So this was supposed to be a ten day blog series…and then life got in the way. I’m going to wrap up this little series this week. And how is it that this week wraps up June? Crazy!
Five People who mean a lot…
That’s kind of a loaded one, especially for narrowing it down to just five people. So I’m going to take my creative license and use it to answer this. I have the natural answers, and those spots are taken up by the people who mean so much to me – my husband, my sister, and my parents. They are the givens. I feel like I should highlight a few others who mean so much to me (in no particular order, of course).
Mercy - My cousin. I totally used to be jealous of her when we were little. Because she was the second in the cousin line up and used to get lots of attention. She was loud, boisterous, and rambunctious…and I think I’d still use those words to describe her now. Except now, I also consider her a close friend and confidante. It’s so weird to think we’re adults now. She’s also an amazing musician – check her out here.
Maggie – We’ve known each other for 20 years! That’s so crazy to think it’s been that long already. And though we don’t talk on the phone very often, or see each other (even less), whenever we do reconnect, it’s like no time was lost at all. I just spoke to her on her birthday last week, and truly, it was like just picking up the conversation where we left off last time.
Krystle – I forget exactly how we met, but we bonded over commonalities and shared opinions. And just like that we became BFFs with long acronyms. She was my lifeline to San Diego when I studied abroad in France, calling her during the wee hours of the night (for me) from my favorite phone booth. And it’s the same thing with Krystle. We don’t see each other often or talk that often, but when we do, it’s like it’s only been a few days.
Vanessa – She’s like my first adult girlfriend..the kind that you call every few days and chat with for hours. I know that when Vanessa calls me I have to make sure I have at least an hour reserved because time passes that quickly with our conversations. She’s been an amazing help and advice giver since living in Texas – and we shared so many fun, crazy stories on our road trip last year to College Station.
Karyn & Maggie – I went to a photographer meeting in search of friends. I know, that sounds totally lame, but it’s true. Three years ago, I went to a group meeting/shoot, not knowing anyone, and that’s where I met Karyn and Maggie. They were my very first photographer friends in Texas, and I still get together with them. Turns out they are both transplants to Texas too, and that’s probably why we get along so well.
