I'm sitting here watching the blinking cursor. It's indicative in many ways of the way I'm feeling right now. Feeling like life is an empty document - waiting to be filled with the words and paragraphs of my new life.
But that's not what tonight's blog is about. Tonight's blog is about three of the most genuine, funny, talented, tough and tender hearted gals I've ever had the pleasure to keep company with. It's going to be downright impossible to put my thoughts into any type of cohesive form - but we'll give it a go.
My pictures are all willy nilly and mixed up (much like my heart right now - but again - this isn't my whiny post about life's recent changes - you will have the pleasure of that drivel soon!)
Shannan of Flower Patch Farmgirl fame pulled into my driveway in early July of 2010 and pulled into my life and heart forever. We'd been commenting back and forth on each other's blogs for about a year, and then started emailing, and the rest is history. Going to her house felt like going home. Visiting kinfolk. She's just a seed spit away from me, and for this - I'm gladder than glad. I'll be back there soon! Cory is an absolute dream. What a wonderful father. It don't get no betta. It was all I could do not to steal all of her children. Calvin and Ruby entertained me to the moon and back. Law have mercy - I could talk and sing with those kids forever. Silas is even more beautiful in person than his photos let on.
Her home is full of life and love. She is who you think she is - and that my friends, is saying a lot.

It was through Shannan's blog that I found sweet Jen of The Cottage Nest. I won a giveaway on her blog with my first comment. It was an instant connection between the two of us. After meeting her in person, I know why. She makes my teeth hurt - she's so sweet - and she's funny with a great wit about her. I keep mentioning how beautiful she is too - it's the kind of beauty that is coming up from out of the well of her spirit. Hearing her talk to her husband on the phone was so precious - you could just feel the love.
She's also a seed spit away, and we already have plans for an immediate visit. I'll stroll The Village with her, and eat cupcakes and ride scooters. We'll laugh and hug and share life stories.

Enjoy the rest of the photos - cause I'm just too filled up inside to type anymore. To Shabby, Atresha and JenJen - thank you from the bottom of my bottomless heart for making room in your hearts for me. I feel a lifetime friendship evolving with ya'll. May we all end up at the same nursing home foreva!
To all of you wonderful gals out there that I haven't met yet - thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your comments. They mean the world to me. You mean the world to me. This is why I blog -
