Mutual Admiration and Friends for a Lifetime. I am going to miss these two boys.

I held it together last night with just a few tears, but knew the dam was about to open. Scrolling through the incredible photos Raquel Sefton had taken throughout the entire lacrosse season and again last night. This photograph captures it all. (And the tears came.)
These two amazing friends, Chase Betta and Quinn Burnett, teammates, friends and demons on the field, not to mention extremely PASSIONATE and caring. Pictured here, you can see Quinn and Chase happy, nostalgic, and proud of one another – they both received the 2015 Leadership Award.

Once again, Piedmont prevailed as the DVAL League Champions, now for 4 years running. Chase and Quinn are 2 of the Fabulous Five who started out their high school career on the Piedmont High School Varsity Team. It’s been an amazing journey. And I could not be more proud of these two boys and their accomplishments as well as their ability to motivate and cultivate a strong bond within their #lacrosse family. Quinn also received MVP (he tripled the goal setting record at Piedmont High an incredible feat! and Chase received the Heart and Hustle award for setting the record for most ground balls. Somehow he always found a way to scoop it up whether by running through the pile of boys coming from behind or kicking the ball out of the way… he did whatever it took.)  [Read More..]

if only my eyes could take photographs // inspiration comes in all forms

if only my eyes could take photographs…i would share it all with you:

If you’ve ever read one of my posts, follow me on Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter, or read my book — Contained Beauty — than you know that I am a very visual person. It is simply how I learn and how I relate.

Today my husband gifted me with my first high resolution digital camera with social media capabilities. So naturally I’m excited to be able to share more vividly with you, what I see, what I love and what I feel.

Through my words and my photographs I hope to inspire and encourage you to follow your path and embark on your personal journey, whatever that may be.

There are so many ways one can be inspired – whether it be through a photograph, through travel, watching a sports event or after a spa treatment, deep meditation or through interior design, fashion, art or dance.

May something I share with you today, ignite a passion in you tomorrow.

As Mark Twain once said, ‘The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation.’

Do what you love and happiness will surround you. Debbi

XOXO!

inspiration comes in all forms:

I am constantly inspired by my son and his teammates. On Saturday their team won 3 games in a row. The second game was won by just 1 point; the 3rd game went into sudden death, which in LAX is called a brave heart. A brave heart is when each team gets just 2 players, one goalie and one face-off player, and whoever gets the first goal wins the game. Super nerve-wracking!

The playoff game followed the next day, with the winner of the morning game to play our boys. The Tribe won, so both teams took the field at 11:30AM. Unfortunately, our boys not quite warmed up, almost immediately fell behind –6 to 1. However, what transpired over the next 30 minutes was an incredible turn of events. Points were made by our boys, then the other team and so on and so on until we pulled ahead after a nail-biting 50 minutes, to beat the Tribe by one, just one point, with a final score of 9 to 8.

Now if that’s not inspirational I don’t know what is! Those boys gave it their all and were not going to lose, even though they could have just sat back and given in without a fight. But they didn’t. They pulled together and made it happen! Congrats boys! A great life lesson. Keep trying even when things aren’t going your way, and Never Give Up.
