words to live by

Words that speak to me, especially now.
What a week.


Live your life like the wind.

Speed up when necessary,
And know when to slow down.

Slow down when life pushes so hard and fast,
You cannot consume anymore air.

Slow down when you can't see
Where you're going
Or where you're coming from.

Take time to stop and realize
What you have right in front of you
When you cannot find what you're looking for.

When you cannot find what you want in someone else,
Look inside of yourself.

Don't sweat the small things,
And make the best of the big things.

Cherish the experiences you've had,
And use the lessons you've learned.

Our lives are rubber bands,
Bending and stretching to fit
Even the most awkward situations.

You can adapt to anything,
Regardless of its size or shape.

You just have to realize and use
What you have in your own hands.

All you need is...

Posted by Picasa

LOVE! All you need is LOVE! All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
There's nothing you can know that isn't known.Nothing you can see that isn't shown.

Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.

It's easy.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
All you need is love (all together now)
All you need is love (everybody)
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

Ain't that the truth?!!! <3

sister love

Posted by Picasa

She is an amazing friend, confidant and
just one of my 3 beautiful sisters.

Our babies are 4 months a part and best friends.
I love that her and the boys are in SF, close enough to have beach days and nights filled with wine and laughter about life and now, then and what's to come.

These are cherished times.

...lucky, I'm in love with my best friend...(Friday Gratitude)

I came across this picture of our first trip to the beach (Laguna, CA) together, 'way back in the day'. From this one photo, many memories come flooding back to me of this particular day: hand in hand running and dancing in the sand, skipping rocks, laughing deeply, dreaming, kissing and feeling so blessed.

We are still doing all of that today...and feeling, even more than before, blessed.

It's true....she really is, two.
My sweet girl, is growing so fast.
I am still enjoying every smile,
kissing away each tear,
hugging longer and tighter each time
and treasuring the moments that truly matter.

is the center.
of our world and
matters the most.
