a 30 years of Leslie


(Me and Les taking a nursing break on the way up Wheeler mountain)

Years and years ago before I headed off to London and Les off to Russia, Leslie made me the most wonderful book of quotes to take with me. Each page is designed differently, made perfect with Les's great handwriting, one hundred quotes in all. Each quote was like a little piece of this great friend I got to take with me wherever I went over the years. I can't tell you how many times I used one of these quotes to try to comfort or inspire someone but most of all myself. Leslie is one of those people in my life that liberates me, she is so true to herself and always has been. She has such a great heart and the uncommon courage to follow it.
To celebrate 30 years of Leslie I picked four quotes from the book of quotes she gave me that most remind me of my fearless, loving friend and sister. I love you!

We also have two songs to dedicate to you one from Deli and one from me and also a "hey big spender" past blast

I wish I had more scandalous pictures to post but they're all back in Utah next year I will get you back Les!
