The two or three of you who actually see this probably aren’t overly impressed with my late night, under the influence of a few (or five) glasses of wine, flash photography skills. I actually had some really cute, technically much better photos of my kids this week but chose to use this for a few reasons. You may remember from this post that I made three resolutions for 2010; exercise three times a week (I’m going to start this one in March), be more intentional about spending time with friends and to shoot more for me.
This photo proves that I’m doing two and three.
Jay and Kathy are two of our best friends and favorite people in the world. Brad has known Jay since college. He was our best man (and gave the best toast I’ve ever heard) when we got married in 2002. I didn’t really know Kathy all that well back then, but today I feel like she’s always been my friend. On Valentine’s Day they called us around 4:30 to see if we wanted to meet at the gym to let the kids run around (I know, so romantic). We didn’t make it to the gym but they came over for dinner that night and I snapped this picture while our boys played Star Wars Wii and our girls watched Snow White. I’m so thankful to have people in my life that I can invite over on a moments notice and not have to clean, cook something fancy or take off my dayjamas for.
The second reason I chose it is that Kathy has already thanked me for not sharing any on Facebook and I’m rotten like that.
MeganHA, I’m taking note that you snap pics of your friends and post them on your blog when they’re not looking. 😉
GinaWhat’s the cool reflection in the glass that you captured?
Cathy MoffittI love this picture! Kathy has been my best friend since we were 2 years old, growing up in Long Island! I miss her so much down here in GA! Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture (even though she may not have wanted you to! 🙂 I am jealous that you get to share these impromptu moments with her, but so glad she has great friends there in Boston!
janet McculleyI second what Cathy said. You are lucky to be such great friends with two great and wonderful people.I don’t get to see them as much as I’d like to and am not close enough for the impromptu get togethers so I am jealous too:) It’s a gorgeous photo…you are very talented (even when you’ve had a few glasses of wine!:)
