"the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found the way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

sissy's bday.....

happy birthday to the BESTEST of sissykins i know!
there is really nothing like her.
like the sounds of her laughter and the tone of her voice and the things she teaches me
in the quietest, smallest moments. 
From thousands of miles away, she reminds me that new life always follows death.
she pops up in my life like dandelions.

and if sara stroupe were a cupcake, she would be a pink lemonade one. 

i voted. team harral.

pannie and heffer are married! 
i love these two. i am blessed by these two.
words will never do.  
what a sweet sweet sweet simple perfect night. 

not to mention....i got to see my favorites from the good ole' days. 
i miss you all like i miss that really long brunch and car ambush on friday night. 
here's to next time. 

the heart of life is good.


you are the high in my noon. 
the flap in my jack. the jelly in my bean. 
the hop in my scotch. the fortune in my cookie.
the grand in my canyon. the bees in my knees. 
the zig in my zag.  the rock in my roll. 
the fox in my trot. the pow in my wow. 
the gee in my whizzzzzz !

reminder of mom.

my moo. how much i laugh at your strange ways.

strange ways. 
chocolate is probably the best strange way i know.
