After years of adventuring and exploring and hiking in Colorado, Arielle and Wolf Dancer have finally moved back to the Promised Land aka Indianapolis. I'm more than elated to have one of my best friends so close. They moved into their house in the last few days and Ellyn and I got to check it out tonight. We showed up with a house warming gift, got the full tour and laughed and told stories around the kitchen table. Life is better together.
Top 10 Memories with Arielle:
1. Co-owing the Camp Cookie Company-- we made and sold cookies to camp families out of our wagon
2. After the Optimist Challenge was built Arielle and I would meet their after school and I would make her race me over and over again

5. Showing up at her door in Colorado with Smoon and Ellyn
6. Creating an activity for our Blazer girls that was inspired by the horcruxes from Harry Potter where we hid icecream sundae supplies all over camp for our girls to find
