I mentioned yesterday that I am thankful for blog buds. I am also thankful for real life buds. Two of my IRL buds, have been absolutely amazing and supportive over the past 6 plus tough months. Julie and Dorothy have had late night meetings with me, sometimes weekly, sometimes bi-weekly, whatever we could fit in.
Julie is an amazing amateur photographer and she is great. A few weeks ago, she took pictures of my kids and of our entire family. She and Dorothy surprised me with a shutterfly book. I photographed a few of the pages and they are below. They also had a canvas portrait of Akila's picture made which is the bottom picture. I am truly blessed beyond words.
