Au Revoir

Some sweet gifts from my friend

i first titled this post “another good-bye” and then changed my mind.  yes, i did have to say good-bye to my sweet friend soraya last night because she is moving away, but it is not a final good-bye!  we first connected here in cyberspace and we will keep right on doing so, through our blogs and email.  

Last night

the way i see it, we were just incredibly lucky to be able to live close to each other for almost a year and spend some time hanging out and sharing our hearts.  soraya is really someone special – someone that does not come into your life every day, and certainly does not come into your life by accident!

this girl is going places (in more ways than one!)  her art is incredible and is starting to be noticed by the likes of somerset gallery and somerset studio.  her blog is also like an evolving piece of art, in which she eloquently pours out her heart regarding art, creativity, mama-hood and all the journeys of life.

On my studio wall

so i’m so, so sorry to see her go, but colorado is not exactly on the other side of the world.  there is a pretty good chance we will see each other again soon.  so au revoir, my friend!!

Another momento

p.s.  thank you ever so much for your sweet comments and emails following my last sad post.  we are navigating each day and trying to concentrate on the celebration and giving spirit of the season to fill the void we are feeling.  your thoughtfulness means the world!!
