Month of Love #15: Chantell Johnson

July is my episode month.
July 9th, in fact.
And I didn't get here alone.
And so, it seems only fitting, that a few of these posts have to do with the many people who played a significant role in helping me to learn, I MATTER.
And don’t get me wrong – that list is LONG.
TOO long for this blog.

However, there a few that, especially this year, this year of Extreme have really shown me that not only do I love them, but also they, in turn, love me.

Chantell.
Johnson.


Go ahead, girl, strut that stuff.
No.

Seriously.
Strut it.
Open a school.
The Chantell School for Posing.
Because, sister.
I mean.
You're gorgeous. 

It was a true delight to get to know you this year.
And I have 175 favorite memories.
I do, I do.

From you cheering me up right before we went into film our first work outs with Chris by showing me how you would lock up if you had to and just wheel off the back of the treadmill.

I loved that.

And that one time in AZ where we dueted A Christmas Song.  
Which is getting posted here in December.

Or that time you went to Paris.
Or the times I called you in a calm state and we chatted about our year.
Or the times I called you in a complete panic and you were like, "Remember when you called me calm, do that."

And Christmas in AZ with some of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever received!?

Did you see your necklace rocking in the workout Chris and Heidi and I did?!


You see, I'm writing this post the night you're episode airs.
So I don't even know what will happen.
But I can tell you.
You are amazing.
And people - the world - is about to FALL IN LOVE with you.

Your energy.
Your style.
Your enthusiasm.
Your Passion
Your kindness.
Your intelligence.
And your beauty.

You blessed a lot of people when you entered the world.
And I'm grateful that OUR paths crossed.

Now, go meet Oprah.
Okay.

And you should totally check out her blog: http://chantellsheree.blogspot.com/ which may have had a little design help of it's own from a Warrior!

And I hope, come the wild, wild weather....

that we shall ALWAYS, be friends.
