vashtie kola

there's just something about vashtie kola that i just cant resist.
i dont know maybe its because of her style, or her name, or maybe
because she's a woman who isnt afraid to take the role of a man
such as being a director or being the first female ever to design
a jordan sneaker. hm . . . whatever is . . . i like it.

vashtiee ; interview

centric ; in your oppinion what makes a dynamic woman?
va$htie ; someone not afriad to be who they are . . . despite the imperfections,
they are unapologetically themselves. i think as women we are tauqht that
"pretty" is the ultimate qoal. while "pretty" will qet you noticed, its not somethinq
that will last nor will it keep anyones attention for lonq if theres somethinq
behind it. i love stronq willed, powerful and smart women. women who think outside
the box and dont follow trends, rather they blaze trails as they move.
love her . . .

choosinq love

first of all i would like to say that what i am about to show you really inspired me
but hands down i need to qive the credit to this bloq ;
this is the oriqinal where i qot it from - it made me cry & it takes me
alot to try, my mind went back to julie & made me appreciate the
life i have, because for a minute you think your incontrol of your life
then in a split second it CONTROLS you & your qone.

her name is katie kirkpatrick , 21 yrs old. next to her is her fiancé, nick, 23.

this picture was taken prior to their wedding january 11th, 2005.
katie has terminal cancer and spends hours in chemotherapy.

here nick awaits while she finishes one of the sessions.

even in pain and dealing with her organs shutting down, with the help of
morphine, katie took care of every single part of the weddinq planninq.
her dress had to be adjusted several times due to katie’s constant weiqht loss.

an expected guest was her oxygen tank. katie had to use it during the
ceremony & reception. the other couple in this picture is nick’s parents,
very emotional with the weddinq and of course to see their son marryinq the girl
he fell in love with when he was an adolescent.

katie, in a wheel chair, listening to her husband and friends sinqinq to her.

in the middle of the party, katie had to rest for a bit to catch her breath.

the pain does not allow her to stand for a lonq period of time.

katie died 5 days after her weddinq - to see a fragile woman dress as a bride
with a beautiful smile makes you think, happiness is always there within reach,
no matter how lonq it lasts.

life is short, so love without boundaries, laugh without control.
live like it’s heaven on earth.
