Sharing Sundays... Life.

i want to introduce you to one of my college girlfriends, Jess of Life. If you haven't visited her blog, you absolutely MUST. i have always always been in awe of her writing. It's the kind of way i wish to write: with heart, raw emotion, and in the daze- clarity. Like this post of hers? touched my heart.

Even through relationships, moves, jobs, weddings, babies... we've always kept in touch with the girls we met in college, through the Mass Communications Department. Here we were a few years ago in Downtown Ft. Worth celebrating our gf Adrian's bachelorette party. I am so glad we've kept in touch all these years.

From the very beginning, the first thing i KNEW about Jess was her passion for music. Lyrics are sacred. She belongs in the woodstock era and her dream job is to write for Rolling Stone. She already made one dream of hers come true, to be a Radio DJ.

She is my small town country girl who dreams NYC, loves tattoos, is hopelessly smitten with her boyfriend who she calls "love" (and because i've known Jess for so long i know how deserving of this happiness she is. but because i've known her so long, i also know she is scared of the feeling that sometimes love makes her fragile), loves her dog children, loves the blogging community, and just bought her first house!

And she shares it all on her blog, Life.

I think you should meet my beautiful friend.

Coody Bug, i love you!!!! happy hour (cosmopolitans please!!!) SOON. i miss you xoxo

Coody Bug, i am so glad to offer you a little joy in these hard times that have been handed to you. bless your heart. Shannon's family is in my thoughts and prayers and you know i've always believed in the power of prayer. It works. It is the only thing i have EVER been certain about. I am just so glad she has you as her best friend to lean on. Your post today was beautiful. THANK-YOU!!! I'm always here for you pretty girl. xoxo

I was just re-reading through some old blogs and came across this one... it made me cry! (And you KNOW me, Mickey... I DON'T CRY!!)

To re-read such sweet words from someone I hold in such high regards has touched me, again. I love you pretty girl. Thanks for always being a friend to this loud, outspoken crazy-ass! :) I love you!
