"we shared and laughed. we cried and created.
we listened and learned"
~Beth~



"It was a collision of creative energies, bundles of nerves,
armfuls of hugs, freedoms to cry 
and space to just be"
~Deb Taylor ~

"was it always easy? no. 
five women. enough said. 
{it takes real women to admit, know and understand that}"
~Beth~

I will always remember how brave I felt, taking a plane across the country, going to meet some women I had never laid eyes on before ! I will always remember how excited I was when I saw you and Beth at the airport, holding up my name on a hand written sign! I will always remember how we all came together, and soaked up the experience of this special gathering. I will always remember it with love and fondness. ❤️

hahaha! i remembered immediately how much i hated this picture of me - no makeup, hair all amess. but now i see it and it just makes me smile, remembering how cold it was - after all, wasn't this a florida beach? - and remembering what fabulous women you all are. unlike kim, i never felt brave - i was the scared girl - but you all opened your arms and made that okay.
