day ten – freshly picked sea shells

IMG_6618I don’t believe anything is ever an accident.  It wasn’t an accident that I met 6ft Mama  for the very first time in real live person on April 10th, 2011 when our mutual and good friend Cristin  hosted a flickr meet up, an elegant breakfast and trip to the Rose Bowl Flea.  Prior to that I had seen her stream on flickr, admired her from afar.  When I first met her she lived in another state but since has moved here, right here to California not just California but Southern California and on a good day just about 30 minutes from me.  So Every now and again we meet up, we hang out and we laugh, we laugh lots and she has the two most adorable boys, I call them the E’s and every now and again we get the E’s together with my little A and just do the stuff we like to do…..like take pictures and twirl around in tutus and you know those sorts of things.  Today I’m thankful for Sara who drove from her part of town to my part of town just to mount that crazy artichoke.  Talk about personal amazing service!  She and the boys brought me freshly picked sea shells and sand dollars that still were wet from the ocean and smelt like salty sea.  Brace yourself, I’m about to share a handful of pictures of the sort of fun we have together.


   I first met her amongst this gorgeous group of gals at Cristin’s place

I even let her drive my jeep with the top down along the coast this was the first time I met the E’s

  1. You gals are just so great. Love to see the 2 of you doing wonderful, fun, creative, inspirational things together. This really makes me happy to see and smile the whole way through. Keep it up. We all need people around us who make us feel this good. xo

  2. Beautiful photographs. Love them all. And I love your friendships, envy them too. This makes me miss my close female friends, some of whom are back home, and the others are scattered all over the globe. Glad to be friends with you too! xx
