sarah + finn come to town…

our good friends sarah and finn came to visit us in dc this past weekend. they make for a pretty adorable couple, right? the three of us went to juilliard together. in fact, i was reminding them over dinner last night about how i witnessed one of their first conversations in the juilliard lobby after class. i was the awkward third wheel who just didn’t get that i should keep walking and give them some space. haha. i’m pretty sure i stood there for an entire 20 minutes waiting for them to wrap up their conversation so sarah and i could continue to make our way back to the dorm. awkward.
anyway, eleanor is such a fan of them both so she was in heaven their entire visit. thanks again for coming, friends! we are already missing you.
  1. so sweet :) it's always the greatest when old friends come to visit.

  2. Grown men on see-saws always make me smile :) Looks like a wonderful visit.

    On my first day at university, I was that awkward third wheel waiting for my friend to finish chatting with a guy she had just met, while waiting for our ID cards to be registered… Three years later they are still just as smitten as they were during that first encounter I witnessed! It makes me giggle every time I think about it, so this post really made me smile. Thanks for sharing :)
