Remember When......


25 years ago today
I stood witness and watched
one of my very best friends say
I do

it some ways it seems like a lifetime ago....


here we are ~ in all our "little bo peep" glory
making sure that everything is just right


then a shot of all the girls
I remember the day and night well.

Roxanne ~ but Rocky to those that know and love her so well
is probably the closest thing I have to a sister

we have been through thick and thin
in good times and bad

we can go months and not see or talk to each other
but we always come back to that common place
and catch up on each others lives
usually ending up on a marathon phone conversation
because we get each other

this is who I went away with last week
we had lots of time to catch up ~ a 5 hour car drive can do that

we poured it all out ~ a couple of times I thought
we may have to pull over due to tears
but we made it

on the way back we sang
oh the songs we sang
and played remember when ~ remember this
and this one reminds me of....

I so so glad that we took the time
and spent the time
because I love this girl with all my heart.

.... a lovely time for you both to catch up and reminisce Lori. A long term friend is a precious thing and something to be cherished.
I am pretty excited as I am going to meet Simone on Monday !!!!!! It's only taken us three years to arrange it and we both live on the outskirts of London !!!! We are meeting Vicki Archer from French Essence and are going to the State rooms at Buckingham Palace and then having lunch. I shall be sure to send your love and will tell you all about it. XXXX

Ah, this made me tear up! I am so happy you got to have this time together!!

6 days and I get to see my sister - I know we'll be having crazy fun together too. Then I will do the ugly cry when she leaves... ugh!

I"m with Mikal...I teared up too. I had to look twice at the second photo...I thought it was Matt dressed up in a wedding dress!!!
I'll say one thing: you and Roxanne have not aged. You are both so beautiful.
And I was honored to capture your friendship...it was one of my favorites.
