Friends Worthy of Film.
Sometimes facebook is good for something. A couple of years ago I reconnected online with my childhood best friend. We literally had not spoke since 8th grade. We were both timid at first. After mutual stalking of each other's profiles and instagram we came to realize we had a lot of the same interests. The last year we communicated more and more and when I went home to NY for Christmas we actually spoke on the phone and met up in person! It is absolutely insane the amount of things we have in common. From our struggles over the years, to our belief system, to our love of the outdoors! We are both mom's of 20 something daughters that have similar interests and goals (college, nature, travel) and 12 year old boys in Boy Scouts who are now friends. It was fantastic to catch up and just have such a significant piece of my childhood back in my life again. I have always admired Emily. She was not just my best friend but as I grew up, so much of her influence shaped me as a person and a mother. I am fortunate that I am able to tell her how much she meant to me back then and how much it means for her to be a part of my life again. She talked about going on an epic road trip this summer, which brings her right past my place. We had high hopes and lots planned but that darn rain foiled half of the day and she got to experience Atlanta traffic at its worst...but it was wonderful regardless.
After sweating to death hiking Arabia Mountain, we headed over to my friend's place for a surprise visit with her llamas.
From there we ate pasta and Morelli's famous ice cream, then toured a few famous Walking Dead locations.
As you can tell from the photo above, the rain was coming in hard and fast. It was actually a pretty bad storm. The plan was to hit lullwater park for a good hike but that will have to wait for another time.
I hoard my polariod film for special occasions. This sure was pretty special!
If you are in the New York area you should totally check out Emily's Blog. It is all about things to do in New York and living in a tiny house.
