Destination II, 12 x 12", collage on board ©2012 Kim Hambric

Thanks everyone for the birthday gift suggestions for my nieces.  Something has been ordered.  (Actually one has shown up and the company neglected to send the second one.  Things must be resolved.)

Hopefully I will see them this weekend.  Typical of people their age, they move often and quickly, so chances are I will miss them.  They no doubt have destinations.  Temporary destinations.  Places to perch for a moment or so.  Bags to pack.  People to see.

I miss those days.  Wondering and planning (a bit) for whatever comes next.  Always on the lookout for the next destination.  Brushing off those pesky roots whenever they begin to emerge.

What to buy a whippersnapper

My brilliant, gorgeous, out-going nieces have just turned 21.  I have NO IDEA what to buy or do for them for their birthday.  We live about 6 hours apart & since they have gone off to college, I don't get to see them often.

I searched for suggestions online and haven't come up with too many inspiring ideas.  And the mere mention of sending them on a vacation makes my eyes roll and my wallet have spasms.

If anyone out there has been through this and can be of help, I would appreciate your sharing ideas with me!!!
