I am thankful for dear, dear friends. Back in the fall we got to travel to Baltimore to spend a whirlwind weekend with all the friends we left this summer. We had such a wonderful, crazy, exhausting, delicious, jam-packed weekend bouncing from house to house in the city we love so much. As you saw a few weeks back I also squeezed in a few photo shoots while we were there, and this last one is extra special cause it is full of some of our favorite people.
I’ve been holding onto it and not blogging it partly because of valid excuses like Thanksgiving and Christmas and all the hectic, wonderful times that go along with holidays… but I’m also just being a baby. Like the way my Little Monster scrunches his eyes shut so tight and twists his body away any time I start a sentence with “Hey buddy…” cause he knows that will be followed with some horrible fate like “it’s time for lunch” or “it’s time to go potty” or “it’s time to clean up.” By trying REALLY HARD to not look at or think about writing this post I can try REALLY HARD to pretend that I still live three doors down from these beautiful friends of mine.
Meet Matt and Shelly and their kids Rowan and Lucia.
It was so hard and so wonderful to even write this post. I miss these faces so much. I just want to bear hug my computer monitor until all my friends pop out. Since technology isn’t quite there yet I will just bid you adieu as I awkwardly climb onto my desk and hold a machine.
p.s. Aside from the annoying we-haven’t-mastered-teleportation thing, isn’t technology so sweet? Soooo thankful for e-mail, Instagram, and hundreds of treasured images stored in my computer and hung on my walls of the friends I’ve met and grown to love in each setting of my life.
