There are moments you meet someone at just the right time in your life.
As the years pass by and you go through various milestones (graduation, a new job, marriage, divorce, retirement, etc), people in our lives come and go and often some of the significant ones fade away.
I have been feeling a bit depressed, especially since the holidays are rolling in, because I was recalling family and friends that have become estranged. People who were near and dear to me, and I still hold very close to my heart and think of everyday, that for one reason or the other are no longer a part of my life.
Learning to let go of the people who have obviously let go of me has been excruciating and difficult to say the least. But I experienced first hand that “when one door closes another opens” is not just a cliché.
Last week I not only attended a wedding for a couple that have become such amazing friends through the years, but I also met the beautiful (inside and out) DianisLee, creator of the blog Casita Turquesa.
DianisLee is the wife of one of my husband’s old high school friends and when her and I started talking we hit it off! Our husbands even stated it was like we already knew each other! LOL
She is an incredibly supportive wife and a mother to 3 children and she also has a day job! One of the most wonderful things about her is that she is passionate about her goals and dreams and makes an effort to achieve them.
DianisLee’s main endeavor is to start her own business of home styling, including furniture upcycling and revamps. That is where her site Casita Turquesa (Spanish for “little turquoise house”) comes in.
She has an amazing sense of style and I love how she takes old, sometimes unwanted, furniture and turns it into a masterpiece!
DianisLee is worthy of having her business grow because she is talented, driven, humble, and most of all kindhearted.
I want to give a shout out to her work and recommend you show some love on her site because she made an imprint in my heart and she has become a new dear friend in my life.
YOU ARE AWESOME!!

Let us all try to reflect on the people we have in our present and take the time to tell them the significance of their presence in our lives. Whether they have stuck by you for years or if they are someone new that has helped make your days a bit brighter, it is always a pleasure to hear the 3 words:
