Really a head to head…
Dear Rose, Dave, Christina, hubby, Aunt Val, Meredith, Lorrie, Erin, Amanda (across the pond), Elizabeth, Holly, Crystal, Janice, Belen, Janice (another one!), Nicole, Joanna, Adrian, Daniel, Mrs. Groves (is that your real name?), Melanie, Marcie, Mom, dkadler (sorry… tell us your name :)), Lori, Brian, Celani, Melanie, Donna, Kelly, Nikki, Rishona, Douniazed, and Talin (who loves chocolate possibly more than I do):
It occurs to me that though you are a small bunch, you Poetic Aperture followers you, you CLEARLY have excellent taste. We are an intimate community of 34 e-mail and WordPress followers, with a few close friends who visit almost every day thrown in the mix. I love you guys!
Joanna told me that she sent one of my posts about clearing clutter to her husband (and she said I helped her!) I love that!
I have reconnected with a friend who gave me what is most likely the best compliment I have ever received:
All I can say is WOW. You know when you have an old friend that you haven’t seen or talked to in a while and then you connect and it turns out they’re this incredibly amazing and talented person who has finally found the way to express themselves – the way they couldn’t back when you knew them but you knew they had it in them? No? Well, I do now.
You are amazing talented and creative and accessible. I am just blown away by… everything.
I am/was the first blog that Nicole subscribed to. A few months ago, she Googled “letting go and making space” because that’s something she was working on at the time, and since that was the exact title of one of my blog posts, she ended up reading and enjoying it. The rest is history. Thanks, Nicole!
We have among us some of my relatives, some of my classmates from The Momoir Project writing courses, some new and some long-time friends, some REALLY awesome photographers, and my sweet hubby (who says he reads it daily to stay ahead of the Naomi curve!)
My peeps, I want you to know that I appreciate and savor every single comment and compliment from you. In anything that I think of undertaking, you friends are definitely part of what pushes me forward. I sense that great things are going to happen in 2012 and I cannot wait to share them all with you!
