the Ordinary and Magical.
Updated: Jan 3
We have always kept magical creatures as pets in our house. Of course, they don't sell them at the local pet store so instead, we've had to hunt through books and gather them like wildflowers.
Dragons. Unicorns. Gnomes. Fairies. We aren't picky.
This is also how we invented the game 'find the magic'. Sure, it's easy to scavenge for elves or dryads in an enchanted forest, but it's much harder on a city street. Sophia is a master at peering down alleys to spotting footprints left by the rain or spotting a tree knot that has clearly been well-loved by something magical.
We soon went from spotting these creatures to making up stories about them. Have you ever thought you caught a glimpse of magic in a very ordinary place?
