Sweet memories flood as I edit images of a family I dearly treasure. These were taken in 2007 but I can still smell the warm breezes and feel their embrace as we said goodbye.
They live thousands of miles away but in a moment we can slip into deep conversation or giggles. I met Johnathan first. Fell in love with his humor, his caring and his relaxed manner. Then one day his smile grew to twice its normal size. Welcome Desiree! Kind, funny...great to talk to..talented...down to earth..loving. SO good together.
Last month we exchanged a few emails and I smiled huge as felt the warmth of friendship, and realized how blessed I was. Corny and cheesy..yuup. But if you met them, you would know.
On a sad side note, Tanner the wonder pup was recently diagnosed with cancer. I am grateful I can share these images of him playful and so much a member of the family. It reminds me again of how important photography is to our histories.
Thank you friends for sharing some of yours with me.
I love you.
