travel thursdays: at the palace

at the palace
a lot has happened since i was at the palace...
like kate and william and george.
i have a son of my own now too
and have been married almost 4 years...
i can't help but think back on what life was like then,
as i traveled through europe and slept in hostels.
we watched les mis while we stayed in london
and i was so incredibly moved that i cried.
we visited museums, ate food, rode the tube.
one day i will return
and stand at the gates of the palace
watching the guards
thinking about a princess who is experiencing
the same things that i am...
a young mother, a new son.
we are more alike than different.
