who i was meant to be

cowboy boots

my beautiful turquoise cowboy came in the mail yesterday. i LOVE them!!! so me. and yet, i never imagined i would own a pair of cowboy boots before.

nothing against cowboy boots… but i just was never into them. and now, i can tell they are going to be one of my favorite fashion accessories.

things are changing. the wind is shifting. and i am doing all sorts of brave things that i never imagined doing.

i suppose these things have been years in the making. but when you are in the midst of grief and loss and fire, you don’t realize all the beautiful things that might come out of that place.

these boots are more than just boots to me. they are a reminder that i am stepping into new places. and the joy that fills my heart is so indescribable when i say that. you have no idea!!!

these boots are going to be stepping into idaho in 2.5 short weeks!!! can i say i am just amazed at this beautiful gift? the gift of meeting the gorgeous melody ross. and we will paint and dream and heal together. what a beautiful beautiful gift!!!

and i remember the day when i thought another good thing couldn’t even possibly happen in my life. you know the waiting for the other shoe to drop syndrome? sometimes the bravest thing you can do is to believe with all of your heart that good things can come out of sorrow.

yes i am stepping into what i was meant to do. i am becoming who i was meant to be. and it feels so amazing!!! and scary at the same time.

all i have to say is that something BIG is coming!!!

meeting melody ross + my dreams + a lot of faith = something amazing! i can’t wait to share.
