Figuring Life Out

My lovely friend Alexandra sent me this amazing video and because I can’t keep it to myself, I’m posting it today.

I hope that you find bits in this video that speak to you and make you slow down and breathe in these moments … these beautiful, small moments.

Thank you, Alexandra (and Kris, who doesn’t watch videos), for thinking of me when you saw this. You are both such amazing friends. Much love to you both.

    Oh, I cannot take the credit. My niece sent it to me, I sent it to Kris, who within a second, said, "wwwhhhaaat??? girl….this HAS got to go to Nichole. With an H."

    Or something like that.

    And I knew she was right.

    It is wonderful, and the book, will soon be on my nightstand.


    Thanks for being the one who appreciates these things along with me. Not many of us in the world, it feels like, somedays.

    This is amazingly beautiful and there is a rainbow in it. Hadley sends me rainbows when I need them. So glad I came here to get one more. Thank you.

    What a powerful and beautiful video. Loved the images, the words, the message. It fits perfectly here on your blog. Taking in the moments, I have to remind myself daily to slow down and take it in. Thanks for sharing Nichole.

    OK, I did watch this video.

    Because it was from Alexandra.

    Alexandra is special . . . she so is.

    And when I watched the video, I thought immediately of Nichole.

    Happy sighs that it is here.

    It feels like the perfect home.
