My human, Mia, has been working so hard. She is so inspired by my plan. My plan is to go all over the United States meeting new and wonderful people, to share their stories, and to find the connection between all people. Mia is so wonderful, and I want to meet more wonderful humans like her.

Generosity of others

While we were in South Florida we received a care package from Sassafras Bakery. The owner of this fantastic bakery is an amazing young woman with a heart of gold. AJ, the owner, started her made-from-scratch bakery after 10 successful years as a graphic designer. This woman is chock-full of talent and heart. She free hand designs ordered by customers and she donates back to local charities. The bakery is located in Columbus Ohio, and her prized goods can be found in local coffee shops & other locations too.
She even does wholesale orders.

She sent us brownies & granola bars! Mia of course shared with the friends we were staying with, and we ate on the treats for well over a week. When we started heading north for Alabama, we only had a couple granola bars and brownie left with us. We had a granola bar for breakfast & a brownie with our lunch.

About mid afternoon we stopped to get gas and that is where we met Brandy & Ed. They were sitting near a McDonalds, hanging out and visiting with each other, their sign nonchalantly leaning against Brandy's leg. Mia pulled over to shared our last granola bar and brownie with them. We of course struck up a conversation about where they were traveling from and to. They'd been on the road from over 17 months and had traveled back and forth across the US a couple of times. They seemed to allow the weather, and personal notion determine where they were going next.
Brandy said they were heading to South Florida for warmer weather, I hated to inform her we'd just come from there and it wasn't any better. The whole week we were in Miami it had been in the 40's or 50's and down into the 20's or 30's every night! Brandy & Ed didn't seem put out in the slightest about the weather, they were much more interested in the people and the places they were to see.

What an exciting time! Getting to travel the US meeting new people and seeing all kinds of places (sounds kinda familiar)  :-)

They wrote me a wonderful email &; I wanted to share it:

I really wish we would have had more time to talk with you both today. Thank you so much for the granola bars. They were delicious! Does Taco like them? Our puppy loves them! Please send us a copy of the photo if you can. Your blog is amazing! Blessed journeys to you both. It's beautiful out there sister, and I'm glad you've also choose to see it. If you get a chance to go to any Rainbow Gatherings, I hope to see you. National Gathering is over the 4th of July in Washington this year. I states know people in a few states that can help you along. Safe places to stay, and great things to see. Enjoy yourself. I'm more blessed for meeting you. Keep in touch, please.
