"If you know someone who has lost a child or anybody who's important to them, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died, they didn't forget they died. You're not reminding them. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that's a great, great gift" - Elizabeth Edwards

"The deep hurt is the mirror image of the deep joy that still awaits you." - Bruce C. Hafen

Dinner and pedicures

I went out with some neighbors for dinner and pedicures last Friday. We were celebrating Laura’s birthday early. I loved the gold color I picked for my toes. The coconut chicken meal I had was super delicious! I had a mint brownie too. I love to hang out with these girls!
