the Birth of Something Wonderful!

I have this friend that I love so much, and tonight she became a grandma!  She is not on facebook so I am hoping that someday she will stumble upon this... and even if she doesn't, I am so ecstatic for her that I don't know what else to do but type... because I do not have my camera there to shoot the actual birth.

I love that I happened to random text her, and she responded while her daughter was actually pushing. I think that is a special bond that us women sometimes have with each other...sometimes we just know or sense that something important is happening to the women we are connected with and love!

So here is to Mister Brooks and the amazing family that he was born into this evening!  I know he is going to be spoiled and loved on soooo much... and I cannot wait to use my status of newborn photographer at the hospital to sneak my way in and see him myself this weekend!!

And I love it ... just love it... when something amazing and happy occurs!  

To my friend, who loved her parents so much for the grandparents they were to their children, now is their honorary time to fill the same shoes... and I know they will with ease!

Today is a great day for a birthday!

Some things just need repeating....



I think that I have posted this at least two other times on my blog.  I cannot help myself.  I love this song and what it means to US!

I had the perfect weekend with my frog.  We travel to the other side of the state to hear one of our favorite musicians, Marc Cohen.  As if I could not love his first album any more... he sang it all the way through with stories of each of the songs.  Listening to him, in this beautiful and perfectly acoustic auditorium was near to spiritual.  And bonus he sang our song, True Companion!

We travel back to the Oakwood Resort to consume adult beverages on the "back porch" and here we got acquainted with Will Certain and his voice, along with his beautiful girl, whom I instantly clicked with.  We are all well lubricated, the mood is loud and fun and then Will sings this song.  Melt my heart.  I knew the song True Companion was coming at the concert... but some stranger sings this song and it struck the cord.  A rush of memories and nostalgia.

How ironic we drove away from a blissful evening on a Sunday morning, in the rain, and I didn't want to leave.  How perfect this song is for us!   So glad that we found our way back home to one another!  "Back and forth we sway like branches in the storm, change of weather, still together in the end."

It was the best weekend I have had in such a long time!
