This year three of our best friends - a mom and two girls - are spending the year in Lynge, Denmark.
The elder daughter, who is the same age as my eldest, is keeping a blog and wrote a post about her sister discovering chestnuts. There, chestnuts are so abundant, she can collect them to her heart's content, picking them from all her neighbor's trees.
I've been dreaming of chestnuts since I read the post. Today, at the market, I grudgingly paid $8.99 for a pound of chestnuts and thought about the photo of her sitting atop Mt. Stella. So, I decided to jot down some ideas about her. Her neighbors call her 'the girl with the yellow bucket.'
