"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy. They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." I must start with a picture of this amazing person that graces my blog often. Willow is one of those "charming gardeners" in my life that more like Miracle Grow:) She started an incredible network of fantabulous photographers called Tacoma Click Chicks. I have been dragging my feet for quite a while on getting a class together over the last year. Well, Willow finally convinced me to try my content on her happy little group. I know I always say this, but MAN did this trip ever rock my soul! Could you imagine getting up in front of the most supportive group of women and talking about your passion for hours. There is nothing better than that:) So thank you Willow (and Click Chicks) for helping me find the courage to share my story and my perspective.
Thank you to these beautiful women for being my Miracle Grow of the month. You shared your hearts and passion and together it made for the perfect mixture for creative bliss.
Thanks Kenz for the shot that will always flood my heart with the memories of the day. Also, thank you for always opening your home to me and the Carlisle Clan. Thank you for being my biggest fan for a day. I loved having you by my side in the form of courage. The kind of courage that only the best friendships can give you:)That's more like it. A picture reflecting exactly what we all experienced by taking a moment out our month to go beneath the surface and focus on our common thread...PASSION. Take in the joy from all these amazing smiles! Take it in. Let it seep into your pores and drip into your heart all day.I got into everyone's grill to see how they did if they just didn't care. If for one moment it was just me in front of them, wanting to remember their faces. We couldn't have eaten at a more perfect location for lunch. This is exactly how I felt after such a wonderful day!I know you looked right at that beautiful smile in this picture. I just met her that fateful day and she surprised Amy and I with a lunch on her. I don't think I have ever had anyone do this for me. This amazing person is Jenny Wohrle.And you know and LOVE this face! Usually I play the role of her biggest fan as she ignites souls all around her with her music. Well, for this one day, she became my biggest supporter and travelled up with me to share this day of growth because Jake stayed behind with the kids. I can't even put into words how much this day impacted my life and I will continue to share my story and my journey in hopes that it brings as much joy and perspective as these kind of days bring to me. There was even more perfectness to this day when I got to bring Amy up to my sister's newly remodelled, beautiful home, and introduce her to my parents. I have pictures for another post about that:) Thank you Jake for holding my hand on this quest and for always believing in me. Thank you for continuing to cultivate that safe place for me to continue to find my growth. Without you, I my garden would have never been started. Together we grow, quite possibly, the most beautiful garden on earth;)
