Beautiful Faces. Magical Places.

I am eager for the lists that make their way out on sleepy Friday mornings. Today I am a Decaf Earl Grey, every sip devoured and desired, guiltily grateful my son wanted the pizza hot lunch so I only had to make one lunch and already spent far too much time online this morning (meaning, so has my Lucas) kind of mama.

These are my pay-it-forward lists.

Let's just start right here, with Liz. Feels better now doesn't it?

Then let's glide over to Amber, and go, ahhhh, yes! Damn, I wish exercise was my go-to place also...

Now we can laugh with Jamie, I was the mom who never had anything, always missing something, I probably still am, but always grateful I just know where my kids are!

Tears might fall when you gift yourself time to read this letter from Shawn. Drink in every word.

What does your mom want to know? Tanya shares her memory and the truth of a mother. Her heart is wide open.

There is life inside you, and you and you. And life and love inside of Alicia's heart. Silent blessing to this beautiful mama.

My sweet Stephanie wrote a love note. To her life, her choices, her bravery, her love. To the Universe. And to me and my cookies. xo

Amanda's most beautiful labor of love in book form is out today, so honored and blessed to be a part of her story.
