  1. Dear Elizabeth,
    I visited your shop last month and loved it. I bought some dresses and bracelets. I love how you are choosing to live, very beautiful. I decided to google “wanderlust” to recommend to a friend. I found your blog, which is very honest and quite similar to what I have been experiencing.
    Thanks for your generosity.

  2. Bitsy– they are with me always ! I loved them then and I love them now. Too many years have passed and they remain the same, loving, brillant, innocent, smart, beautiful, talented, and amazing. A friend recently lost her teenage daughter in a tragic car accident, I wept for her now as a mother who can’t imagine going on without her child. I remember Ann and Katy as the friends that I will forever cherish. I am so proud of you and all that you have accomplished. Not surprised but tremendously proud. Love– MAHA

  3. May the universe continue to put many pillows around you to cushion all that you are carrying in your enormously big heart.

  4. elizabeth, please come back! your blog is amazing. the world needs your words!
