just around the corner...

in one week from today i will be flying into boise, idaho
we are all going to brave girls camp together.
you really should go and read all about what melody ross and kathy wilkins
have cooked up, in the beautiful mountains of mccall idaho.
jenny doh and suzi blu sang their praises of this intimate event)
i am so excited to go breath that cool, crisp mountain air.
to find that brave girl i know is inside me.
to reunite with beautiful souls and sew new amazing spirits
 into this life tapestry that i am weaving.

i am so ready to go and just...
what do you have around the corner that you are looking forward to?
