I love my home. The fact that I love to leave does not take away from how much i love it. This weekend we went to Crested Butte Colorado for the wedding of our dear friends Jessica and Charlie. It was sooooo amazing. I mean first it is in Crested Butte which if you don't know it is is stunning!
There is something about 7000-9000 feet Colorado in the summer and fall that is crazy amazing. Combine that with good people who love life and love each other and you have an amazing time. Meeting their family was so fun. They came from Oklahoma and Connecticut. Wild fun and totally crazy bunch of family loving people.
It has been 5 years since I completed breast cancer treatment .
For me hitting the five mark has been a big goal. I am there and i feel amazing. When i was starting treatment, one of my dearest friends, Kim Curless told me about a national organization called Casting For Recovery. It is a program that you have to know about. Breast cancer survivors of all stages get to go to amazingly beautiful places in this country to fly fish with people who are divine. It is fun. It is healing. If you have a loved one with breast cancer please tell them.
After Kim told me about it I decided to go. I went on a trip here in Colorado. I met amazing women. women who had something in common with me. There was a woman named Julie. She was very young. Like 30. She had young children and we completely connected. I am sorry to say that today Julie has passed. She left a trail of amazingness . I met Peggy who now is the national leader of this organization for 18 states and got to totally get down with her last night at the wedding. yes!
Jessica was a fly fishing guide and she was also a medical student. We met the first night and hit it off! The next day I found out that she picked me ! She was going to be my own personal guide. She is a crazy lady fly fisherwoman! Not to mention she is so smart, compassionate, loving and funny and adventurous. We took off in the morning. She taught me to fish. She cheered me on about how natural i was as a fisherman, haha! She celebrated with me, cried with me, shared with me her personal challenges. She went on to graduate from medical school and is now an intern. She helped me to heal from breast cancer and I supported her journey to be a doctor. She is going to be totally amazing at it. She will be a lifelong friend of mine. I adore her
This weekend in Crested Butte we celebrated life, love , fly fishing memories and the gorgeousness that is Crested Butte. I met her family and I saw the love that is palpable between Charlie and Jessica. It was a joy to be at her wedding.
