How can I possibly do justice of telling the story of this dear friend? When there's so much I admire about her, and the extent of all I appreciate can't possibly all fit inside a few frames. For example, you can't know from this set that she's got a love story with her husband that involves a deep love of Chipotle and rivals fairy tale proportions. That they throw the most original and fun parties, especially their Halloween costume wedding. Or that she's one of the few people in the world I trusted to watch my first baby. Or that her ability as an art teacher to calm down the energy of a high needs Kindergarten class to a state of peace and grace is one I have always aspired to. How do you celebrate how generous and beautiful her soul is? I know I can't represent all these layers in a set of photos. But I can try to show you how much her daughters adore her. And that she makes a mean chocolate chip banana bread.
