Over the course of the past few months, we’ve arranged, prepared, planned, packed for, sweated over, worried about, discussed, imagined, counted on, wondered, wished and dreamed for this weekend that just happened; the weekend when 9 bad ass beautiful women came to Austin to meet, most of us for the VERY first time in person.
From Thursday afternoon when I picked up the first woman, until Sunday when I said goodbye to the last, I was transported, touched, moved, impacted, enlightened, educated, and inspired.
I ate, took pictures, recorded, played, drank, walked, danced, sang, played piano, and watched everything I could possibly watch as it was happening in those moments in my world.
I hugged, kissed, talked, listened, and shared. Once or twice I even extolled.
I smiled, laughed, giggled, clapped, and downright hooted at times. I did NOT snort, however, a few times I was actually rendered speechless and quiet.
And now I have a colorful collage of some of the most beautiful memories of my life living right here in my heart.
To the 9 who were there, and the others who will be there next time, I want you to know, I am humbled and uplifted by having you each in my life.
I look forward to what’s ahead for each of us, and for all of us together.
I am filled with love, hope, inspiration, energy, laughter and light. You bad ass beautiful women are the wind beneath my wings, the light on my path, the sweet song in my ears, and the love in my heart.
Thank you forever for this weekend and for being in my life.
