Emotions - June

Breakfast with Laura

There is only one way to feel about my friendship with my dear friend, and that is:

Grateful:
1. Warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received <I am grateful to you for your help>
2. Expressing or actuated by gratitude <a grateful letter>
3. Pleasing to the mind or sense; agreeable or welcome; refreshing <a grateful breeze>

Several months ago, Laura mentioned the idea of us attending an in-person photography workshop together.  I almost didn't go because I wasn't sure I could afford to take the time off from work.  But I decided that life is short and that I had to make it work.  Plus I was eager to meet this friend of mine after a 2 year online friendship.

To say that we talked non-stop would be an understatement.

To say that we laughed and cried together as we discussed our goals (both photography and life in general) would be an understatement.

To say that we walked away from our time together with a deeper appreciation for each other would be an understatement.

After the workshop, we spent a few days decompressing in Seattle and I made this photograph of my friend over breakfast.  I am especially grateful for Laura and her support of my photography, my project goals, and my family.

We also both ordered the swedish pancakes....hello, parallels!! <3

Head over to Laura's website next to see what she captured this past month!
