CHRISTMAS SWEATERS TOGETHER + SHE 
PROBABLY LOVES WHEN HE SPINS HER IN 
CIRCLES ON THE ICE + I BET HE ACTUALLY
HAS NEVER SKATED A DAY IN HER LIFE
BUT DID IT TO BE A SWEET LITTLE 
GENTLEMAN TO HER . . .SINCE THEY'RE
ON THEIR FIRST DATE + ALL . . . "

2. SIGNS THAT ARE THIS ENCHANTING .
3. HOW I {WOULD} LOVE TO DO A TRIPLE
AXEL + LOOK THAT DARN ADORABLE  .

4. OLD TIME CARTOON . A MUST-LOVE .
5. LUCK + THE LUCKY STRIKES LOGOS .

6. WOBBLY LITTLE ICE SKATING CHAINS .

so , following yesterday's post , this is my nametag today .
i received a note from  a  mighty sweet lady who i 
previously blogged about here  + could not be more 
thankful at how much better she has gotten  +  how 
touching her words were today . . .  . she wrote :

lady kayla =
this summer when we first met, my Spirit 
knew we were cut from the same cloth.
mac + cheese
prayer
flowers in our hair
all the super healing powers a woman needs !
thank you for being yourself .

h o w  .  e n c o u r a g i n g  . 
s o,i'm still waiting to hear what 
Y  O U  R nametag w o u l d say :)

{ AND I DO LOVE ALL OF THOSE ELOQUENT -IST WORDS }

I LIKE THE IDEA OF THIS. OF KNOWING EXACTLY WHO I AM + WHAT I AM + HOW I CONTRIBUTE SOMEHOW TO THIS BIG , BIG  WORLD . BUT IT'S A BIT HARDER THAN IT LOOKS + THESE WORDS + SWEET LITTLE NAME CARDS CAN ONLY DIG SO DEEP INTO EXACTLY WHO A PERSON IN HIS OR HER ENTIRETY REALLY IS .

CAN YOU DO IT ? TAKE A MINUTE +  F I L L   I N   T H E   B L A N K S  F O R  U S  .
