"She was a woman with a million happy memories, who knew what is was like to experience true love and was ready to experience more life, more love and make new memories. Whether it happened in ten months or ten years. Whatever lay ahead, she knew she would open her heart and follow where it led. In the meantime, she would just live."

"May the sun bring you new energy by day,
may the moon softly restore you by night,
may the rain wash away your worries,
may the breeze blow new strength into your being,
may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life"

Goodness and Love

"Surely goodness and love shall follow me all the days of my life" Psalm 23:16

Yesterday, while sitting with my photographer (who also happens to be one of my favorite people in the whole world) at our favorite coffee shop in Beaufort….I realized that it had been exactly a year since we started collaborating together….and how drastically different my life is now compared to last April. Last night after a day spent in the sunshine with so many people that make me happy I sat down to write this and my son crawled into my lap while watching the Looney Tunes…..I looked out at the intercoastal waterway across the street from our home…..and I started crying…..happy tears…..for the first time in my life. I didn't realize just how blissful I was until I thought about all of the people that have made their way into my life this year and for those that have returned to it and the different kinds of love that I have for each of them…..and I finally understand that although there has been a lot of pain, "surely goodness and love shall follow me all the days of my life."
