Words are too hard to come by still.  Plus, the pictures are much more beautiful.

I've called her Rebel for 5 years, and this week I had to call her Melissa.  It was difficult.

Sometimes you just need to go to a place where you don't think there's enough insulin in the world to cover what you're eating.

You can't say goodbye to Friends for Life without at least saying hello to Mickey & Minnie.

The hugs I've been hearing about since I first met Scott online really are as good as people say.

I feel beyond blessed to call this woman my friend.

Last but not least, and what this conference is all about:

    I love this, Briley. My favorite one? The one about diabetes helping you find your voice. 🙂

    Great pictures Briley! And it looks like an amazing time 🙂 I’m hoping to get to one of these conferences one day.

    I was a little choked up, even BEFORE I saw the picture of me and you. That put me over the edge. So glad to call you my friend for life!

    Was great to finally meet you, Briley! And loved all the photos you’ve got there! So very smiley that you’ve found your voice, and are so willing and able to share it with us.

    I agree with Scott – the world would be a lesser place without your voice so the YCDT picture is my favorite. Mom is always right and you and Brian’s caricatures are awesome! Great photos – glad my little pinger made the cut. I am so very grateful I was able to meet you and even hang a bit.
