Lie With Me
August 7, 2008I love this girl like crazy!!!! I can't even express the amount of joy she has brought me and how great it was hanging with her at LIB! We had such a great time. I'd known her for almost 2 years before that, but that is when we really bonded. She brought me great peace and support. I love you hon! Let's not lose eachother like I've seemed to have lost so many!
December 25, 2006I remember thinking I had fallen in love with Beth the first time I saw her. That wasn't when it happened. Three years later she looked into my eyes and told me she considered me a friend. My friends, that was when the true love blossomed. I knew then that she would stop at nothing to ensure that I would never have to suffer alone. I hope she knows I would do everything possible to see her smile. She has a nack for opening your eyes to the largest of miracles in the most mundane things. Beth I love you and hope to see you soon.
March 29, 2006Wow, I can't believe it's taken me this long to write a testimonial for this fabulous, gorgeous, extraordinary being! I guess it's because although I've known her for a while, I haven't really KNOWN her and that changes each and every time I see here these days. She is amazingly raw, giving, loving, supportive and is up to some big things. I can't wait to see where this free-spirited soul lands and I hope it's always somewhere close enough to me for a dive bar beer, road trip, late night conversation over icecream, last minute crazy adventure or ...anything! I love her dearly and REALLY mean that! She grew on me bit by bit and I love learning more and more amazing things about her. The amazing things that have been there all the time and the ones that are newly blossomed. I highly suggest getting to be friends with her. Once you are, you are for life and trust me...that's a really awesome thing!
March 20, 2006OK, now while I feel it necessary to give this woman a testimonial, I first feel that it's necessary to warn you about a couple of things
1)she'll make your Monkey slippers commit naughty acts
2)she may try to trick you into drunk blogging
Once you get past these two little things(and then again who wants to get past them when they're so much fun?), you'll find an insanely loyal friend, one who won't leave your bedside for 3 days when you're crippled with a bad spine. She gives good hugs. She gives good conversation, and she'll make you laugh.
Anyone who has a problem with that is asking for a butt-whooping.
November 28, 2005I think Beth's twice as strong as she thinks she is. Beth gives amazing hugs and wonderous smiles. Her ethics are impeccable and she's one of the most respectful people I've met.
I consider myself lucky to know her.
July 27, 2005I met this girl twice in my life and the second time I did, we both thought how come it was today that we talked for the first time.
She is such an awesome woman and has so much girl power it just explodes out there. Go "girl power"!
June 20, 2005beth has this amazing trick: she can make you feel loved, adored, appreciated, like the only person in a crowded room--and she can do it w/out being too cloying, or annoying or sentimental. that's b/c she's also tough; she's a realist and a romantic. but mostly she's just the sweetest gal you know, or if you don't know, that you should. there's enough room in her heart for everyone, or nearly everyone.
January 26, 2005OK- Do not let this Princessa act fool ya, she has now been renamed El Fiasco to be followed by Beth is driving badly, which we will make into a movie someday, all of this came from a superb girls weekend!!!
But all kidding aside, I met this girl almost a year ago, and she has since became one of my closest and dearest friends, if you need someone to fight for you to the death she will do it with no fear what so ever! She is one of my only confidants, I can tell her anything and never be judged just loved.
No one loves and cuddles or causes trouble or goofs off (well the list goes on and on) like this girl!!!!
If you get to meet her ask her about the little old lady in Wal-Mart while shopping for the burn will ya???
To My Dear Friend, Steve Sewell

Here are some updates of the last couple weeks…
Mom’s boyfriend, who has been in our lives for about 12 years and is a man I adore, is recovering well from his 8.5 hour open heart by-pass surgery last week.

You are everything.
I wasn’t looking.
You weren’t expected.
And you have become everything.
You challenge me and you support me.
You ground me at the same time you make my head spin.
You have taken an already open and fearless woman and have created a space where I am finding vulnerability and bravery like I have never experienced. (It’s funny how they go hand-in-hand.)
With you I am finding the space to be the person I was meant to ... read more

Tonight’s lesson, boys and girls, is you must be both smarter and more sober than the bug you are trying to kill.Wed, June 4, 2008 - 12:15 AM permalink - 3 comments
It all started in the last hour or so when I noticed out of the corner of my eye an eight legged uninvited guest. Normally, I am afraid of spiders. Seriously, I am terrified of them. Well, the tiny ones, anyway, as in the ones that you can’t see coming. When I was in the first grade or so, I found a tarantula on the playground at school in OC and the teacher just about kill... read more
