over the weekend we got to spend time with tim, kesh and their darling baby roo (who, once you consider the time difference in australia where they live and all, was born just a few hours after samson). let me tell you, it was one fun, food-filled weekend! (with beautiful photographs to prove it because tim is made of pure talent.)
one of my favorite things about the blogging community are the long lasting friendships we have made online with so many. and what’s even better is when those online friendships are finally brought to life by meeting that friend in person: someone you have admired from afar, who has inspired and encouraged you, or taught you so much with their words and stories and photographs. someone half way around the world, even. this blogging world is pretty rad sometimes.
anyway, that is what saturday felt like. spending the day showing friends from the internet our favorite city in all the world and feeling like we were old friends the entire time. feeling like you can share your dreams or frustrations about life with them and they are listening. talking all things baby and children and not feeling judged. eating your third gluttonous meal of the day before 2 o’clock with friends who are happy to do the same! i guess what i am trying to say is, saturday was awesome.
tim is also one of my favorite photographers. and he was so kind to whip out his camera and document our family in the city together. this meant so much to us because we don’t have any photos of the four of us besides that time i forced my friend julie who was visiting from dc last december to take one of us while we were standing on the street (it’s the one you see on my sidebar. thank you, julie!) these photos are also extra special to me because they capture us as a family of four here in new york city. this city feels like home- it’s where it all started… and who knows what will happen over the years to come, but it’s where we sometimes imagine we’ll be in the long run, too.
many more photos to come… because i love literally every photo tim took. and also, it’s my blog and stuff. ;) thank you, tim! we love you guys.
