Everything is Illuminated...

These were Heidi's earrings that she said she had felt brought her luck
when she needed it.
She passed them on to me to bring
me some luck as well! So sweet!


This week has been incredible, overwhelming, sweet, exciting, transcendant, illuminating...I have been thinking so much about new beginnings and fresh starts.

Last night I met Heidi, blogger extraordinaire, for dinner. Having met via blogging, it was as if we could start in the middle since we knew a little something about each other already. It was interesting to see each other in a new way, to learn about the things our blogs leave out and we sat and shared a meal and talked like old friends for four hours! We laughed a lot and talked about many things, about the power (and addictive nature!) of the blog, about the wonderful connections we've made, about the incredible universes we see created by all of you who blog and what we may be able to give and share through our own blogs. We laughed a lot and celebrated many new beginnings. Heidi is just as warm in person, with that wonderful sense of humor and light and creativity of thought and "faboolosity" of spirit she expresses so sweetly in her daily musings...
Thanks Heidi, for always giving us something to look forward to...a little light and perspective on my everyday...

for heidi...

What a delight :) It's heaven being able to meet fellow blogger friends. You're right, you get to start in the middle and skip the uncomfortable beginning part!

Sending you love this weekend!

XOXO

So much fun meeting other bloggers!

I spoke on the phone to my blogging friend Chelsea for 4 hours last week. Four hours! I haven't spent that much time on the phone since I was 13!
