I have the joy of working with many people in my job, clients you might call them. But many clients become friends as well and it becomes secondary that I am there with them  to go over a rug, a sofa, or window treatment. Instead we spend time catching up, talking about a fun new fashion purchase, or the best new restaurants. These deeper connections and friendships I am truly thankful for. My life is full because of them and I love having them in my life. I know that it is my job that brought us together but essentially it is the bond between people that connected us as friends.  I recently lost one of these friendships and today was a celebration for her. Her zest for life, style, and people will be something I will always cherish. She was a beautiful person inside and out and I am thankful that she was part of my life.

Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy, and celebration. The hummingbird's delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life's sweetest creation.
