Last weekend I went to Seattle to hang out with my friend Tammi and was also able to visit with Misty and Kim. It was such a fantastic weekend! Talk about feeling the love from your friends. Tammi and I went to a winery to see Sarah McLachlan in concert. I've seen her a few times before, and as always, she was simply amazing. It was also a weekend of actually being kinda girly. Tammi and I got out makeup done at Nordstrom's. The service was free, but who knew makeup could be so expensive? I've only ever bought it at Target and such places. Crazy. But I did enjoy getting it done and learning application tips. I also bought a dress (at Target :) for the wedding next week. I know...none of this sounds like me. It's good to be someone different every once in a while. Anyway, there was this random drawing contest to get to go on stage for Sarah M. You have to say what made you "shine." I wrote one about Caleb, and how his journey has changed me forever. I thought Tammi was going to write about being a mother. Instead, she wrote this:
My best friend and I will be attending the concert together and we will be “shining” in spirit celebrating our 30 plus year friendship and love of music. We were born and raised together in Alaska and have spent our years since loving and supporting each other through the trials and tribulations as well as all the wonderful blessings along the way. For us, no matter how hard our experiences have been, we always have each other and our love of music that shines in our hearts. We send each other cd’s because we don’t live that close and the music, often Sarah’s lifts our hearts and souls when we can’t be there in person. Life is a journey and this concert with be our time to shine together in our amazing friendship of trust and love.
Pretty rad, huh? Since this is my diary, I had to add it. I'm so blessed to have such a great, healthy friendships in my life. And Tammi? She's just fucking awesome. Always has been.
I leave on Sat for AK. I'll be up there all week. I have tons of insecurities about my weight, concern for money and timing of it all. But more than anything, I'm excited for my friend Caity's wedding. She so deserves every happiness, and I'm so glad I'm going to be there to celebrate her big date. The weekend after I get back, we'll go to Vancouver. The next weekend my sister is coming. And then....we are off. It's going to fly by. I hope and pray that things for the move fall into place soon...
As for my eating, I'm still a mess. I know it.... No excuses.....
Hope you all are well and super happy!
