Shayna My BFF and the most generous loyal lady I know. She has struggled with infertility for over 3 years but managed to stay by my side after I got pregnant and gave birth to our son despite the personal pain it must cause her. She is a trooper and the best godmother a little boy could ask for and one day, she will be a wonderful mother herself.

Stephanie - This mama is not only an awesome mom, talented photographer, and great friend, she has weathered quite the storm in the last year. Losing her father, her house, her dog, but never her faith or her smile. She has been there for me in moments of panic without hesitation despite her own heavy load.

Lilah - She's following me!! Ok, not really, but we both just experience pregnancy and motherhood, she just a month behind me... She is also a wonderful mommy and always on some adventure. She always seems to have positive things to say, even when "Chicken" is refusing to sleep or has shit out his diaper and up his back.

Aimee (and Brian, the dark horse knitter) - Fellow hippies with one of the most beautiful little girls I've ever seen. I love the kindredness we have over so many lifestyle choices, plus who doesn't love looking at pictures of Delilah and "aww"ing.

Joellen - A recent reading find that makes me happy!! It's always a joy reading her posts and I love peeking into her life as a fellow "hippy" She is a mommy-extraordinaire and balances a work life (soon) as well.

Phew, that was hard. Happy reading everyone!

You made me tear up! Thank you. It's hard to see the light sometimes, but it has done my heart a world of good to see that I have beautiful people around me, just like you. Thank you for thinking of me.

Aww Jess...I'm seriously in tears right now. You're the best! But one personal pain here. I love you guys so much and seeing Q's face reminds me of all I have to fight for. In complete honesty, you guys actually EASE the pain when it's at it's worst.

And I couldn't ask for a better best friend. Ever. I love you guys, more then you'll ever know. =*)
