Just had to post some photos of my very best childhood friend, Nikki. She passed away at 21 years old of a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis. I can't help but to smile every time I think of her. She had a joyful zest for life and the best sense of humor I've ever seen. She was a clown, always making me laugh with her break dancing moves or by stuffing her bra with anything she could fit into it. I miss her so much and over 10 years after her death still treasure the friendship we had.
This weekend I will be honoring Nikki with some friends & family by doing a fundraising walk for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I am so blessed to have the health and ability to do this for all those who suffer with this horribly tragic disease.
As for Nikki, I will remember you always and treasure the imprint you have left on my heart.

Cupcakes, cupcakes, must be done by noon. Get up, get out of bed. I need to celebrate! Today's the day that she was born, the day my life was forever changed. She's growing so very fast and before I know it she'll be gone out on her own. Cupcakes, cupcakes must be done. How could this time have passed so quickly? Just yesterday she was learning how to ride her bike. Just last week she was tiny as could be curled up right next to me. But here she is now at 5'3" and I'm happy to see the young woman she is and will be. She blows me away every day with her smile and her laughter and on days her new found sass. I'm as proud as I ever thought I could be.

So many photos, but I couldn't resist. My girlfriend, Andi, and I went on a little day trip with our littlest girls for a visit to the zoo, lunch with good friends visiting from San Francisco and a beach stop with my cousin Gianna. We had a great day, long....but great! Hope your day is happy.
