  1. Love the quote from the Betsy-Tacy book…one of my favorite children’s series!

  2. Thank you for the Betsy-Tacy quote. I adore everything by Maud Hart Lovelace and it always makes me sad that more people aren’t familiar with her books! I think they should be staples of childhood reading, like Little House on the Prairie.

  3. I also love the quote…so poetic, beautiful, and redolent with memories of days that should last forever!
