this blog entry is dedicated to my fabulous friends without whom surviving the past year of heartbreak and rediscovering myself would not have been possible. heres to the women whose sense of humour, sense of design and sense and sensibility in matters of my heart and soul proved to be a picker upper as i scraped the bottom of the barrel after another one of lifes unexpected swerves. the best part has been the laughter, the spontaneous combustion of giggly laughter interspersed with philosophical and deep analyses on life, love and men. heres to the designers in us, which enabled all of us to continue keeping a mad happy outlook on life, through writing, reading, illustrating and the ability to share what is in our hearts and minds. heres to women in general who believe in the power of communication- the fact that putting it out there will make it better because whether we get what we want or not at point x, at point y we will love what we got. and that is a kind of faith only a fabulous woman is capable of.
