My best friend in high school and I would re-enact sketches from SNL, practice cheers (and we weren’t even cheerleaders, we were just really awesome), drink mochas as kids from the Pacific Northwest, listen to Dave Matthews, and, as girls do, fantasize about our future. A few of our fantasized plans included: Us each having the song, “I Do” by Paul Bryant for our first dance at our respective weddings, living by each other and of course, having kids at the same time. After high school life took us in different directions all the while keeping in touch. Then as luck would have it, in our own timing, we each wound up living in the Tri-States. What a lucky girl I am to have her so close — part of our fantasy coming to life. I love that we’ve been friends all these years and being able to see her sweet family grow.
Back in November, (catching up on some blogging here) we met at tree farm for a family lifestyle session. Perhaps I’m biased, but I just adore these frames. And, to CJ, as I still affectionally call her: “Through thick and thin!” Love you. xo
