Have you ever met someone and felt as if you’ve known them your whole life? Well, that’s how I feel about this darling girl. It amazes me that we haven’t even known each other a year, and I feel as if I’ve known her all my life. You could say we met last January, or February online, but the journey officially began when I met her in person at the Delight Retreat this past April. From the moment we were together, I felt as if I could tell her anything. We shared our hearts and laughed into the night.
Although we live across the country from each other, I never feel the distance. I may forever be missing her, but I’m so blessed by her friendship. I’m thankful for the beautiful light she is to this world, the depth in every text and video chat, and knowing that we don’t have to talk everyday, while still being thought of and prayed for. She has been one of my biggest blessings in 2015.
In honor of her birthday today, I’m sharing a collection of photos that take me back to the summer. She flew in for a visit, and even though it was just for a long weekend, we filled every waking moment. Our days were filled with much laughter, heart-to-hearts, coffee shops, adventuring, photo-shoots, watching RV (didn’t know there was another soul out there who could laugh at RV time and time again as much as I do…total kindred spirits) being in the car for hours as we road-tripped up north listening to the same cd over and over again, to boating, tubing, and jet-skiing. How did I get so blessed in life to be the one who gets to call her friend?!
Kalee – You my friend, are so precious, so beautiful on the inside and out. Your friendship means so much to me and I want to thank you for who you are to this world. Jesus shines through you and you are such a blessing to all those who know you. I can’t wait to see where the Lord takes you on your own photography journey. Counting down the days until we see each other again. I’ll be giving you the biggest hug ever when you pick me up from the airport. Love you my dear friend. <3
