JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 252 :: joy is drinking wine with friends

15 Sep
{girls weekend}

Tonight, I am with “my girls.” We all flew to Denver to meet up in our annual gathering. It’s a touchstone in so many ways, there are so many years, tears, experiences, jobs, adventures and dreams we have seen each other through. So nothing brings me more joy than sitting on a porch drinking wine overlooking the Colorado night sky with my girls.  

Sometimes all you need is friends and wine all mixed together.
More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 89 :: long lost friends

2 Apr
{flowers}

I’ve been thinking a lot about my friends lately — and how lucky I am to be connected to so many amazing people in this world. What a true gift, in so many ways that words cannot describe. Joy is one word, that can only sum it up.

I’ve also been thinking about the times that I have felt so very far away from my “people” — and in those times when I cannot reach a friend, it’s always been the flowers that give me support.

The flowers pop up, bloom, and remind me that there is still beauty in this world.  Sometimes I think the flowers are long lost friends because of the joy they bring to me.

And, those flowers have taught me so many valuable lessons.

  • To bloom no matter who is watching.
  • To remember there will always be another spring
  • To celebrate all the various colors and combinations this world has to offer
  • And to recognize beauty in every stage of life

Those flowers are just so full of wisdom, love, and joy, aren’t they?
Thank you, my friends.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 59 :: the gift of friends

1 Mar
{joy-filled}

Sometimes the best gifts in life are people. Especially the people who can see your life even better and more clear than you possibly ever could yourself. That’s what I call a true friend.

And I like to call my true friends too! Tonight I was on the phone with one for three hours — three hours! It’s a good thing that we never run out of anything to say to each other. It’s even better to be seen.

I think a true friend is one who can believe in the other person’s best life, beautiful gifts, and biggest goals. No matter what today looks like.


Joy is the gift of a friend. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 49 :: joy of friends

19 Feb
{inside}

I’ve been thinking a lot about friends these days. The people in my life, who have come in and out at just exactly the right times. 

There are few words to describe it, but there is so much joy.

It has me thinking about the joy of friends. The lifelong joy and this very moment joy, and all the tiny turns in between.

A good friend is a mirror, holding you up to your greatest potential. And catching so you don’t fall to your lowest point. They are givers of good in so many ways.

I feel blessed in the friendship department. The sisterhood of the traveling friends. You know who you are!

Here’s to all the friends. New. Old. Silver. Gold.
Thank you for the joy. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 310 :: soul candy

6 Nov
{sweet}

I was thinking a lot about sweetness today. The sweetness I had this weekend with my girlfriends. The sweetness of friendships. The sadness that it is now over and we are all home.

And, then, it popped into my head:  Soul Candy.
Having these sweet, sweet weekends together is just like candy for the soul. It’s so sweet and so good, and then, before you know it, it’s gone!

How kind (and so very sweet).
We all need a little candy for the soul.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 309 :: beautiful kindness

5 Nov
{flying away}

The eagle has landed. And, even though It is so hard to say goodbye to my dear, sweet friends, it is so wonderful to have had the adventure in the first place.

I could have spent time in my jammies, playing games, sitting by the pool, walking in the park, shopping in the quaint boutique-lined streets, and gazing at the river and sunny skies (and eating glorious food!) with anyone. But life is better with forever friends — and adventures are too.

As I looked out my window high above the world today on my way home, I thought a bit about kindness. How it begins within the heart and then radiates out to all that is, and all that will ever be.

Kindness is beautiful.
So is friendship.
And so is saying goodbye, as long as we follow it with, “until next time.”

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 308 :: happy day 2

4 Nov
{kind time}

Ahhh….. Friends, sunshine, fun and some incredible food. Thank you Denver for a perfect weekend. Thank you, Life, for incredible friends. The kind that have known and loved each other for decades.

We walked 7 miles today (according to my iWatch). We ate two amazingly created culinary meals and we laughed our way through one funny movie about A Bad Moms Christmas.

It all has me thinking…
There is power in numbers.
And there is magic in friendship.
It’s like walking on sunshine.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 301 :: second-hand

28 Oct
{kindness}

Saturday night, movie night. I watched a movie called Secondhand Lions. It was borrowed on a recommendation from my friend Lauren. And it has me thinking about the kindness. The kindness of sharing – especially with friends.

The movie was sweet. And friendship is even sweeter.
How kind.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

Oh, kindness. Thank you for teaching me so much this year, and tonight for teaching me this: Good friends make all the difference. 

Here’s to keeping the love, support, and laughter of friends together.
That’s kindness in my diary.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 253 :: you’ve got a friend

10 Sep

Whewwww.

As of this moment, it seems that most of my friends are safe in Florida from Hurricane Irma. At least that is what Facebook is reporting. I am wondering what we did before FB and the internet and email to stay connected in times of disaster? Heck, I’m even wondering how we ever drove ten hours through the desert of Nevada without a cell phone?

But we did.

I prefer the technology of today. It’s nice to know you’ve got a friend. Speaking of friends, I met a new one last night. He is a camel. A very interesting creature that hails from the other side of the world.

Ironically, from a place where all these hurricanes originate from too.
You can see more here

This reminds me of something I know to be the truth: we are all connected. Even if half a world away. We share the same air. The same water. The same systems that swirl around and around in the atmosphere.

That, if nothing else, seems to be a reason to be kind.
To each other.
And our world.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
