ice cream babies

Loveliest of ladies, lucky me!

it's been awhile

I am in Southern Oregon visiting my Anastasia. I have been here for six days and must return home to Seattle this evening. I do not want to leave her. We have done nothing but do all of the things that we always dream of doing together. Long walks and good talks, swimming in ice cold lakes, hiking through the woods and climbing over rocks that cross the river, singing songs and laughing at silly & sometimes stupid things, braiding each others hair and snuggling up to scary movies. We made matching friendship bracelets in the park in Ashland. The same kind that girls make in elementary school. I will never take mine off. It saddens my heart deeply knowing I will have to say goodbye soon. I know I will cry. I wish I could pack her up and fly her home with me. 

Someday, we will be together in the same city and all will be right with the world.

chasing waves

Wouldn't it be nice to be so young and carefree again? I am doing my best to find that place within myself. No inhibitions! To be happy, confident and free.
