For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped to see there is no way to happiness. happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. ~ Souza

Dear Best Friend,

My besties make my world the best place to be.  I am telling you.  I have so much love and heart for my gals.  Thanks for holding my hand through the dark and having my back.  Thanks for reminding me I am human and for taking great care of my heart and soothing my soul.  Man, the vings is one lucky girl.

Autumn Valentine

V. xo

Tis November...well hello there.

And here we are...Tis November.  With fall almost fallen and winter in the wings... and I thought the summer came and went with fierceness!?  wow.
September slowed somewhat after days of summer revelry and fun but October felt, well, fast and hard.
With October came winds of change for all of those around me, billowing with bitter sweetness and at times some heartbreak hotel.  But alas change AWAYS brings fresh and new beginnings--all in time, my friends.
You cannot see the rainbows without any rains.
I have been twisting and turning, living and laughing each day and can feel the ole body preparing for hibernation.  The sweaters have been dawned and the running tights worn.  Leaving work at 6 or later, no longer in full bright of day, now in twilight on the verge of darkness.  I can smell the seed of winter, putting down its roots and waiting patiently in the wings.  it is only a matter of time.
October brought much needed and anticipated family time which ushered more appreciation and love for what I was born into and lucky enough to just have.  moments at the frac together, living and laughing life away on lobs.  gorgeous moments that I will remember and shall remain in my heart forever.  It allowed for many great times with glorious friends, some killer runs that believe it or not I will cherish in the dark, snowy days of winter.  This month with failure came knowledge and with success came defeat.  Funny how that can happen.  In an instant, October had me pushing personal boundaries I did not even know I had to domineer in a professional and intimate fashion.
Am I excited for all to come?  Of course.  It is the vings after all.  Am I am dreading winter?  perhaps a tad.  I pinky, I heart summer days more then the rest.  but hey, there is ALWAYS fun to be, lessons to be had and new moments to be cherished.  As always, I say bring it on.  The best is only yet to come.
