I don't know even where to begin.
Its been a week and a half since the event and I still think about it at least once a day. It brings a smile to my face and a warm feeling in my heart, knowing there are so many people that care. After I smile I usually say a quick prayer in my head to thank everyone that came, were involved and those that couldn't make it but sent their love and prayers (sounds cheesy but its true). I don't think anyone heard one negative thing about it.
To My Friends:
This past year has been a tough one for many of my friends. 2006 had to be the most... Emotional year of my life, and for many of our lives. A loss of two friends (Jerry and Jo), friends loosing friends and relatives, cancer running amuck, and me escaping death because of a Dr.'s hunch that I had a blood clot in my lungs (PE, probably the most physically painful experience of my life.) made 2006 seem inevitably the worst year ever. But then there was our engagement and marriage. I am now married to the girl of my dreams thanks to 2006, and also have a baby on the way to put the "cherry on top." John Pham (not related to former Tawny Pham) made a good point in that, it was the first time in all this chaos, Orion's heart was the first thing we could do something about.
We decided HEARTISTY marked the official start of 2007... with so much hope, love, and celebration of friends and family.
A special thanks to Ali, Kenny, Jenn, John, Anh, Kim, and Dominic for making HEARTISTY possible.
