I cant believe February is over. The breath was knocked out of me for a minute when this hit me today, like a punch in the stomach or a slap in the face. Then, I struggled between guilt and inspiration, realizing I have not been taking advantage of all of the amazing opportunities I know are dancing out there, for me, everyday.
Wake up Lace.

This is such a cool photography project! I LOVE IT!

Every week, photographers ian land and caroline hancox each take a photograph and email it to each other.  they then create a diptych of the photos and display them on a website, taking turns deciding which photo goes on the left and which one goes on the right. to make things more interesting they live 114 miles apart, have never met and do not know what the other one has taken during the week.

And then he was gone...


My morning after Valentines day began at 5 am. I woke up with a headache and woke him with a kiss. We stumbled around the dark hotel room for a bit making positive he wasnt leaving anything behind, then it was time to go. I sat in the passenger seat as we joked around, trying to make light of the situation. I was holding back tears. Airport road came too soon.

He kisses me in the car. First on my lips, then moving up towards my forehead. A few tears escape and he wipes them away for me. I pull myself together and get out of the car. His luggage sits at his side, mocking me. He squeezes me for a long time, we kiss and then we part. He starts forward while still looking back and I shout something funny to disguise the fact that I am absolutely falling apart. And then he is gone.

I am alone. In his car. Staring blankly at the almost sunlit road. The terrible and usual thoughts roll through, of plane crashes or freak incidents. A few more tears compile as I worry that that could have been our last kiss. Deep down I know he will be ok, and back in, yes, only a week, but this is how I work. This is how I am made up. I worry, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, until he is back at my side. 

I make it back to the hotel room. Its still dim but there is some movement outside at this point. I pull the comforter, that is not mine, that is not comforting me at all, that still smells of him, completely over my head and try to quiet my thoughts. My mind races with the fact that we have never spent this much time apart. No more than two nights to be exact. My stomach aches as I wonder how it will all play out. I finally fall asleep to my little mantra...he will be ok, its just one week, you can handle it on your own, its just one week.

Two hours later, I wake up to a text message. From him, missing me, loving me. I am not alone.

My mission in life...

My Love Day...

My Valentines day was absolutely perfect. It started with a kiss from the boyfriend. Followed by some breakfast and mimosas in bed. And while I thought the boyfriend had left to get ready for work, he was actually scheming around a bit. I opened my door to a surprise! The most beautiful flowers I have ever received!

When the boyfriend got done with work, he picked me up and we took the short drive over the river to our "get away". We dropped our stuff in our lovely hotel room at THE JUPITER and then it was off to dinner at the DOUG FIR. Dinner was completely wonderful. Then it was back up to the hotel to spend the evening together. We opened presents, ordered dessert, watched some cable, kissed a ton, and ended then night wrapped  in each other. I couldnt have been happier. I had the best valentine in the entire world. It was absolutely blissful.
 How was your day?

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
