angela is artist and owner of button bird designs,
she is kind of a big deal, but she treats everyone else like they are the big deal.
so when erin asked me to go hear angela and myquillyn speak a few years ago,
i said YES even though women's conferences are notsomuch my thing.
angela spoke about making something out of nothing,
seeing potential everywhere you look,
and living well while spending little.
she moved my soul.
so when she asked ME to meet her for coffee one day i was all...
who ME? um... do you even KNOW who you ARE??
and then i stressed about what to wear.
only to find out that angela has this way of making you feel great about yourself,
no matter what you wear.
friendship is born at that moment when one persons says to the other,
what? you too? i thought i was the only one.

sometimes coffee and conversation change your life...
angela is a maker of beautiful things and a giver of good gifts.
her handmade neck wraps and eye pillows are filled with lavender and soul soothingness..
her george pillows make people happy...
her owls made her famous.
go get some to give away at her etsy shop!!
but the best gifts she gives are the light and life she brings to every day.
angela IS christmas morning.
go find a lover
ride away somewhere all bright and new
'cause i have seen no other
who compares with you
you belong among the wildflowers
you belong in a boat out at sea
you belong with your love on your arm
you belong somewhere you feel free
erin, my soul sister, is a free spirit and a wild child.
we are not the kind of friends who meet for lunch,
we are the kind of friends who meet at the airport.
you know that whole...
dance like there's nobody watching,
love like you'll never be hurt,
sing like there's nobody listening,
and live like it's heaven on earth...thing
yeah, that's erin.
she posted wildflowers on my wall one day so it's my song now
but i'm giving it to you today
because you belong somewhere you feel free too.
we thought this book we are writing was about marriage.
we thought wrong.
we are writing a book about freedom.
erin helps me be free.
she reminds me that everything is a choice...
we can meet for lunch or...
we can meet for singing and dancing a night away at a concert.
we can wait until we find the perfect painting to hang on the wall or...
we can hang the plates we already have and love all over the place.
we can stick supermarket flowers in a vase or...
we can put them in our grandmother's pretty teapots and teacups.
everything is a choice...
christina for all
