It Begins

Tonight we are driving back late through CT after kicking off what I am sure are going to be two of the most life changing months of our lives. And I honestly in all my heart couldn’t imagine a more perfect start.

Sure I woke up today and couldn’t find a thing to wear. And apparently my new hairspray tends to give me Dolly Parton hair. And we just never did get my mike to work quite right.

But it was perfect. Absolute soul filling, heart lifting, I can’t believe we get to do this with our lives perfection. And I am thankful for it.

Thankful for all the people there beaming out love & support all night, as we laughed & cried our way this first time through our talk. Thankful to all of you who laughed at my bad jokes and waited patiently as we choked back tears.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Boston for that. For giving more than you took. For caring more than you had to. For loving more than we knew was possible.

And for showing us our own little slice of perfection. Dolly Parton hair and all.

We love you!!

    Thank you, thank you for this conference! You said only about 50% of the people would do something about what they heard… well yesterday I bought fresh flowers at the grocery store… They were $5.73 and worth every penny! They are a small piece of what my "good life" looks like and hopefully just the first step of putting what I learned into practice!

  19. Macy

    What a great night. Still thinking about it and getting new ideas all day. Thank you for being so open and sharing so much and for helping confirm that I’m on the right path.

    And I was a little thrilled to see myself and my fabulously warm white scarf there in the front row in the last picture. *grin*

    Best of luck on the rest of your trip!
