3 Expressions Of Love:and Then Some

Apr 2, 2010 Personal, Portrait
you may have heard me mention the name, Aya, once or twice here on the bliggity blog.

Aya, or Ayako (as i knew her for the first half of my life ), is one of the MOST

truest of friends a girl could ever ask for



she is a lover-of-life who also happens to have the MOST beautiful heart that shines in every. single. thing. that. she does.

i don't know how she does it, but she always always manages to write & create cards that are SO ah!mazing... i literally have them framed or tacked into my walls.

in fact, receiving a card from Aya is as if she first bathed it in sunshine, then flew it to the moon just to sprinkle it with a touch of stardust, sealed it with a smooch & an extra dabble of LOVE. no joke.

i mentioned earlier some of the things that i considered being lucky about & my friendship with Aya is most certainly one of them. when i think of her, my heart feels like the hottest pink heart-shaped balloon. looking back, it is amazing to me how even in the first grade, my intuition knew we were going to be friends for life.

i am the luckiest,,, & the best part is that by sharing these 3 expressions of love, you all can hopefully feel a sense of your own 'lucky', too.

my dearest Aya,,, this . is . your. life ! may your heart be filled with LOVE, as mine is just by knowing wonderFULL you.
