this family’s warm, cozy home in the south of England. They have become the dearest of friends ~ priceless gems, that make me laugh, cry and love to such depths.
When they told me they would be coming to the states because they are touring universities, I didn’t think twice about booking a flight to join them. The nearest city was Raleigh, North Carolina. Only a day and a half to spent, I relished every moment with mum and my “adopted niece”.
Naturally, the bracelet must travel back to the UK with her. The journey begins . . .
