until next time ~

hello my friends. i won't draw this post out, i will just say~ see you soon. it's been many, many years that i have been in this lovely space, and you all have been so kind to me. you have loved me like a daughter, embraced me like a sister, warmed me like the sun. and for that, i thank you.

for now it's time to take a break, to enjoy my baby turning 18, to celebrate my 25th wedding anniversary, and to live life a bit louder. : ) and of course, visit you in your beautiful spaces. ; )

i haven't decided if i will blog in the near future or not, but if i do, i want you all to feel welcome to walk along, on my new journey. i will be here and there online, so i'm sure our paths will cross. palms clasped.

until next time my friends...
you are loved.

xoxo

Oh no! I will miss you so very much. Yes to living your life out loud. I recently heard you were moving to Paris. Could this be true? Silly to mention I am sure. If it is true I hope you will look me up Christina. I also hope you will share your LCB talents here.

Merci for all the heart you put into your work.

Jennifer Richardson said...

Christina, can I just tell you
how much aliveness and light
you've scattered into my life,
seeds sown well
and watered and tended
....really, one of my models
in the blogworld.
I honor you as a mother among
the artful women of wisdom I enjoy
and thank you from the bottom of
my heart for all of the deposits
you've made into my life.

You are a pearl and a treasure
and I thank God for the beautiful
gift that is you.

love and oh do please let me know
when you're ready
...if you build it we will come:)
-jennifer

i know how important living is. just living without any obligations to anyone but yourself, so i thank you for being honest.

you will forever hold a spot in my heart......xoxo

Tracey said...

I will surely miss you. I loved coming by your place for a breather as your place was surely a feat respite; beautiful pictures, short, simple, comforting words. Bless you and yours as you move forward into 2013. ;-)

RD said...

Oh, no...you will be greatly missed. Your gentle words and gentle images brought kindness and soothing to this place. I'm sorry to see you go--hopefully not for long.
P.S. I too am celebrating 25 years of marriage and 18 years as a mother. Unbelievable...

While I am so sad to hear you won't be blogging, I fully understand where you are coming from. Like all the others I also want you to know what a calm and peaceful place I found in Soul Aperture. You were also the first blogger I contacted when I was trying to decided whether to join the blogging community! Your help is what helped me take the plunge and I've not regretted it once! I will never forget you! I wish you and your family only the best this life has to offer, Christina. I will stay in touch via email if that's all right with you. God speed my very good friend!!!

Tracy said...

LOVE, JOY, LIGHT, PEACE :o) ((HUGS))

Charisse said...

My beautiful friend. I love you always in my spirit. I treasure you! Trust me when I tell you, I wear your gift almost everyday! It is a part of me. It represents what God is capable of.

writergirldreams said...

oh how you blessed me, and gave me a welcome distraction, a moment of peace, a word to hold on to, and so much inspiration! I found you when I was in the darkest valley of my life, right after a breast cancer diagnosis. I became a blogger too, that's how I found you. Thank you thank you thank you Lady, I bow to you, for all the times a little bit of you was like starlight and got me through a long night.

I am almost three years out now from my breast cancer diagnosis, from Stage 3 to cancer free Baby! and I am living my life like it's golden, golden, golden.

God bless you as you have blessed others.

I hadn't realized how long it has been since I stopped by!

I will dearly miss this wonderful sweet, inspiring place Christina. It is one of the first blogs I started following and it always had words and photos of peace and beauty. Hopefully our paths will continue to cross from time to time.

Have a wonderful, joyous time away!
