There's a beautiful line in the children's book STARS; it reads, "blow a ball of dandelion and you blow a thousand stars into the sky." Or perhaps a thousand wishes?

Spring is in full bloom in Copenhagen, which means we have our fair share of dandelions dotting sidewalks and gardens. Every morning on her way to the kindergarten, my daughter picks a dandelion and blows a wish. And every once in a while I join in the fun. I have sent out some serious wishes out into the universe and I'm hoping they'll come through soon...

Yesterday, I picked a few and got them home. And look where they landed. What do you think?

The next time you're carrying a gift and you chance upon a dandelion, you know what to do. Pick it up and add it your gift (gentle now, they're delicate). Because you know what's better than a gift? A gift wrapped in a wish!
