Nostalgic Travel Moment

Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Bless my homeland forever.

One of my favorite movies of all time is Sound of Music. I will never tire of it.  Many years ago when my family was in Austria we were able to visit several of the sites where the movie was shot and learn some about the actual von Trapp family. I even made it home with a small package of Edelweiss seeds.

The simple little song by Rogers and Hammerstein just played on the Pandora lullaby station I have playing as Jackson and I rest. Takes me back to the breathtaking Austrian mountains.
