showing our hearts.

since i'll be without internet as we roadtrip to our new home, i graciously asked my favorite ladies to blog-sit. 

not only will you get to meet some of my dearest friends, but see why i adore them so. 

i left each one with instructions from this little post: "With as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, a poem, a song (or piece of music), a quote, an item of clothing, and a place."

here's my heart

A Picture :

A Poem: 

"Understand, I'll slip quietly
Away from the noisy crowd
When I see the pale
Stars rising, blooming over the oaks
I'll pursue solitary pathways Through the pale twilit meadows,

With only this one dream:

You come too."

-Rainer Maria Rilke

A Song:

(our wedding song Til Kingdom Come by Coldplay)


Item of Clothing: 


italy, my heaven on earth.  {photo by my brother}

*stay tuned each day to see beautiful hearts and say hello to each fabulous girl visiting? grazie! i'll see you hopefully in a week! xo

Can't wait. But mostly I can't wait for tomorrow! I'm so excited for your adventures and chats along the way and the phone call that says you're safely in El Paso. Love you pretty girl!

(I have a feeling our clothing & quotes are gonna have some similarities :) and this reminds me that I need to send you one of my top 3 favorite poems ever, by Rilke)
