you know there is something down right exciting happening
when for the second time in several months
you walk into a random store in phoenix, arizona and see
the work of a dear dear soul you love,
on the pages of a publication!!!
it happened again just today.
i was in this cool artsy, mixed media, vintagey little shop
when i heard the two nice ladies behind the counter
ooing and gooing over the cover of the latest "somerset studio"
they had just pulled out of the box.
and "oh my gosh, look at that piece of "a girl and her bird"!"
"how clever to be just sittin up in the treetops with the birds
havin the best afternoon conversation!"
"gina...would ya look at her sweet, round face and those red shoes..."
i tell ya, i whipped around and squeeled,
louder than was probably ladylike....
"that.s my girl! that.s miss mindy lacefield!"
and i tried to say it in my most saucy southern arkansas accent
just like mindy.s
(but i really butchered it...sorry mindy)
the three of us sat there flippin through the pages and admiring all the
dreamy, liquid candy that oozed over the glossy pages!
huge. gigantic. hugs to you mindy!
watching the amazing journey you are on just tickles me pink sister!
(and orange and red and yellow and....)
what have your friends been accomplishing lately
that you could cheer about and celebrate wildly?
(cul*ti*vate the generosity of a supportive spirit)
