so i have this friend...

this post is totally not what you're thinking.

but i do have this friend.

who i have known for a total of ohhhh somehting like 8 weeks.

and you know what she did in that 8 weeks?

she made me love her TO DEATH.

and now ... well her little spot beside me will be empty from 9-5.

and yes i will still see her sweet face doing many more fun things like:

drinking lattes
painting ceramics
invading other cities


i will MISS her.

and not the kind of miss that you are like 'ohwahteveritsnotabigdeal'

the kind of miss where you're like WHOAireallymissyou.

the silver lining though [because there is always always a silver lining]

is that this is one of those times that just when you think your life was really perfect, it got more perfecter.

you know that feeling right?

oh goodness i hope you do.

for real?

the past week it has hit me like a freight train.

we are getting married...

in nine freaking months.

that is 100% totally less than a year.

all of those DIY projects that i have been dreaming about are going to start coming together.

all of those offers to help are going to be cashed in on.

all of my dreams of registering for our new house are going to come true very very soon.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEE i could not be more excited.

something new.

did you ever have something that you wanted to SCREAM from the roof tops but under absolutely no circumstances were you allowed to mention even a whisper?

that is how i am feeling at this moment.

like i just want to let it all out.

and tell you everything.

tell you every single last bit of every detail that i know.

except that i don't have all the details. and i'm not too sure of what i know. except for that it is going to be a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

almost but probably not quite as amazing as the truffle girls who are rocking my world so.damn.hard. right now.

well worn

Cosmic girl, originally uploaded by E.m.m.a...

years of artful dancing. and aching.

the thrills of the stage. and the quietness of backstage.

graceful bows and pliets.

something about this photo instantly reminded me of my 5 years short of life long friendship with my lovely tara.

i think it might be that these shoes seem to be worn in all the right places and look oh so comfortable.

like you could slip them on every day and dance dance dance.

just like us.





i love them all.

in my search for the perfect font i found the site veer

how did i not know about this?

how many years have i lived without knowing this site existed?

cynthia june has me by the heartstrings.

and by heartstrings i mean i havetoneedto have this.

you know what i mean right?

plus...june is one of my most favorite names ever.

because they match the rest of my wardrobe

i heart these so much.

the round toe.

the heel.

the color.

and. the. ruffles.

ohmylord. the ruffles.

it was like they were sitting on the shelf waiting for me.

so of course i snagged them.

and now they are about the only thing you'll see on my feet for quite awhile.

i love them.

love love love them [even though i have had a hard time finding them lately].

the delicious karey m. reminded me of these ones today and they made my otherwise ireallyhateyouandidontwanttodoanythingtoday mood fly out right out the window.

sometimes you just need a little reminder of what you have.

or what you stand to lose.

i've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does
go on and it will be better tomorrow. i've learned that you can tell a lot about
a person by the way he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage,
and tangled christmas tree lights. i've learned that regardless of your
relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your
life. i've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life.
i've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. i've learned that
you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to
be able to throw something back. i've learned that whenever i decide something
with an open heart, i usually make the right decision. i've learned that even
when i have pains, i don't have to be one. i've learned that every day you
should reach out and touch someone. people love a warm hug, or just a friendly
pat on the back. i've learned that i still have a lot to learn. i've learned
that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but
people will never forget the way you made them feel.
