1,000 posts ago we still had our beloved Jen B in our lives. Another year has gone by without her, but not a day has gone by without thinking of her. This pink & green movement that we all created together will forever be in her honor. And we couldn’t be more proud of what Charlotte & Triad Smarty Pants have become. We started as one tiny little blog between two Smarty girlfriends and with the love and support of our Charlotte and Triad communities, we continue to thrive year after year.
So on this 4th day of February, we ask all of you to celebrate the special girlfriends in your life and tell them how much they really mean to you. Clear your calendar and go to lunch or grab a glass (or bottle in my case!) of wine and take it all in. You never know when things can turn on a dime and you may not get that chance. I’m a total American Idol junkie and if you haven’t heard Kris Allen’s latest and greatest, Live Like We’re Dying (BTW, I personally think he kicked Adam Lambert’s booty:), you may want to check it out. Here’s a verse that really resonates with me right now:
“We gotta start lookin’ at the hands of the time we’ve been given
If this is all we got, then we gotta start thinkin’
If every second counts on a clock that’s tickin’
Gotta live like we’re dying
We only got 86 400 seconds in the day to
Turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell ’em that we love ’em while we got the chance to say
Gotta live like we’re dying”
So true, my Smarty friends! I raise my glass to you, our Smarty community, and lift it up to all of the great women in our lives. And don’t forget to email this post to all of your Smarty girlfriends!
We miss you, Jen!
