holding close

In 2009, i found my tribe. the people who i connect with. the folks that i've felt i've known forever even after just meeting them. from that point forward i started to know and feel what a real friendship is even though we live hundreds or even thousands of miles apart. you know who you are. what a remarkable transition in my life. these women. they are there for me.

funny thing, since that fall and the couple years since.... the meaning of true friendship as really put in perspective those relationships that i've held onto and who i thought were friends. i believe we go through transitions and people move in and out of your life. but i've got to say i know exactly who is in my corner now. and i'm blessed to know you!

Bluebird, you know my deepest dreams.........

(my girl Kolleen told me her fav ryan bingham song is bluebird and if you listen to the lyrics what a beautiful message it holds)    my blue bird can fly as far as I can seeMy bluebird has everything I need
my bluebird knows my deepest desires,my bluebird will catch me just before the fire.
 my bluebird wing can fly above it all,
My bluebird will help me stand and be strong,
my bluebird will never beg upon a knee,
my bluebird knows I need to believe
  You are all my bluebirds, my sweet friends. and i hold you so close to my heart!

  1. oh girlie....i was sitting here feeling rather left behind
    and not getting where i want to be fast enough and then i see this.

    a little gift plopped right into my "woo is me" lap.

    the best medicine evah!

    my stomach does flip flops everytime i remind myself that october is just around the corner.

    thank you for the reminder that each of you are the blessings that i call home.

  3. This brought tears to my eyes and the photos brought me back...to those individuals...to those moments.

    I can relate so closely with what you say about friendship. I have let go some of my friendships that are close in proximity to me because after encountering true friendships I see that what I had around me was bringing me down.

    It is a blessing for me to walk this path with you. To be on this journey along side of you.

    I love you!

  4. I was just wondering if you really know how much you sparkle? How your face and heart shine with love? How your sweet voice makes people smile? You have so many wonderful women in your life cause girl, your love flows deep from your heart and touches so many! Your life and your art proves it! Just can not wait to see all that is before you on your journey.
