I mentioned last week that I was going to send brownies to my friend Chris, who is currently hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. He's been out there since the beginning of March, and he has fewer than 900 miles to go. His wife, Amy, went to visit for a couple of days, so I sent a couple of Fairytale Sprite Dozen brownie gifts with her for Chris to share with his hiker buddies.
Sunday morning, I got a text from Amy with this picture of Chris and his box of brownies before he headed back out onto the trail. I've learned from his blog that thru-hikers commonly encounter "trail magic," which Wikipedia tells me is any kind of assistance from strangers through kind actions, gifts, and other forms of encouragement. I know that Chris will share his fudgy chocolate brownies and pass on some trail magic with that extra special Fairytale magic. :)
Good luck Chris, we can't wait to see you again!
