"My Friends" - Red Hot Chili Peppers

are
f r e a k i n g
amazing.

Truth be told . . . .

Some of my most favorite ones . . . I've never even met [not yet, anyway].

Call that "creepy", "weird" and or "not normal".  I'm perfectly fine with that.

Then, once I do . . . . . it rocks.  I have left every blogger meet-up thinking . . . Yep, exactly as awesome as I thought him or her would be.  [And most of the time, some how even AWESOME-R]

One of the bloggers. . . . I am dying to meet . . . .

C a r o l i n e.

You can find her speaking pig-latin  French [here]. 

And seriously . . . I had to CALL her after I saw this post:

http://journeytoahalfmaraton.blogspot.com/2011/05/for-my-arizona-friend.html

So. freaking. thoughtful.

So after my 24 hour run. 

I received an email [with a freaking awesome attachment].

She had put all my posts from my 24 hour treadmill run into a book. 

Like a book I can keep forever. 

Like a book, I'd have NEVER gotten around to / MADE time to make.

She sent me the link [plus a coupon, this lady is a thinker]

And now I have this:


pureawesomeness.
The book that can make me cry by page two. Actually 2.4.

I love the last page too.  Dawn, Mandi, my old 2nd grade boyfriend interviewing my Peanut . . . . ;)

I truly don't have the words Caroline.
And after that email yesterday [which, by the way . . . .is the best email I have ever received on that/explaining {that} topic].

I.  must.  meet.  you. [we'll throw in the abs showdown with CK as needed].

Thoughtful people rock.  Are you are one of the most thoughtful people I have ever meet/not met. ;)

Thank you. [x 4,444,444]

Caroline said...

Ah you....
you made me cry
I don't deserve all of this...ayaye..THANK YOU for this post full of kindness it is so lovely and sweet and it makes me look way better then I really am...

I feel the same way on the friend thing and I also cannot wait to meet you in person.

I think what you did was something so great and generous and it deserved to be saved in a special way for you and for your daughter and for when you are a grand ma...(in MANY MANY MANY years Peanut if you read this..MANY years..) I would have loved to be there and run a few miles with you and I couldn't so this was my participation!

Abs showdown: I will be the referee all I have on my abs are scars...not pretty. I will be bias to female and blonde participant..so good luck to the rest of you who's name starts with a C.

Thank you my Arizona friend

Richelle said...

What an amazingly thoughtful gift! :)

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

What an amazing friend. You deserve tons of wonderful friends. How thoughtful to make a book for you.

Char said...

Who sys you have to meet someone to know their heart. As bloggers we put so much of ourselves out there for the world to see. And somehow we find like-minded wonderful people who understand us. Caroline found you, GOT you and did something so special for you - she must be a very special person too.
